Embarrasing Bairns


Recommended Posts

One year when son was aboot 7 or 8 we were going sooth on holiday and he went oot to play till we left to go to the boat. He came in went straight to his room and came oot wi a toorie on. I tried to tell him to leave it and get to the car. We were on the boat and he still had toorie on and when I tried to get it off him he started to greet. We went for tea and later went to the cabin to go to bed and I finally put the foot doon and demanded the toorie came aff. Boy the air was blue when I seen him. Him and his pal had decided he needed a haircut afore his holiday. He had a v shaped fringe on one side a bald patch at other side, he had at least three bald circles and loads of bits sticking oot. I burst oot greetin and sobbed all the way to aberdeen to a hairdresser. I could only laugh about it years later.

One from each of our children when they were very small. Both said in that searingly loud voice that only little kids have when they're saying something embarassing..

 

Sitting eating a meal in the Viking Café and son pointing at man nearby & well within hearing distance -

"Mummy look! That man's wearing a wig!"

 

In the queue at the Royal Bank on the street, pointing at woman nearby -"Mummy, that lady's sexy, isn't she?"

I remember one time when my family went to Blackpool on holiday and it was very windy and I was wearing a long skirt. When we had our lunch which was fish and chips and that we got surrounded by 42 pigeons! I saw a family taking photos of their children on holiday (I imagine).

Until the pigeons flew away, my skirt went up and I had to do the Marilyn Monroe position to prevent them taking a photo of me doing it, but it was too late, they took a photo of me! :roll: :lol:

The family were laughing their heads of because of the incident! It was so embarrasing, now I wear trousers/jeans instead of skirts.

For anyone who's familiar with Cbeebies, there is one particular programme 'Boogie Beebies' which my daughter (almost 3) has been known to sing the signature tune to on occasion--usually when we're in the church or supermarket or generally anywhere with a large catchment area. Only in Lithuanian Beebies (not sure of the spelling in Lithuanian but the pronunciation's the same) is a very vulgar word. :oops: :oops: :oops:

I mind aboot 12 years ago, when me an me bridder (he wis aboot 9 years old at da time)wir in Aberdeen, an he had a fascination aboot silly putty. He loved squashin it against random objects tae see da imprint o it. One mornin we were gettin ready tae head tae da airport an da taxi wis comin in aboot 5-10 mins. He had locked himsel in da bathroom, i finally got him tae open da door tae fin him greetin. An when I saw whit happened I couldna help but laugh. He had been wirkin wi da silly putty an decided da he wanted tae mak an imprint o his hair. Weel, It wis stuck in his hair right tae da root. My mam went mental an da taxi wis waitin fir wis ootside. She had tae cut it oot, an he wis left wi a bold patch an had tae wear a hat fir a few weeks afore it grew back in again. He has niver lived it doon. Da funniest wis da panic in his eyes, an da anger in me mams. LOL

oh and there I was thinking someone was coming up with new ways of embarrassing bairns. I take great pride in doing everything I can to embarrass mine. As I tell her it's one of the most important aspects of being a parent.

 

Once children reach a certain age they are embarrassed by there parents just for living MJ so keep up the good work

aah all the stuff I've to look forward to when I become a Mam lol.

 

I embarrased my parents on the Clair when I was younger. We were in the bar and I had fallen asleep it. I woke up and mind Top of the Pops being on. Dad turned around and said "you're looking a bit green around the gills" to which I promptly spewed over the table and everywhere. I was taken back the next morning to apologise to the barman :oops:

When I was about 7 years old and I was going with my mother's friend and her 3 sons to the Scalloway post office, when we were waiting and me and her youngest son (would've been 3 or 4 years old) were playing a small game of tag.

3 minutes in the game I was backing off and I didn't notice there were cress plants and basil plants on the floor. I accidently tripped over and had my bum on the plants and plastic pots went snap! Everyone in the room started laughing at me and the helpful shop assistant helped me to stand up.

When we left, I had a black bum! :lol: :lol:

I mind anidder time when me an my bridder wir peerie, an he used tae get his lugs cleaned by da Dr. Mam got dis bottle o stuff tae use i think once a week. Ee day my bridder asked mam if dere wis such a thing as green ear wax. Mam said she wisna sure, so aaf he gied. Aboot 30 mins efter he came back an said tae mam "I hear somethin rumblin in my lug, i think its wax mam" So oot mam cam wi da stuff da Dr had gien her, it wis lik a sookie thing tae clean his lugs. Tae mam's horror oot cam dis green baa o wax, well dats whit my bridder said it wis, when mam looked at it harder she noticed dat it looked braaly simpler tae da dried peas fae da broth mix she wis wirkin wi afore. It turned oot dat he had fun a dried green pea on da floor an had been purlin aboot wi it an pitten it in his lug. At least mam saw da funny side.
