“I made a hot fudge sundae and put it on the couch while I let my dogs outside. I sat back down on the couch and forgot the sundae was there! I was too tired to change and forgot all about it. But when I went to go get dinner that night, everyone was laughing at me. My husband said it looked like I’d pooped my pants!” — Cassidy F.

“I reached for my cell phone and put it in my son’s mouth, thinking it was a bottle.” — Celissa K.

“I kept trying to answer the phone by picking up the baby monitor — I did it quite a few times before my husband corrected me.” — Amanda S.

“I have twins, and I accidentally dressed my baby girl in boy’s clothes and my baby boy in girl’s clothes.” — Tiffany K.

“I tossed what I thought was a wet cloth diaper toward the laundry basket. It turns out that there was poop in it, and it got on the wall. Yuck!” — Jacquelyn P.

“After loading my toddler and newborn into the car to go to the grocery store, I got in the front seat, looked down and realized that my pants were on inside out.” — Megan M.

“We went down to the police station to sign some paperwork after we adopted my daughter. I walked in, sat my daughter down in her car seat, filled out my paperwork and left. As I was walking to my van, I realized I had forgotten my daughter! At least she was in a safe place!” — Sharla H.

“When I was brushing my teeth, I put hand soap on my toothbrush. Thankfully, I realized it before I put it in my mouth!” — Courtney J.

“I looked out the window and thought, ‘Huh, the neighbors across the street have the same car as us.’ Then I realized it was our car on their front lawn! I had forgotten to put on the parking brake and it rolled there!” — Michelle E.

“I fell asleep pumping — for 45 minutes! My nipples didn’t feel so great after that.” — Christine S.

“My husband and I were going out to eat for the first time with our daughter. While I was trying to get dressed, my daughter was throwing a fit. I got a lot of weird looks at the restaurant, and when I looked down, I realized I’d forgotten to put on a shirt underneath my sheer top — you could see everything not covered by my bra. My hubby said he just thought it was a new style.” — Kayla D.

“My cat jumped on my lap while I was starting to fall asleep on the couch. I said, ‘Oh, you must be hungry. Guess it’s time to feed you.’ I cradled my kitty and tried to nurse her!” — Jessica S.

“I used to wake up and think my daughter was on my bed. There were a few nights I found myself rocking a pillow while she was sound asleep in her crib.” — Angie G.

“My husband and I left all our groceries at the store once. The checker ran out to find us as we were loading our daughter into the car. All I can say is: We remembered the baby!” — Megan W.
