Have you ever embarassed the heck out of your parents or have your kids embarassed the heck out of you.
I can't believe I am telling you all this but oh well you already know I lived in a car LOL
So when I was little I got into the tissue box. I was having fun pulling out all the tissues till a found a prize at the bottom of the box! You know like in the cereal box! I was so excited but I could not get the wrapper open so I went outside to get my neighbor (a 17 yr old boy) I was like 7 well before I got to him I got it open and it was a balloon!!! I was so excited I ran up to hiom and asked him to blow it up. Then my mom came running after me. I was like look mom I found a balloon!!!!! She took the balloon said sorry to the the boy and took me home. I never understood till years ago when she told me it was a condom!
I was a pretty good child. I did have Ruthie embarrass the heck out of me once or twice. One includes a talkative little girl, a really bad stomach ache, and a nice big crowded public bathroom! Do you understand????
ETA- Guess you found their stash huh?
I thought I would tell you one about my brother. Can you tell I bored.
Well my mom is mexican but my dad is german. So half of us look like me and the other half have red hair and freckles. Everyone thinks we were two familys but no just one. Well my brother is a red head very white skin. We were at at store and my brother wanted a toy well my mom said no so my brother yells at the top of his lungs SHE'S NOT MY MOM! I was little so I don't remember all of it but I do remember my mom pulling out her wallet to some store people. Oh my poor mom LOL
OH Tia, your poor mom.
I honestly can't remember any stories, but I am sure I embarrassed my parents on more than one occasion.
Patrick so far has not embarrassed me, in public, but I will tell you guys this story, because if you have kids who have been through potty training you will understand.
I was sitting on the toilet doing my business and he was sitting on his. Well he didn't go so he stood up as I was standing up. He looks in the our toilet and says "Mommy go pee pee in the potty. Good Job Mommy"
Bathrooms seem to be the common issue here. While at Target the other day I had to stop and pee. It was pretty busy and TJ of course has to start a running commentary. " Mommy go potty. No big brown in pants. Mommy, that your peepee? Mommy little peepee. Ewww! Yuck! Nasty! Wash hands mommy. I help you." You could hear the snickers.
Those are too funny! I can't think of anything in public, but my mom always tells this story and it's cute - My sister and I were sitting at the table talking one day, I was about 5 and my sister was 7 ... my sister said to me that she heard that Santa Claus didn't exist, and neither did the Easter bunny - and did I know that the tooth fairy was really mom and dad? I apparently looked at her with disgust and said "Well I KNOW that's not true! Mom and dad are too cheap to pay us for our teeth, so there MUST be a tooth fairy" ... hehehe
This loses translation without "the voice"... but my brother and I liked to roam Walgreens. My brother would walk up to people and get very close to them and start talking with a weird inflection... "Hi. My name's Bob. Would you be my friend? Etc." I'd then run up and apologize and then chide "Bob" that mom said the nice medicine men were almost ready with his happy pills.
He also liked to kick bumpers as people were backing out and then yell like he was hit by a car. He'd then laugh and laugh and mom would turn purple and drag him to the car vowing to kill him.
I'm not sure I remember ever embarrassing my parents. I was TERRIBLY shy as a young child and never spoke out in stores or at church, or anywhere. So, if anything I embarrassed them for not talking. My 2nd grade teacher called my parents to conference with her b/c she was scared I was mute!! Ha!!! I outgrew that! I talk all the time and have even done some public talks about adoption!
