Yesterday the kids and I were invited over to a new friend's house for the first time. Tiffany is someone I've known slightly from church and through blogging, and she's a good friend of my good friend Megan. Anyway, Tiffany invited me and the kids and Megan over to her house to hang out and then have lunch. Tiffany has a 5 year old daughter and a 1 year old son (Jude was dedicated on the same Sunday as Judah!)
So the girls are upstairs playing dress-up and the three boys are playing with toys in the living room while Tiffany, Megan and I drink tea, eat coffee cake and chat. Lovely!
Then I happen to look over and see Moses without his pants on. Uh oh. He's in the midst of potty training right now (and doing really well!) but sometimes he has an accident. No problem. I've brought extra pants just in case.
I go over and quietly ask Moses, "Did you pee?" He says, "No. Poop." Uh-oh. Big uh-oh. Sure enough, he's had a major B.M. and has taken off his undies and pants (after all, who wants to hang out in poopy pants?) I'm sure he was just trying be helpful, but when he took off his pants, he got poop everywhere. All over himself, all over the floor... dee-sgusting.
At this point I'm just like, No. Please no. Moses has never done this at home! Why now? Why here? I just met this nice woman and my son poops all over her floor. It's just so gross.
Well, I got Moses cleaned up in the tub and Tiffany (brave, wonderful person that she is) cleaned the poop off her lovely hardwood floors (thank goodness it wasn't carpet!!!) I was THOROUGHLY embarrassed. More like mortified. If our newly formed friendship can survive this, I think it weather anything!
Tiffany was very nice about the whole thing and extremely gracious and all I could do was apologize. I was able to laugh when I told Richard about it that night. But it really takes the cake for embarrassing moments.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who's been embarrassed by something their child has done!
