Most embarassing thing your dc said/did...

post #1 of 230
Thread Starter 
I was talking to a friend this AM about what "wonderful" things our kids have said/done to embarass us...Her son, in the midst of potty training, decided while mom and dad were looking at the sinks in Home Depot that he had to "go" - Well, Lo and Behold, there were a bunch of perfectly nice pottys right there on the wall in front of him! So......my friend turns around just in time to see him baring all his goodies and using the potty lowest to the ground.

So I began thinking about my most embarrasing moment with one of my 3 kids - and I think it HAS to be when my ds was about 3 years old. We were shopping at Target and we kept bumping into the same nice lady. We ended up on the pool toy aisle and strated talking about how we were both having a pool party and needed some toys. My ds, so sweet, looks at her and says "I don't like brown people." Now, this woman was African American, my ds best friends were Indian and African American. I was MORTIFIED! All I could do was smile sheepishly and walk away....

To this day I have no idea where he even got that idea from....

So...what oh, so cute (I wish I could crawl under a rock) things has your dc done??

Last year when my DD was 3 we went to Baltimore (we're in CA) to visit my MIL for the first time (so this may have been more embarrassing for me since this was the first time I'd met her, in all the years I've been with her son). She lives in an assisted-living apartment complex for seniors and is very socially active there. Of course she wanted to take DD around for her friends to see her only grandchild. So they went off for a little bit together. DD seemed okay with it, if not jumping for joy. The next day, my MIL wanted to take my daughter around again to meet some other friends, so she asked DD, "Do you want to go see my friends with me?" The reply was, "No Grandma, I don't like your friends." Ha!

Then MIL asks, "Do you like me?" (what kind of question is that to ask a 3 yo???). There was a long pause, during which I was holding my breath, but DD said, "Yes, Grandma, you and me are friends!"

our son took a squat under a table at our favorite restaurant once and loaded up his diaper... we noticed so we tried to pay pretty quickly to get out of there... before we made it out the door, a little turd rolled out of his pants and onto the carpet.

When my daughter was 3 she loved to tell anyone who would listen that her daddy is fat and sleeps in his underwear.

When ds was about 2 1/2 we flew down to meet dh at a conference he was attending. When we got to the hotel, we met up with dh and some of his collegues. Ds was just learning to shake hands so when we introduced him, he reached out and shook one African-American man's hand. Then he proceeded to wipe his hand off on his pants and say, "I got some black on me." As I stood there thinking, "please let lightening hit me now" the man said, "that's my skin buddy, it doesn't come off." He handled it so well. The really crazy thing is, my best friend is Chinese, her boyfriend is black, our next door neighbors are Hispanic....he knew people of all colors! It wasn't as if he had never had any contact with people that weren't white. I just wanted to DIE.

When we're in public restrooms, ds likes to ask me (at top volume, of course), "DO YOU HAVE TO GO PEE OR POOP, MAMA?" And he asks until he gets an answer.

Oddly enough, he doesn't usually ask me this at home.

DH told me a similar story about DS, and I crack up just thinking about it.

About a year and a half ago, DH took DS to Target. Well, DH felt the urge, so he and DS headed to the restroom. DS was in the stall with DH, and as soon as DS figured out what was going on, he loudly announed to the rest of the people in the restroom, "Daddy's pooping!"

Holy cow, it took me 10 minutes just to type that because I kept cracking up!

DS was slowpoking all morning one day and was going to be late for preschool (this was a few weeks ago)... well, I wasn't going to work until later on that day, and so I figured I would shower and brush my teeth once I got home, because there was no way we'd make it on time if I did beforehand. So we get to his school and as I am carrying him into the class, I go to give him a kiss and he scrunches up his face something fierce and screams, "MOMMY! YOU DON'T SMELL GOOD!!!!!"

My Ds at around 3 or so busted out into a song of all kinds of swear words once when my Dad, brother and his girlfriend came to visit.

I once had to go into the mens restroom at a dept store because Ds was needing my help. He swore he only had to pee, but ended up doing more and screaming "Mom, I need you to wipe my butt!" I had no man with me and had to go in. I screamed before I went in that I was coming in (I'd been right outside the door) and just as I entered some guy turned around to face with me with his bits out. I saw that guy everywhere for weeks too. lol

Scenario: DH, DD (nearly 4 at the time), DS (18 months) and I went to South Africa this summer to visit family. We are 19 hours into a 20 flight. HUGE 747 airplane full of people restlessly fidgeting at the end of an extremely long trip. We have started descent and started to hit a few turbulence bumps on the way down. At one point, we hit a pocket and dropped briefly before levelling back out (nothing really new for those who have done a fair amount of air travel).

