Funny bad parenting moments? Have you had one as a parent? or do you remember one from when you were a kid?
I had one a few months ago, I was at the airport with my 2 year old and we were going thru the metal detectors and baggage screening area, we both had to take our shoes off and I had to take my laptop out the bag to be scanned seperatly and I’m trying to do all of this while holding my kid. When suddenly I hear my last name over the intercom…..and I’m thinking oh thats funny I never hear my last name anywhere…..and then I hear ”....Victoria, your plane has already been boarded…” and telling me I only had a couple minutes to get to my gate or the plane would be leaving without me! I freaked out (I thought I was early but the time on my phone was wrong because of daylight savings), the first thing out of my mouth were “OH F***!” and then my son starts saying “oh f***, oh f***, oh f***......” as he’s jumping around! I looked at the guy in front of me and he starts busting out laughing and then he says “its going to be a long flight for you”. We made it to the plane in time and as we are walking down to our seats with everyone staring at us because were late my kid is still saying “oh f***...” It was funny but I still felt like the worst parent ever! It took over a month to get my kid to stop saying it.
