What is the most humiliating thing your toddler has ever done to embarrass you?

OK... I have I believe the most embarrassing child. I don't know why the things come out of his mouth that do. But I could write a book on the many times I have been red faced walking through a grocery store. For Example. We were in the store one day and my son was making a mess with the animal crackers he was eating for a snack. I told him that if he didn't stop playing and eat that Lion then I would eat it. He got so mad at me and yelled at the top of his lungs "No you can't! Mommies can't eat pussees!" Keep in mind they had just watched Shrek at DayCare and since he couldn't say Puss n' Boots he just always said pussee. Which was no big deal until he screamed it at me in the grocery store. Anyways, my list could go on and on, I'm just wondering what stories you guys have out there!

We haven't had this type of experience yet (our oldest son is Autistic and our youngest is only 14 months old) but I have heard stories. One was a friend of mine told me that she and her son were in the grocery store and he was in the seat in the cart. Apparently she took a corner a little faster and sharper than she thought, she almost hit someone else and was trying to compensate, when he grabbed himself and yelled "Mama! You squished my pee-pee!". She said that she thought she was going to die! lol

That's hilarious. I just brought my son to "The Farm" it is a rustic petting zoo where you can play with goats and cows and other farm animals. Every hour they bring out a momma goat to milk and they let the kids try if they would like. So my son said he would try and he walked up to the goat and the nice man was showing him how to do it. Well my son just stopped, looked really confused. And then he asked the guy "why does that goat have 4 pee-pee's??" I actually yelped I laughed so hard!!! The man explained to him what it was and then looked at me and said, "Don't worry, I've worked here for 23 years. Do you realize how many little boys have asked me that same question?" It was priceless!!

Omg, we were just talking about this last night, my kid was maybe three,we were at a popular visitor's point up on a mountain, they were having the remains of a wedding reception when we came hiking in.I was having a low blood suagr, not in the best mood but we were meeting her other parent there who was coming up on a horse and wasnt there yet,so we were waiting, and my kid said her tummy hurt.Which usually meant she was hungry, so I said we'd leave as soon as we could, and she went and pre-occupied herself ,playing with dandelions.The next thing I hear is.."ahhh it hurts,ahhh,help.." I look over and she's trying to get her sundress over her head and her lil matching bottoms off, because she is pooing..yep..right in the middle of the wedding receptions big picnic blanket.Can we say double maalox moment?They were very understanding thank you God!

Ok...here's my story. My oldest son was potty training and we had bought him "big boy underwear". He was so proud that he had kept himself dry for a whole week and while we were at the checkout, he says to the cashier, "See...my big boy pants!" To demonstrate, he stands up in the cart, turns around, bends over and ment to just pull down his shorts to show her...but accidentally hooked both thumbs into his underwear and mooned her.

If you write the first book, I'll write the sequel! Let's see there was the time in the restarant when I walked out of the restroom and my son yelled across the room to me "Mommy, did you poopy in your pants?" Same son yelling in toy store..."That fat lady has really black skin." (at least we offended only one person with those common toddler discoveries) Same son again, walking by the womens underwear section (maybe he just talks louder than the others did LOL)..."Mommy, you have pretty boobies."...oh yeah and he also walked through a store once SINGING about Mommy wearing undie wears. My oldest daughter once played with my skirt a little too much while I was standing in front of an entire class of male, senior health students...I caught it JUST barely in time. My oldest son told my parents that it wasn't fair that he had to go to bed at 9:00 and that "Mommy and Daddy watch grown up movies"...he actually meant exactly what he said but it got taken wrong. I've actually been relatively lucky so far though...when I was a baby I pulled my mom's tube top down while she was standing in the check-out line of a department store.

That's really funny, my friends daughter was in Walgreens with her and she was buying sanitary napkins as well. Well one of the sales clerks walks up and says hi to the little girl. Well my friends daughter turns around and says hi back to her and then she says Guess What? My mommy has a brown potty! My friend almost fell over she was so embarassed!!! I just laughed because my son has done this to me so many times it was nice to have her emabarassed by her "perfect" little angel!

The one that sticks out uppermost in my mind would be when my daughter was younger and went out to play with some of the neighbor hood children that were at our house because I was watching them that day . I looked outside my window to find my daughter what was a little over two at the time , mooning all the cars that were going by . The older boys thought it would be cute to have her do this . I was horrified , embarrasses and angry that they had taught her such a thing and then after that she couldn't figure out why I was upset over it and thought it was funny .

Oh my god! Oh my oh my oh my! I am so sorry! I am also laughing and I think the tears will be coming soon! Kids are just so priceless, aren't they? Don't worry, you will get your revenge on him when he starts bringing girlfriends home. Mine have said and done a lot but I always like it best when they embarass my husband's mother in public. I guess one day when the little one was at the grocery store with her, some other shopper was staring at him. Or so he thought. He shouted at her, "Quit looking at me, Henhead!" Another time he was returning home on foot with my husband and a group of little old ladies was hanging about after a bingo game or something, saying their goodbyes. Apparently he said something like, "Disgraceful, standing around streetcorners getting drunk like teenagers" And of course he said it loudly. Oh, the joys!

I can't think of anything in particular since my kids are now grown, but I do remember a curse word or two slipping out in a public place and my husband giving me the evil eye because, of course, they probably learned them from me.

When my son was right about 3 and was potty trained except for doing the doo doo on the potty. Well anyway we were in walmart one day looking at shoes, and there was another lady there looking at shoes. Well my son for some unknown reason says to this lady Hi, and she said hi, and then he said you know what, and she said what, and he said my mommy poops on the potty. I couldnt believe it, and she said oh how nice, do you poop on the potty at which he informed her that no that was gross and he had no intentions of doing so. I was just slightly pink cheeked.
