My Princess and Birdie have bestowed more than my share of these frozen moments on me over the years, and they don't get any less awkward as the years go by. I do have to say that time does make them funnier, however-- you know, like how you laugh hysterically right after narrowly avoiding death, that kind of funny. Some of my very "favorites" have been:
- the time Princess fondled a complete stranger's breast and then informed her she had "Nice boobs, lady!" (Princess was very young, as if that were an excuse!)
- the time Princess drew all over her bedroom door with a ballpoint pen. When I asked her if she wrote on the door with a ballpoint pen she said, "No, Mommy. I wrote on the door with the Tweety Bird pen I took from your desk. There is no ball on it." (This is one that Princess should probably laugh about, because I damn near killed her that day.)
- recently, when we made a "friend" at the Redbox machine. Click here to see that story.
- the time Birdie wet her pants at a restaurant. Doesn't sound like a big deal, huh? Well, she went to the bathroom all by herself (she was a big girl in Kindergarten, after all, and the restaurant practically empty) and was gone a really, reeeeeeally long time. I went into the ladies room to check on her, and much to my dismay, found her standing at the sink, completely naked from the waist down, rinsing out her pee-pee pants. Even worse, her naked ass was 100% visible from the restroom door. I can still remember that she was wearing bright pink Hello Kitty socks and had a bruise on her left butt cheek. Worst. restaurant memory. ever.
I have plenty of others, and I am sure one day I will write a blogpost about each and every one-- someday.
What I would like to know is, what are some of your frozen moments?
Tell me about a time when your little angel(s) made you...hmmm, how should I put it?... uncomfortable, for lack of a better word.
This should be good. :) Parents (and teachers) have the best stories!
