This mornings superb Mummy fail:
Small person was 2 yards from me in the kitchen. I was making tea so not directly watching the small person. Hear cat miaow. Run at a speed Usain Bolt would be proud of to the lounge to see the small person holding the cat’s tail. I panic and dive in to try to free the cat without her scratching my daughter. Sadly the cat panics and tries to run off. Small person refuses to let go of her tail so gets pulled halfway across the lounge before finally letting go.
Cue 10 mins of howling and Mummy-guilt.
Never did finish making that tea.
