There are many moments in life when I am utterly proud of my son and many moments when I am so much in love with him and his adorable questions. But then there are those moments that are so cringeworthy that my face turns a crimson red, I wince from top to bottom and wish I could hide underground until the moment has passed. One such incident in the past week prompted me to consider that as a topic for my Top 10 feature, given that I can easily fill 10 moments!
As embarrassing as these moments are, they are hilarious too. So this week Top 10 feature is dedicated to my little boy and the hilarious moments that he and I shared!
I hope you enjoy and have a good laugh over this list! I do have to warn you though; there may be a high possibility of spraying if you are planning to drink something while reading this list! 😀
- Fitness Freak!
This incident happened last year when I met my son’s Gymnastics teacher. He had given him a low score and we were discussing on how to improve my son’s physical strength and fitness. Suddenly, my son butt into the conversation and said “It’s not my fault! Look at my mom, she is not fit. I am just like her!” And he continues “Mom, you need to lose weight first!” I turned red, did not know what to say. The look on the teacher’s face made it all the more worse, it was like he agreed with my son! All I could think in my head was “Somebody just kill me NOW!”
- It’s the Diarrhea!
This was the incident that I mentioned in the beginning of the post; it transpired a couple of weeks back. My son had a bad case of constipation and I took him to a pediatric urologist to test the frequent occurrence. Before the Doctor came in to see us, his intern (a really cute young doctor) walked in to take down my son’s medical history. He asked my son to describe his symptoms and the first thing he said was “I don’t have any problems! Its mom, she has diarrhea from last night!” My son had overheard me complain of an upset stomach to my sister. For him upset stomach = diarrhea! The young doctor looked at me and started laughing and gave my son a hi-five while I stood there red-faced burying my head into my hands!
- You Ate Me!?!
One day my son was as usual busy asking me a number of questions, when he suddenly asked me where he was before he was born! I thought of making him feel safe and said he was in my tummy. My son had a horrified look on his face and asked me “Mom, You ate me? How could you eat me?” before he burst into tears! The look on his face at that time was to die for!
- Paycheck please!
When my son was around 4 years old, he had this funny habit of picking up something for himself from every store we went to whether it was something he wanted or not! So I decided to teach him a bit about the value of money and told him that we can spend only after I get my pay check. He literally took that advice to heart! Next time we went to the store, my son yelled out to me from the end of aisle “Mom, did you get your paycheck? I want to buy candy!” The entire store burst out in laughter!
- I will have chicken Drumsticks, please!
Every time we go to the temple, the Priest gives us some sweets after the prayers. The Priest loves children and always gives them extra sweets. This one time, when the Priest gave my son the sweets, he asked him (really loudly of course!) “Can I have chicken wings instead?” (For those of you who do not know, Hindu temples are strictly vegetarian!) Obviously the Priest was looking for me while I was busy hiding behind my neighbor’s back and pretending to not know that kid! 😛
- Punish me all week!
Once I gave my son a timeout in a slightly different manner, I told him that he was not allowed any TV time for all week and weekend. It was a punishment. He was upset about it of course. So much that while we were waiting in line at the pharmacist, he asked me “Mommy, are you going to punish me real bad next week too?” The horrified look on the faces of the people around us said it all!
- That’s too much Wine!
In the same pharmacy, I was picking up some wine and beer for a game night that I had organized for some visiting friends. When we got to the cashier, my son had a horrified look on his face and asked me loudly “Are you going to drink all of that?” I literally grabbed my stuff, my son and ran out of the pharmacy while many judging eyes bore into my back! 😀
- Was that you, Mom?
While walking in the Walmart aisle my son smelled something bad and asked me out loud “That stinks! Was that you, Mom?” It was one of those moments when you want the earth to just open up and swallow you! Why would he think that was me!?! 😀
- I have a young Mom!
My son gets very excited around my birthday time. When he asked me how old I was turning, I said 30. To him that seemed like a big number and he said “That’s old!” Obviously I corrected him (more for my own satisfaction) and told him that it was not old and that in the adult world it is still pretty young! The next day at the playground, we met a couple with 2 small kids who had just moved into the neighborhood. We got talking and the man asked my son how old he was and what grade he went to. After telling him that he was 6 years old and went to 1st grade, my son followed it up with a “You know, my mom is only 30 and it is not old! She is still young!” Needless to say, we never saw that family again! 😛
- Is he Pregnant?
Once while shopping in a mall, my son spotted a man with a huge belly. He had just learned of how babies are in their mommies tummies before they are born. He figured maybe they could be in daddy’s tummy too, so he went straight to that man and asked him “Do you also have a baby in your tummy?” The only thing I remember after that is apologizing to that man while I grabbed my 5 year old and ran out the door!
I hope you enjoyed our hilarious moments and had a good laugh. Do you have any such embarrassing moments? It would definitely help to know that I am not the only one! 😉
