Not mother of the year.....again
Tonights bad mother moment is all in the eyes of the beholder. I don't think it makes me a bad mom but Hailey does.
About a month ago Hailey got a tattoo on her wrist for the baby she lost. It's small, delicate and girlie. I wasn't thrilled but realized it could have been worse.
Tonight her boyfriend gave her a new tattoo. Hailey is not a fan of needles or pain so she wanted me to hold her hand. When I said no she broke out the crocodile tears and the pouty face and reminded me that mothers should always support their children, even if they are getting a tattoo she doesn't agree with.
Nope, not happening girlfiriend. There was much stomping and using her best frowny face on me, reminding me that I'm a bad mommy.
I stood my ground, baby girl got her tattoo anyway, even without her Mommy to hold her hand. I'm sure one day she will forgive me but when she is 50 and she hates these tattoos at least she won't be able to say I encouraged it.
