Embarrassing children? Kids can HUMILIATE you!
Anyone who has been through the nightmare of trying to get a child to sleep at night probably adopted habits they never thought they would. I certainly never thought that a waking baby would lead to having embarrassing children.
For me, I always swore that there was no reason to NOT flush the toilet. Water bill be damned, I’d rather have a clean loo that have to wake to a toilet full of wee in the morning.
But then, once a flushing toilet had woken up a newborn who had taken eons to fall asleep, we vowed that we would adopt the old adage “If it’s yellow, let it mellow, if it’s brown, flush it down.”
In other words, if you wee’d in the night, you didn’t flush the loo. Simple.
That is until one day, when Mel was at a certain time of the month and Aaliyah - who could have been no more than four years old at this point - commented quite loudly in front of other parents in the playground on “the new red bleach mummy used down the toilet” which she continued to explain was different in colour to the normal bleach.
I’m glad I hadn’t done the school run that day.
Reminiscing on this, I thought I’d ask on Facebook if anyone else had stories about embarrassing children. I was blown away by the replies, and I’ve featured some below:
There’s been so many that I am going to put up another blog post later in the week.
Thanks to everyone who has shared their embarrassing children stories so far. I’ve really had a giggle putting this together!
