Aloha Friday!


What embarrassing statements have your children made to strangers, or relatives for that matter, right in front of you?



Here's why I ask. Benji keeps embarrassing me in public. Not by doing anything really wrong, just stating the obvious. Here are a few examples:

1. An very large woman walked into the ladies lounge. Benji sees her and exclaims "Whoa that's a big one!"

2. Walking through Costco Benji jumped in front of an older gentleman and held out his hand in the stop sign hand gesture. Then he said, "You stop right there, OLD MAN, you stop!"

Thankfully for me, with his speech problems sometimes people have no idea what he's saying. Unfortunately, I am not sure if people did or did not know what he was saying.

So, here's my question:

What embarrassing statements have your children made to strangers, or even relatives, in front of you?

When my daughter was around 2, she said "that thing is huge" referring to the woman with the enormous behind walking past us at a resort pool.

Oh my! Kids say what is on their mind. Mine have made many comments, especially repeating things I have said. Lesson learned don't say things in front of children, if you don't want it broadcasted.

During my brother's wedding a few years ago my son was newly potty trained. He was in the wedding. Suddenly you heard his loud booming voice announce (in the middle of the ceremony) "I have to go potty" Hubby took him and then they came back. Moments later he said the same thing. I was ready to scream and die of embarrassment. Thankfully the rabbi made a cute joke about things into the ceremony.

My son smelled something bad and said, loudly, "Ok, who tooted!?" Wouldn't have been too bad if we weren't in a waiting room at the doctors. No where for me to run and hide...