DH leaned over to DD and asked quietly, "Did you feel that in your stomach when we dropped?" She said, rather loudly, "No! I felt it in my VAGINA!"

Much giggling around us.

My daughter asks me this, too! And then says "Good job!" and claps. She does the good job, at home, too.

My most embarrassing moment was at a ChickFila. My son was potty training but had gone poop in a diaper at the restaraunt because we put him in diapers when we went out. We're horribly scatterbrained and had forgotten the diaper bag so just took the diaper off, cleaned him up and put his shorts back on him. We figured he'd tell us when he had to go again. Well, he is playing on the playground there and all these older kids, maybe 6 and 7 are playing there, too. Suddenly they are all making a commotion at the top of the playstructure. They're exclaiming "There's POOP up here!" and they're all gathered around it pointing at it. One kid comes down and says "That little boy pooped on the playground!" Sure enough, Trevor had pooped again and with no diaper, the poop had just plopped out of his shorts onto the playstructure. I was mortified because these other boys wouldnt leave it alone and their parents had to practically drag them off the equiptment. I told the manager and then this old man janitor guy went in to clean it up. I have not been back to that ChickFila and this was almost 2 yrs ago!

And I think my most humourous one was when Trevor and I were shopping at Whole Foods. We are in line waiting to pay and Trevor like breaks into this Hip hop song and dance routine. He's 4. He loves Beastie Boys, but can't keep up with the lyrics, so when he imitates them he mostly just sings rhyming nonsense words in a hiphoppy/rap type fashion. So we're standing in line and Trevor is dancing and singing very loudly and everyone around us is watching him. Even the cashier near us quit working to watch Trevor. I am trying not to squelch his creativity and so am just letting him be. Finnally I bend down and say quietly "Maybe you might like to sing a little more quietly?" so he stops singing, leans exaustedly against the cart and, in this hugely exaggerated gesture he puts his hand up and brushes "sweat" off his forehead and says "Mommy, that wore me out!" Everyone around us laughed. I wasn't really embarrased, but, well, ok, I was a little!

I have a few, but nothing so mortifying as that.

My dh has his own locksmith security buisness so we get clients coming to the house all the time. One time a security alarm guy is there discusing things with dh and Sarah comes up and says 'You have a large tummy' pause 'Is there a baby in there?'
Then last week we are coming out of a eatery and we see a large woman we know casualy. So imediatly my dd goes up puts her hand flat on this ladies stomach and says 'Do you have a baby in there'?
she is ever hopful sombody will have a baby in there!

As to the public toilet yep she often says loudly 'Mummy your making peepee's?'

My toddler had a diarrhea blowout on the white carpet of someone who invited us for a playdate. Twice. That same day my *four year old* pooped in their swimming pool!! There were bits floating around in the pool!! I had to hose her down on the side of the house. She said she was having too much fun and didn't want to get out to use the bathroom.

This happened when my cousin, who is now 21, was about 3 years old...

We were visiting a pet store that had a display of big cats (tigers, leopard, etc.) in cages outside the store. We were looking at the cats and my cousin was screeching (as only a 3 y.o. girl can) "KITTY KITTY KITTY!" at the top of her lungs. A leopard that was pacing by the front of his cage stopped, looked at her and then SPRAYED HER! She just stood their screaming and getting peed on while the rest of us looked on in shock.

Boy, that was one smelly ride home!

These stories are hillarious!

I once heard that you should tell your children the correct names for everything. And since my kids tend to find all sorts of things in our house, they learned a lot of names. Unfortunately, my son, who was about eighteen months at the time, was terrified of a large, white, noisy, cylinder-shaped heater at a friend's house. When I asked him what was wrong, he said, "Big scary tampon!" To him, that was the shape of the heater. The older kids thought it was hillarious.

Balanced Mama: I've known a few adult men who never outgrew their fear of the scary big white tampon!

My sister and I spend a lot of time together and our children are practically siblings, well her 2.5yr ds was getting his diaper changed and asked if my 2yr dd needed to come watch, his mom politely said "No I don't think Gina needs to watch you get your diaper changed" He quickly replied "Well yesterday she was watching and I think she was looking at my scrotum" LOL!
