    We were toilet shopping at a local hardware store,  they had floor model toilets all over ground level on the floor. My kids were running around the aisle while we were talking about low flush toilets (this is when they were fairly new) my daughter ran around to me and yelled that her I didn't have to worry about taking my little guy to the washroom he took care of himself.  Yes he used a floor model toilet.  The sales person was mortified I had to remind him my son was not even 3 yet. It was very hard to not burst out laughing.  I happily offered to help, needless to say we didn't buy a toilet that night and we never went back to that particular store.

    I was placing my order at a Starbucks counter and when I noticed my son was no longer at my side (he was 2 or 3), I looked around and saw him licking the display window (where they keep the muffins, etc)!

    When my son was a toddler, he used to fight me tooth and nail when it came to putting on pants. One day, after a particularly frustrating time of me getting his pants half on, then him kicking them off again, I muttered under my breath, "Nigel! Just get your fu$&ing pants on!" Fast forward a few days later - we were at a moms and tots group where I knew no one. The kids were running around in their underwear as it was very hot that day, and my son decides he wants to put his pants back on...he grabs them, and at the top of his lungs yells, "Look Mummy! I'm putting my fu$&ing pants on!!!"

    In a hurry dressing 3 kids under the age of 3 for doctors , I have put my daughters dress backward without even noticing, until in the waiting room and other mothers started to smile at me.

    When my daughter was younger.  She saw two teenagers kissing.  Then she said very loudly, MOM, they are kissing.

    Picture this: Hubby and I are first time parents and we take our 24 hour old newborn back to the hospital for his first follow up. The nurse is running through all the standard questions: Is he eating? Sure is I answer as I beam with my proud new mama glow! Is he urinating? Yup I say. How about a bowel movement? Hum...nope haven't seen one of those yet. Well, she says, if he hasn't gone yet I think we should try a rectal suppository. Oh...well...I guess...I stutter. She opens his diaper to have a look and just that very if it was in a movie or my son was going for baby comedian of the year it happened. I mean it went EVERYWHERE...on her uniform, her clipboard, the table, his clothes, his feet...I WANTED TO     D-I-E! Of course, it's a story we laugh about now but talk about EMBARRASSED! 18 months later and Hubby is still laughing about it! I can just imagine what was going through my sons head. What? Suppository? Rectal? NO THANK YOU! Your wish is my command! Here-YA-go!     Not sure how we'll top this one but with the recent arrival of our second little guy I have a feeling there'll be many more embarrassing stories in my future! Thank you for all you do and an incredible Christmas In July Giveaway Bargain Moose! Good luck all!

    When my daughter was around 2yrs old she proudly came out of her room showing me that she had dressed herself. So off to the grocery store we went. It was when I went to put her in the front of the shopping cart that I noticed she had forgot her underwear. 

    Fastest pair of new underwear she ever got.

    While pregnant with my second child, we were at an annual pancake breakfast in our local park, that hundreds of people attend.  I suddenly couldn't find my oldest daughter, aged 2, and completely panicked, and ran around looking for her in the crowds.  I found my husband and our friends, and crying hysterically, told them I couldn't find our daughter.  They all just stood there looking at me strangely, and then I was crying harder, asking why they weren't doing anything, when my husband quietly said, "Babe.  Look down."  I had her on my hip the whole time.  Gotta love hormone-induced pregnancy brain.

    I was at Wal-Mart shortly after the birth of my son getting some nursing pads. I ran into an old friend who just happened to be working in that department. We got to talking for a bit then I got my stuff and headed to the check out. Needless to say this was in June and I had on a pastel coloured tee. Buy the time I got back to the car and flipped the visor down there were two very large wet spots on my chest. I asked my husband how long they're been there and he says shortly after we arrived. I asked (screeched) why he didn't say something. Eternal man logic "so your shirts dirty who cares". TYPICAL

    my eldest went through a stage when she was 2 that all she talked about was men's private parts. Needless to say it was embarrassing when we went out to eat one night and she told the waitress that was what she wanted to order

  • ABMom

    When my son was not quite 3, I took him to get his flu vaccine at one of those community immunization clinics in a gym. There were many stations with a nurse at each one. He was in good spirits and smiling at our nurse right up until the needle went in; at that point, in his loudest voice so the whole gym could hear, he announced, "SHE'S A POOPY HEAD!!!" All the other nurses were laughing, except for ours.

