I'm embarassed that I cant afford to send them to preschool. I'm embarassed at some of the things that come out of their mouths.......like Cooper telling my dad today that mommy sleeps without underwear....
Sometimes I get embarrassed when Mason rides rear facing. I know how safe it is and I am very proud of that, but most of the kids his age are in boosters, or even just a seat belt.. let alone still in a 5 point harness, but NONE of them are RF. I get so many weird looks like *I'M* the one endangering my child.

I get embarrassed when she insists on wearing a dress and then shows her undies in public. I'm working on it..grrrrr. Plus, she's the gassiest human on the planet. It's cute when she says "excuse me" in her squeaky voice but still...lol! Otherwise..I think I'm more of embarrassment to her. She calls me out on my uncoolness quite a bit lately.
Davey sucks on his shirt sometimes, and it's kind of "embarrassing" but more or less it just ticks me off (I have a thing with stuff being in people's mouths, fingers, binkies, blankies, shirts, etc, it just grosses me out and s very off putting to me for some reason). He never did it as a baby/toddler, it's something that's just come about this past year or so, I told him I'm going to start putting hot sauce in his mouth when I catch him doing it.
He's starting to notice people's skin color and will say "that brown person" which is way embarrassing, but he's not trying to be mean, he's just saying what he sees. I've tried telling him to say African American, but in reality some of the people he's talking about are Hispanic so African American doesn't cover all bases.
Oh and if he's comparing 2 ethnicities, like Hispanic and white, he'll say the Hispanic person is brown, and the white person is "skin color"! Luckily the girls I work with are not easily offended and understand that he's just a kid, they laugh about it while I sit there mortified, lol. We're all friends at work and they tease me about it, lol!

Most of the times that I get embarrassed are when I'm struggling to combat simultaneous melt downs. I usually have the kids by myself, and it's crazy just how difficult it is to contain two angry, upset kids. I tried taking them both to the pool by myself, and it was a total disaster. I ended up carrying both sopping wet children to the car, fighting them to get the buckled (all while they're screaming) and then going back to gather up all our stuff. It was crazy. All this happened, of course, in front of several of my neighbors... NONE of whom offered to help. I could have strangled them all.
Yeah, I would say the most embarrassing thing is dealing with the meltdowns too. Spencer has gotten HORRIBLE at tantrums lately. I used to could ignore them and walk away, and he would straighten up and run to keep up with me, but now he doesn't care, he would rather sit down so people to have push their carts around him while he screams and kicks the floor...SIGH...and now Allie is picking up some of his attitude too
it bothers me that kyleigh still needs a pullup everynight. The tantrums from Cj and him running from me are the worse though. I cant take him out alone bc he took off in a parking lot and almost ran in the street. Im just not as quick now to catch him. Hes much more hyper and free spirited than all his friends.
Not really with Hayden, but I'm actually kind of embarrassed that I'm still nursing Emelyn ... not around everyone but around my family, like my mom, I try to not mention it. I recently went on a road trip with my cousin for a week without Wade and didn't want her to know, so when I would try to get Emelyn to sleep without nursing her, she would scream for over an hour and I'd eventually just give up. We'd come out of the room and my cousin would just be shocked at how badly she screamed and I couldn't explain why.
I know it isn't a big deal and she's only 20 months, but I'm really just done. I've gotten to a point where I resent it most of the time b/c she's SO horrible when I refuse her and its pretty uncomfortable for me at this point. I'm hoping that the week away will wean her for good, but the pediatrician said not to be surprised if it doesn't. And to be clear, she'll be perfectly fine being away from me, even though she still nurses. Its only 1-2 times a day and when I'm not around, she doesn't even think about it :-)
Oh! I get embarrassed about still nursing Sam, also. Mostly if I'm around people who either don't have kids or who haven't had them for a long time. Even my friends that have nursed their kids, usually stopped around 6 months. *shrugs* I can't believe I forgot to mention that before. It's not something I deal with on a daily basis so I forget that other people think it's 'not normal'.
