Midweek Confession

Heather says:

Confessing is good for the soul, today we’re dishing on our little embarassments.

I do love traveling, even with my kids. However, I do not enjoy the embarrassing moments that occur. Yesterday, my five year old shouted at a man in his early thirties, “Hey old man, get out of the way.” 

My mother is spending part of the week with us and we visited Target to purchase a few necessities, namely caffeine. I picked up some coffee and asked her in an offhand manner, “Hey, do you like hazelnut? [Mr. Heather] won’t let me get it.” The attractive man walking past laughingly tsk’d tsk’d and called me out on my comment. I wanted to sink into the floor or at least hide under the cart. My mom knows my husband is not the controlling type. I usually don’t splurge on a fancy flavors only I would drink and was looking for a good excuse. (The coffee is fantastic, btw).

Today I get to discover just how patient the customer service department is here at the hotel. My oldest has locked several things in the inroom safe. I sincerely hope there is a master key or code available.

Now, it’s your turn. Spill some of the little things that have made you want to hide.

    Where does a strange man get off telling a married woman about her relationship with her husband?

    My confession – we were supposed to go grocery shopping as a family (husband wanted to get some ingredients for something or other that he makes) last Monday and I was secretly glad that three of the children were so naughty between husband getting home from work and getting in the car that we canceled the trip.

    Please, please let me just buy food by myself! It’s easier for everyone involved.

    Heather, your comment wasn’t untoward, even if it had been true. Tsk-ing a stranger in passing is bad manners, period, regardless of whether he was good looking or not. You deserve a little treat every now and again; I’m glad you’re enjoying the coffee.

    The most embarrassing thing that ever happened to me with my son was when he was eight years old and somehow managed to poop in the pool at my then-significant other’s mom’s house. And he wasn’t having digestive upsets, either, apparently it was just some freak thing – it never happened before or after. She never forgave me for that…as if I should have had control over his bowels?!

    My mom telling her entire Sunday School class at a luncheon once that two children are plenty for anyone. I was currently greatly pregnant with her third grand child.

    Need I say more.

    My 3 year old says she has to go “poopy on the potty seat” even when she only has to go #1. The act of going potty is “poopy on the potty seat”. It mortifies me when she announces this to everyone she sees when we are out and about (mall, Babies R Us, Target, Post Office, UPS Store, etc…..)

    My 4 year old calls a spade a spade and also loves to share her observations with everyone, loudly, when we are out and about (People’s size, if the smell bad, if they wear too much perfume, if they are driving too fast, etc.)

    Finally….my youngest stepson (8) is always being asked “Hey K, is this your mom?” by his friends. To which he replies, “who Becca? No way….she’s just my stepmom”. (A real ego booster….JUST being a stepmom.) Luckily, I have accepted being the step-Becca and let the boys each tell their friends whatever they want. The older two boys will just say I am their mom if the situation doesn’t require explanation…and that does make me feel good. (Being the “step” often conjures up images of warts, pointy witch shoes and an evil cackle, no?)

    Kids are too much! Good luck on the safe…I used to work in hotel management and this happens more than you think. I am betting someone from engineering was able to pop it right on open for you, there should be a master code for that sucker!