  • larlyn

    standing in line at the cashier of a grocery store with a "screaming" toddler is really embarrassing. 

  • cottagebunny

    I remember one day when my little guy wasabout two and s half  the Avon lady
    came to the door
    with a delivery. I welcomed her in and she took a seat at my dining room table.My son crawled up on a chair across from her and she gave him a big cheery smile and said "oh
    you look so cute today".He looked at her and said "I like your pretty dress and look it's the same color as your teeth." You guessed it!! Her dress was yellow.I could have sunk right through the floor.Talk about embarrassing but when I looked over at him to see if he was being mean for whatever reason,he just had the look of  baby innocence on his face.Sometimes out of the mouths of babes comes, you know, the truth.

    Temper tantrums in public are really embarrassing!

  • NenaS

    My sons are 11 1/2 months apart. When they were babies, my husband and I took them grocery shopping. At the time, the oldest one was 14 months and the youngest 2 months old. The older one had a meltdown because he wanted something at the store and we said "No". My husband took the older son out to calm him down. I continued to shop with the younger one. A lad approached me and complimented me on how sweet my baby was. Then she added "Aren't you happy you don't have one like that??" (Meaning my older son!) I laughed and told her "Well, that one is also mine!" The look on her face...priceless! :)

    One time I wore a brand new black and white blouse when I picked my daughter up from Kindergarten. Her whole class was lined-up outside and her teacher was standing beside my daughter just waiting to release the children to their parents. Right at that moment, my daughter saw me and blurted out: "Mommy, why are you wearing your pajamas?"... I wasn't, but she couldn't tell the difference as my pajamas are also black and white!

  • kam77

    Most embarrassing moment as a parent had to be when we were travelling in Japan. We were at a supermarket and our little one was in a stroller. I felt something was a little strange but couldn't put my finger on it...until I smelled something unpleasant. When I looked down, I realized our little one had pooped and it had leaked out of her diaper...ugh! We quickly took her into the bathroom and cleaned her up...and cleaned up the stroller as best as we could, and then put it the fabric part through the wash once we got home. The only thing I'm thankful for is that poop didn't end up all over the floor in the supermarket..."Clean up in aisle 8...we've got leaky poop!"

  • mike_k

    i dont have kids but i found this one on the internet that made me laugh. My daughter is 8 now, but when she was 2, I taught her to say behold
    instead of look
    . We'd be at the store or something and she'd go to point out whatever damn thing she saw, 'Daddy, behold!'

    Went to visit my friends with a giant hickey on the case of my neck. They teased me because thought it was from my husband but actually it was from my almost 4 month old teething daughter.

    My most embarrassing moment with my son is when he was a toddler and would replace all of his "tr"s with "f"s. He had a huge obsession at the same time with trucks...So anytime we would be out in public and he would see a truck...he would get excited and yell "F*CK! F*CK!" over and over LOL. Lots of heads would turn. 

  • julielaura1

    My eldest asked me in a loud voice why the lady leaning over the freezer had no knickers on, I grabbed her and almost ran to another part of the store, lol!

  • Scatris

    I was at the food court with my 1 1/2 year old son ordering food. I sat him on the table area where you wait for you food. I started hearing something like running water and I feel my feet are all wet. I'm wondering where is all this water coming from? I take my son off the table and I look and he had peed all over the table and the floor! There was pee everywhere!

  • luv2shp

    I had to take my son to an eye specialist when he was young which involved alot of poking and prodding by the doctor. My little guy screamed the whole time and was terrified by all the machines. Once the whole ordeal was done, I thanked the doctor and turned to my son and said "please say thank you before we leave". He quickly replied very loudly, "Why should I thank him, he nearly killed me!" Talk about embarassing!

