I think tomarrows Sunday, but I'm slightly confuzzled.
Koffee Klatch:
What is the darnest thing that your kids have done to you in public that they should of handled differently?
My monkey just got finished being potty trained. Anyhow, he didn't really need the pull ups, but I knew we'd be out all day and going everywhere by city bus. So mommy side of me, stuck him in a pull up just in case. Last bus of the night (they stopped at 9pm here) we are just pulling out of the bus station and he yells "MOMMMY I GOTTA PEE!" Kid you not he actually yelled and it was loud enough for the bus driver to actually stop the bus and look at me and ask me what I wanted to do... take him to bathroom and miss bus, the last of the night or make him hold it. Then it dawned at me in a moment of panic, that I stuck a pull up on him that morning. So I said to the driver, "go ahead and go, I knew I put a pull up on him for a reason today" the whole bus laughed. Then the monkey goes "Mommy how do I pee on  a bus?" So I said "You hold it, but if you got to go thats ok too cuz we got a pull up on you today instead of big boy underwear." What else was I supposed to do? LOL.

I do not have kids...however, I witnessed this one and it still gives me giggles.

Second nephew was 4 months old and he needed his diaper changed. Sis-in-law takes off first one with second underneath like a pro...BUT he wiggles the untied diaper down and lets it GO. Funniest thing I ever SAW! He sent a stream up his chest and since he was went in his mouth, hitting him also in the nose and face. That boy learned FAST. He never again peed without a diaper in place until we potty trained him and THEN he stripped off all his clothes to use the big boy potty. So, apparently a baby can retain enough sensory memory of an unpleasant event to never have it happen again LOL.

The other day I ran into my daughter and granddaughters at an Italian Restaurant. They were there with my dtr's girfriend and her daughters as well, Kelly's friends. Kelly is six years old.

Well, this was shortly after I had lost all my hair from the chemo and I was wearing a scarf. As I approached the table to say hello, Kelly hopped off the seat and yelled at the top of her lungs to her little friend while pointing at my head, "My Grandma is bald! My Grandma is bald, Just ask her, she is bald!" Well of course everyone turned around and I slowly sank into the floor. LOL. I simply said to Kelly, keep your voice down honey.

That was a humbling experience, but shows the innocence of children!


Thought I'd share that funny story with you all.

I took my son with me to the podiatrist and when the podiatrist raised up the chair that I was sitting on my son pipes up with "wow mom, I didn't think that chair could lift you". I started laughing and the podiatrist looked at my son and said "if anyone said that to my wife they wouldnt live very long".

I was trying to get my then 3 yr old son to use the appropriate words for his anatomy but he insisted on calling it a "dinky". We were in a restaurant with extremely slow service that night so he and my daughter were making faces and my daughter opened her mouth wide. My son saw her uvula and screamed at the top of his lungs "She's got a dinky in her mouth!"

I was soooo glad he hadn't used p-n-s like I had been pushing him to do, that could have been really bad.

Gosh, there are so many! My son was always bound and determined to get his way. One night when he was about 5, we were at the 4th of July carnival, in the Funhouse, and I told him it was time to leave. He yelled, "NO!!" and turned around and started running - right smack into the mirror. He got a big goosebump on his head, and my husband dropped the two of us off at the ER while he went home with our 2-year old. A few hours later, we took a taxi home.

It didn't make him any less willful.

My daughter was newly potty trained, and just at the age where she was obsessed with checking out public restrooms.  I was working late, one of our sons had a Little League baseball game, so my husband had to take her along.  She became obsessed with the restroom  at the park, and my husband had to take her at least a dozen times before the game was over.  She was in a silly mood, and each time they had just gotten sat down, she would announce in a very loud voice "Dad, I have to 'tinky winky' again!"  He said that all of the other parents at the game were staring and laughing as he was running her back and forth to the restrooms.  He saw very little of the game that night.
