As a mom to five I’m sure there were tons of times when I had an embarrassing mom moment. I mean how many moms out there have had their child do one thing or another to embarrass them? Now I could lie to you all and say I’ve had this perfect life and never had a moment like this but we all know the truth. I’m the mom that just can’t seem to think of a ton at the moment so I’ll go over a brief few, I’m sure I’ve mentioned them here or on Facebook (The Life of a Home Mom) from one time or another. I do want to say sometimes embarrassing moments can be the silly ones and I hope my kids always find the silly in those situations.
Back in 2002 I would have more embarrassing mom moments, or somewhere around there my oldest was attending preschool and his teacher had recently told the students if they ever got into trouble to call 9-1-1. She apparently didn’t explain she meant trouble like a house fire, or a burglar because later that week I grounded him to his room for something…probably throwing a fit or a toy. I went outside to check the mail, this is like 15 steps walking, when I came in I told him to come down. He loved on me, told me sorry and all that so we went out back to play in the water. It was a hot year so we already had the sprinklers out, we’d been outside for about 30-45 minutes when I declared it was time to go back inside, cool down and get some water. Just as we were heading in the fire/police department swarmed around the back freaking me out. They explained someone had just called 9-1-1 from inside. After they did a complete search and finally left he came clean and told me he did it. He didn’t let on the entire time. So may not be too embarrassing but it is when you are in bathing suits and have law enforcement at your home.