    When my youngest was a preschooler she discovered that the Golden Arches meant a fun time and a toy at the end. Unfortunately we drove by one on our way home just about everyday. One day she had a full on fit because she wanted us to stop at get her a burger for dinner. I refused to stop and for about 5 minutes she gradually worked herself up to a hysterical tantrum. by the time we got home she threw herself on our front lawn screaming that she was hungry and just wanted a burger. I proceeded to carry my things to the front door, ignoring her but when i turned around there were neighbours walking their dogs, cleaning their yards, etc who had all stopped to see how we starve and torture our children. she still hadn't stopped so I just picked her up in a barrell hold and carried her in. Quite embarrassing!

  • xenaspal

    I breastfed my daughter until she was nearly three- although at that point it was sporadic and comfort-based.  I was at that point leading music in my church.  In the middle of the service, when I was standing before the congregation she stood in the pews and ran to the front crying "Mommy,milk!!"  Needless to say she was shortly weaned.

    My daughter was being toilet trained and when I had company she peed all over the floor. There I was, on the floor cleaning up pee. While my visitors ate supper. 

  • cparsons79

Shes 5 years old by the way, so she looks at me and says just like you eh mom! omg i laughed so hard i had tears in my eyes

  • Kellybee

    Commented yesterday, but I don't see it...I subscribed.  Most embarrassing mom moment:

    I was about six months pregnant with my second, and hubby, eldest daughter, some friends and I were at an annual pancake breakfast in our community park that has hundreds of people attend.  Suddenly, I couldn't find my daughter and began calling her and searching the crowds frantically for her.  I couldn't find her, but found hubby and friends, and crying hysterically, told them I'd lost her.  They all just stood there looking at me strangely, and when I got more upset because they didn't seem to be panicking like I was, my husband finally quietly said, "Babe.  Look down."  I had been holding her on my hip the whole time.  Thank you hormones for pregnancy brain!!

  • nana_sharron

    I have twins and when they were younger every outing was always quite the experience. Once while at a restaurant they both became very sick at the exact same time. Crying and throwing up. I felt all eyes on me and I couldn't get out of there fast enough. I felt the worst for our waitress. That poor girl helped me clean up the mess without blinking an eye. She told me she had a little brother at home and understood. Needless to say, I tipped her very well for her help and shot out of there like a cannon. Subscribed and followed. Many thanks!

  • dreamcatcher692

  • SuzanneS

    everyone was helping my daughter with moving from diapers by complimenting her o  her new pretty big girl underwear.

    One day, while we used  a stall in a very crowded Women's washroom, she pipes up

    Oh mummy! I like your pretty panties! 

    Returning the compliment she was being given repeatedly!

  • andreaca

    When my oldest son was about 2 he used to like to tell everyone we passed all about his penis. It was pretty embarrassing at the time, but a funny story now that he's almost 22. 

  • wittylynnie60

    Nothing more embarrassing than a child throwing themselves on the floor and having a fit in a store(my daughter) and now my ( grand daughter) and you can't pick them up off the floor because child is struggling, pretty difficult as a grandmother, so even more embarrassing.......

  • Osita

    Standing in line to vote, and my youngest in my arms reaches in my shirt and pulls out a boob. 'nough said.

  • blondie25

    Well I've had a couple of really embarrassing moments with my boys.   Most recently I was at the supermarket and while the cashier was passing through the items I started to smell something really funky.   I knew it had to be coming from my little guys bum.   I took him to the car and decided to change him in the front seat.   Little did I know what a mess it was going to be.   The people who were parked beside me were in their car and the look of horror when I turned around I will never forget.   A little embarrassing but poop happens!......literally! :)

  • meilingliu

    our family went to shopping mall, i bought shoes for my son, when i want to pay, i found that i forgot to bring my purse,i have not choice but put them back but my son cried loudly and yelled that i want the shoes now, many people are looking at me, very embrassing that time

  • MistyMom

    My son was about 5 at the time.  He had seen a movie poster of a woman bent over, which made her behind look larger.  A few months later, we were at the bank and there was a plus size woman there.  He said" look Mommy, that woman is big like the one on the poster"..  I wished a hole would have appeared to swallow me up.

