What has your child said that was funny or that embarrased you in the past?

Asked by john65pennington (29168points) August 8th, 2010

When our son was born, we knew we were going to have our hands full with his outgoing personality and pranks. from the get-go, he never ceased to amaze us with his antics. when he was 3 years old and in a sitdown drugstore cafe, my son came over and raised my mothers dress and said, “hey mamaw, did you ___? let me see.” totally embarrased my mother. so, what pranks or words, have come from your “little darlin”, that have embarrased you?

Last month while attending a party for my granddaughter, my 3 year old grandson was being introduced to an elderly gentleman. The man bent down to shake his hand and the little guy looked at his hand and started to shake, but…stopped, pulled his hand back and said ” It’s all wrinkled”. The nice old man just laughed as did everyone else at that point.

Many years ago, my ex was arrested for DUI. Needless to say I had to go and get him out in the middle of the night. Had to take my children with me. Of course, the next day it was a topic for my daughter at show and tell. The teacher pulled me aside the next time I saw her, and she let me know that she told that to the entire class. Talk about embarrassing. Now I wish I would have just let him sit in jail until after she went to school.

Did not embarrass me (made me feel bad), but when i was coaching in Memphis years ago, it was almost half time and my son was sitting on the bench with me during the game. He was 3 or 4 years old. He said, “Dad, I’ve got to go to the bathroom!” My reply was, “hold it son, it’s almost half time!” A couple of minutes later, i looked down and he was holding it.

@BoBo1946 I played it off and told her just either saw something similar on TV or she was dreaming. Don’t think she bought it though.


This is funny. When my sister in law was in the 1st grade, she fell and skinned her knee on the playground. She went to the girls bathroom and put a nickle in the Kotex machine. She proceeded to tie the Kotex to her knee and went back to class. She thought it was a big band-aid. Her mother was a 2nd grade teacher at the same school at that time. Stifling their laughter, she was sent to the office where her mother was called in to discuss this with her.:)
