Aloha Friday - Most Embarrassing

Hello Everyone,



In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

They are adorable. We love them. They say the cutest things. They do the cutest things. My question today is:

Has your child ever embarrassed you in public? Do tell!

My answer:

Since I am a grandmother now I am sure I will have more embarrassing moments with my grandchildren. My daughter Summer was usually very well behaved. But she was taught by me to speak her mind, be honest and to tell the truth. When she was young after church one day, we were talking to our preacher Brother Robert. Now Brother Robert was a great preacher we also have family ties on Summer's side (his daughter is Summer's aunt). Well while we were talking I said I better go my back and feet are killing me. Then my beautiful daughter saids "It's probably because she's got her period." Was my face red!

So click on the picture and head over to An Island Girl and see what all the other participates are asking today. Until next time

Have a blessed day!

Yes, all of my children and probably more times than I can remember :D

One in particular was when my oldest went through a growling phase. He used to growl a people in the grocery store...lovely behavior. Glad we made it past that one.

LOL! I don't know any mom who hasn't been embarrassed at some point. My daughter use to (around age 4) fall out in the aisle of the grocery store and scream bloody murder if she couldn't get what she wanted.

She's SO lucky I'm afraid of prison. :)

No kids yet but I never much embarrassed my mom. She taught me from a young age what was and wasn't okay to do/say in public.

My oldest when he was little we were in the Dr.office and man talked to him and my baby said where are you teeth I almost feel out of my chair. We had a long talk after that.

Oh, my, when haven't they done something?! No, they're pretty good although when my son was about 18 months he threw a sippy cup @ me & it hit me in the eye. That made me fall down the stairs that I was standing on. Going out in public was awful & not the least because we lived on a military base. I was actually asked if my Hubby was abusing me! Hubby, on the other hand, was not amused. lol

Not too much yet, but my daughter has asked me to show her my "boobies" a couple times in public. Naturally, I declined.

LOL It would be easier to list when they didn't - no, just kidding and never on anything all that memorable.

Once my child threw a tantrum in Wal-mart. It was very embarassing. Everyone looks at you like it is your fault but you can't even do anything about it, especially if you are in the check-out line.

Laura said...

So far, not too much. One day we were walking behind an older gentlemen that walked slow and my oldest kept asking over and over again really loud why he was walking so slow.

My daughter has thrown quite a few fits in the grocery store. Lucky for us though we usually shop as a family so I have my husband take her out to the car while I finish the shopping. I hate to subject total strangers to her nasty attitude! lol

Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for visiting my blog!

Ooops last time u announce that one to the kids.

We were in a currency exchange waiting in line when this larger women walked in. My daughter turns to me and says, "Is that why I can't drink soda?"
Gulp. Oh my

Vicki said...

I can't remember them ever embarrassing me, but I'm sure they must have!

MamaJoss said...

Oh like you mean when my toddler was yelling "FOCK" "FOCK" "FOCK" at me in the middle of Friendly's last week -- asking for a "FORK" - yeah I got a few looks.

Yes! I was 39 weeks pregnant with my youngest. I felt like I was going to burst! We were at the House of Blues, eating a nice dinner and dessert. I had to go pee really bad. I took my oldest daughter with me. There were no paper liners for the seats, so big, preggo me was squatting and my daughter decided to open the stall door. At that very moment, three ladies walked in the bathroom and our eyes met. It was embarrassing.

ParentingPink said...

YES!!!!! Tantrums and trying to take their clothes off are my youngest favorite pastimes!

Heart of Rachel said...

Oh my, kids can be so candid with their remarks sometimes without really meaning to be offensive.

When my son was around 4 years old, we dropped by the house of hubby's friend. My son asked why their house was old and unpainted. It was an innocent question but I felt so embarrassed. Thankfully, hubby's friend just laughed about it.

Jinxy said...

My daughter is only 5 months old so the most embarrassing thing she does is cry in the store.
I'm sure there will be much worse things in my future.

All of the time!

The most recent was yesterday. The Firefighters carry stickers and plastic hats in their trucks to give to kids when they are out and about. We saw some yesterday walking into a restaurant, and Mason was excited to go say hi. One Fireman gave him a sticker (the hats were in the truck across the parking lot) and my husband told him to say thank you. Instead of a thank you, he said he wanted a hat! He is only 3 years old, but I was pretty embarrassed.

Okay, I thought of a better one!

We were in a maternity store as I was searching for a nursing bra. I had the baby strapped into the baby bjorn, and I had to take him out to get measured. As I was trying to give him to my husband, Mason disappeared and I hear "Hi there!" from a woman in the dressing room next to us. Mason had snuck into it with her. All I could do was stand there until she let him out. Luckily she was fully dressed at that moment, but my husband couldn't take the kids out of there fast enough!