    When my daughter lost her first tooth, she was SO excited for the tooth fairy to come! carefully wrapping her tooth in kleenex and placing it under her pillow, she could hardly wait for morning to come.  In the morning, she came downstairs in tears because her tooth was still there and the tooth fairy did not leave her anything (because the tooth fairy forgot!). So, I simply told her that  perhaps the tooth fairy did not see her tooth and we'd try again the next night. You guessed it, didn't the too fairy forget AGAIN the next night? I assured her through tears again that the tooth fairy perhaps was so busy that she didn't have a change to visit. On the third night, the tooth fairy did finally come TWICE (my husband also go in on the action in case, you

    I'm a pet parent & one of the most embarrassing things that happened was I forgot to vacuum the couch before a guest came over & of course when she got up from the couch her back was covered in cat fur. I had to use a sticky brush to get all the fur off her black top. Meanwhile the cat was there looking at us & just innocently licking his paw.

    My most embarrassing story of being a parent is that I'm almost 40 and I'm still not a parent. I do love Amazon though! ;)

    When my daughter was about two I had her in my arms on a crowded elevator.  We lived in an apartment and we're going outside to enjoy the nice weather.  When I reached over to push the elevator button she grabbed the top of my halter top and yanked it down.  While I was desperately trying to pull it up she had it tightly wrapped in her tiny fists and was laughing.  The people on the elevator got quite the show that day!!

  • Noahsmum

    My son likes to identify himself as a boy and I teach him the proper name of his parts.  One day while shopping at Costco he says that one is a boy and this one is a boy.  Mommy do you have a penis?  No you're not a boy.  Points to the cashiers and says they have penises.  Proceeds to put his hand down his pants while standing in the cart and waves goodbye with his other hand.  The cashier was giggling 

  • TreenGoodwin

      We were heading to a family function and as I was holding my son I could feel something wet and warm.  I took him to the washroom to find out that I did not put a diaper on him... i just  put jeans on him... How the heck could I forget.  ahahah 

  • mithalou

    Well, Im not a parent, but I am an aunt and I had my nephew out with me one day and although I spend a lot of time with him, I didn't know if he could go to the washroom on his own while I stood outside stall or if he needed me and it was a bit awkward. Learning the ropes of a 4 year old!

  • Amazmie

    I had to work, so I met my family at the campground where we were staying for the weekend.  When I got there, I saw something hanging out of my son's pants.  As I got closer, I saw that it was a pair of my underwear, which he was wearing UNDER his own underwear.

  • Tammiko

    My son tried to explain to me in a very reasonable way, with an extremely patronizing voice, that he only has to wash one hand - while we were in the bathroom at Eaton's because that was all he used to go pee-pee.  The elderly lady next to us actually sniffed and walked away with her head in the air like someone from an old movie.

  • tperron

    When my one son was about 3 he was potty trained, we were in a restaurant he got up and started to takes his pants off and yelled I gotta go pee. As I went to pick him up he bolted and ran to the bathroom with his pants down.

  • Dream24

    one summer we were out for a stroll. I went to change his diaper (he was less than a year old), opened up his diaper and wouldn't you know it, he peed right into his mouth. our friends had a good laugh while I quickly cleaned away the mess.

  • MillerKrazy

    When my son was small, he was absolutely petrified of Dora the Explorer to the point he would try to scratch out his own eyes so he wouldn't have to see her.  And to make it worse, everywhere we'd go we'd see Dora toys, her show playing on TV's in stores, etc.  One day at the amusement park we played a game & the attendant handed my son a prize-- a plush Dora doll.  My son screamed bloody murder, threw the doll at the guy & ran around terrorized crying & shrieking.  Everyone was staring at us like what the heck is so scary about Dora. It was a little humiliating but kinda funny too.
