Most proud moment/most humiliating moment...

Sorry gotta get a bunch of posts in today since I probably won't be "hanging" out much on here while my sister and family are here (should arrive around 5pm today!!! Very happy )

Anyway just curious about a proud moment and an embarrasing moment that stands out as far as something your child/children have done...

Embarassing moment: when Aaralyn was about 2 1/2 we were standing in line at the bank and there was a very dark skinned man standing in front of us. All the sudden Aaralyn speaks loudly and says "mommy, look at that big monkey"... now keep in mind, my daughter is bi-racial, so it's not like she's never seen a dark skinned person before Suspect . I was mortified, as the guy heard what she said... what the heck was I to say to that?! He just smiled and I hope only thought "outta the mouths of babes". I was telling her nursery school teacher about it (who is african american) to see how it would have made her feel (her and I became good friends too so I was comfortable asking her), she showed me a mask that Aaralyn loved to play with of an ape face and it was the same color as the man's skin, so her teacher probably thought at her age she associated him with the mask. It was still soooooo embarrasing!!

Proudest moment: again we were waiting in line somewhere and a lady in front of us had large birth marks all over her skin and Aaralyn at this time around 3 yo said to the lady, why is your skin all dirty (OH NO, I'm thinking another embarrasing moment) the lady smiled and said that it's not dirt my skin is just different than other people's. Now I have talked with Aaralyn since the day she could understand words about how everyone looks different and there's always something different that makes a person stand out and be beautiful... so, Aaralyn looks up at the lady and says "lady, I think your skin is beautiful" Love I melted, and the lady said to Aaralyn that that was the sweetest thing anyone had ever said to her Very happy

nothing really springs to mind with my kids. theres loads of proud moments, especially when ben said 'mummy'. he has a development relay and thats was great when he finally said that

the most embarrassing moment was jami introducing her uncle to a shop assistant. she said
'This is my uncle and he has a penis' lolol Embarassed

Millie is not yet big enough to embarass me! Watch this space as I am sure once she is talking she will probably manage it every day!

I'm looking forward to the stories! She's big enough to fart in the grocery store really loudly and have everyone looking at you! LOL, Aaralyn did that to me when she was about Millie's age. Embarrasing (and of course more proud) moments to come for you Bedhead!

Yesterday we went to our local mother and baby group and she spent the whole time we were there making a bee line for everbody's handbags and trying to take their credit cards out of their purses Tounge Out It looked like I had trained her to do it Very happy People must think I am training her early for a life of crime Wink

I'm sat here thinking and racking my brains...the most embarrassing thing I can think of with Charlotte is when we were at the park and she sat on the see-saw and another little girl came and sat on the other side. This little girls dad came over and moved the see-saw up and down for them but unfortunately it was squeaking loads. So Charlotte says 'Mummy the see-saw is farting' Shocked Embarassed

The proudest moment with Charlotte, gosh I think there are so many, recently it has been how well she has settled into nursery and the bundles of confidence she seems to have Love

With George he hasn't seemed to have embarrassed me yet too much although we once went out for a meal and he decided he would have the noisiest poo ever! He had a red face and everything, the couple on the table next to us were in hysterics!

LMAO about both of those stories. I'm glad Charlotte loves nursery too! Hopefully if I get this job, Aaralyn will be back in preschool too!

Embarassed OH where do i start!!!!!!!!!!

The funniest incident was last christmas eve.We went to a very expensive resturaunt for my husbands uncles 70th birthday.There were probably about 15 of us and the place was pretty buisy but quiet in mood (lots of couples).My LO was standing behind a waitress who was bending over.He grabbed her bottom "very firmly" he then looked at us all and had a giggling fit.SOOOOO everyone at our table started laughing to "very loud" I then grabed him and said sweety you can't do things like that its rude.He then told everyone at the table but thats what daddy does to mummy all the time! i was so Embarassed

The nicest thing he has done is crawl under a ladys car when she dropped her keys(car wasn"t on)in the car park.She then dropped her purse and he collected everything up for her gave it all back and gave her a hug.He then told her she looked like his nanna she said it made her day as she is a great- grandmother.

One of my best friends (female) is very masculine in dress sense, mannerisms, short hair,no make-up etc (yes she is stereo-typical gay woman). Any way something that was SO embarressing was when my DD used to think she was a bloke and call her "him" and "he"
