Have you wanted to crawl into a hole during an embarrassing mom moment? Becoming a mom has meant those embarrassing moments have multiplied. My kids say "I'm in charge of my own body" so who knows what'll happen next. You never know (you could say that's a great thing about having kids - life becomes more unpredictable).
We asked our Mighty Mamas to share their thoughts and here is what they said.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING MOM MOMENT?
"I would have to say my most embarrassing mom moment was when I was in a busy grocery store with my daughter. I was holding her in a baby carrier that is also attached to me. I was checking out, and I heard a sound all too familiar to me. She had the biggest blowout I had ever seen. All over me, her, and the grocery store floor. The customers behind me were appalled. I was so embarrassed, but I just had to laugh!"
"Not long ago my 4yo wouldn't listen to me when it was time to walk home from our friend's house. He kept running away so finally to get him I had to chase him, grab him, and carry him back to our house. While pushing my other son in a stroller. And all of our neighbors were watching. I know they all understood but I couldn't get home fast enough."
"It takes a lot to embarrass me. When you have multiples you tend to overlook a lot of things just so you don’t end up adding something else to the everyday challenges. With that being said, my kids are funny. They say and do the funniest things. Jase wants me to take him to the bathroom, but if he has to do #2 he tells me to get out because he’s going to “make it stink in here.” Henley is obsessed with my boobs and asks to see my nipples on a daily basis. I’m not even sure how she knows what nipples are. Speaking of nipples, Sadie has a dimple in her cheek that you can only see when she gives her famous stink eye. More than once she has gave the stink eye and asked if we can see her nipple! In public. Loudly. Haha! From the mouths of babes…"
"I was at a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Group in the States. My infant son was sitting in his carseat on the floor next to me. I had on a pair of slightly heeled boots. I tried to step over the carseat, but I didn't make it. Instead of stepping on him, I crashed to the floor. Every mom in the room immediately stopped what they were doing, looked at me and gasped! My friend looked at me and asked if I was okay. I told her if she would just laugh that would make me feel better! Haha!"
"Luckily it happened at home, but I remember towards the end of pregnancy I still had "morning sickness". And on one particular morning, as I was crouched over the toilet throwing up I also managed to pee myself. I never imagined that, at almost 30 years old, I would ever experience throwing up while simultaneously peeing my pants!"
"In order to save time in the mornings (sleep is scarce!) I used to pump during my train commute to work under a big scarf. Usually, people around me were busy sleeping or working so I always hoped they wouldn´t notice the movement under the scarf. One day I realized at some point that the people in the row across the aisle were looking very weird to me and due to the nerves from that I apparently didn´t close the milk container well. When I arrived to work I had all these white spots on my black boots... all the milk had spread through my backpack and leaked through it."
