Hollister is growing on me...

No...not because of THAT.... But, because it's a place I can go and embarrass my kids who think a mom who has her friend take pics IN A STORE is a NUT! Now, THAT is enjoyable!! Where have you embarrassed your kids? Best answer WINS~~

This just happened yesterday :-) My 11 yr old son does school from home on the computer and yesterday he had to participate in a "chat" with his teacher and other students online. Well I was wrapped up in myself (cleaning of course), and singing as LOUD and just KNOWING I sounded totally awesome when my son turns to me and says "mom my teacher wants to know if you can stop cause she is having a hard time hearing us cause of your singing". The little $h!t had the microphone on and I had no idea he wasactually "CHATTING" with these people! He was totally mortified (okay maybe I was too - but just a little).

Oh you should ask!!! Me and my oldest son, Chris had stopped at the local Walmart to pick up a few things on our way in from work/school! As we exited the car, I grabbed my purse and began to walk and my skirt fell to my ankles!!! There I stood in the most FLORAL GRANNY PANTIES ever!!! He stood there in total shock! As I tried desperately to try and get the skirt pulled up, he TRIED to help me and my foot got tangled in the skirt, and I fell forward, bellyfirst on the pavement, I don't know who was going into cardia arrest first ME or the POOR KID!! There I lay flatout in WALMART parking lot PANTIES EXPOSED to WALMART SHOPPERS within view!!! My son was simply horrified and I was embarassed beyond measure!!! To this day HE REFUSES to even go to Walmart or ANY store with me (that kid is NOW 23yrs old)!! He says "Momma I can NEVER live that down EVER"! Hey if I can "live down" GRANNY PANTIES exposed in one of AMERICA'S LARGEST SHOPPING RETAILS...surely he can live it down....ya think?

At almost 4 my child isn't old enough to embarrass yet. Instead I resort to writing mushy stuff on stuff I remember from when they were babies on my cousins Facebook walls. I'm surprised they haven't unfriended me yet.

Hmm, can't think of many times, except one day at school I called my daughter her nickname, ( boo bear) not thinking, and some of her classmates heard it and still try and call her that - it just makes her mad.. and she keeps asking me why i did that...

That's fabulous!! My kids are too young to be embarrassed just yet....I'm taking notes for the future.

My "Baby" is 43 yo and I have always told him that one of the main duties of a parent is to embarrass their children. If they don't, they don't get their parenting degree. When he was about 12, we were vacationing and staying in a motel. I couldn't find the room key in my purse so I just dumped the purse out on the floor in the hallway. He is still embarrassed about that action.

My oldest is just getting into the embarrassed by her parents phase. We threaten a lot but have not really had the opportunity. However, recently we went out to dinner and hubby insisted we all wear our MU shirts to support his team. She felt the restaurant was too nice for that and refused. I think she was embarrassed by that. I should point out this is a child who has to be reminded to shower and was the milk mustache off her face.

I embarrass my 3 teen girls all the time. I can't count the number of eye rolls and shrieks of, "Mooooom." The most recent thing that came to mind was when my 14 year old refused to buy perfectly good underwear at SEARS, a real deal too. I chased her around the store trying to show her how cute the panties were, she kept trying to get away from me and of course a friend (male) from her school was watching from afar. She didn't speak to me for 2 days. They really were a great deal,but didn't say Victoria's Secret of Aries on the butt (and cost 5 times as much). So I lost.

snekcip... THANK GOD i had nothing in my mouth or it would have come out of my nose....

I have always told my kids it is MY JOB to embarrass them an so they pay me back in kind when ever possible...

the best lately however have to do with well how to put it ... licking my hubbys tongue (he licks back of course) anywhere that we are that they are with us... we do it just to annoy them and it works wonderfully! my son is soon to be 21 and daughter just turned 17....

Ok, these are funny, but alas, mine are still too young for this. To illustrate...
My daughter (soon-to-be 10) was looking over my shoulder at this post. I think the photo caught her attention. Anyway, I read the part about embarrassing your kids to her and that the "Best answer WINS."
Her reply?
"Why would you do that?"

But I know it's right around the corner, so I'm takin' notes.

My kids are a little too young for embarrassment. I have twin boys who are 3 and a 5 year old daughter. It's the other way around - THEY EMBARRASS ME (and that's really saying something). My daughter has gotten better - but you know how young kids are. They point and talk very loud about someone in a store or ask funny innocent questions ABOUT SOMEONE IN A STORE..I would not go back to preteen/teen years FOR NOTHING!! haha Look forward to reading all the other comments
