He did what......?

As a mum of two boys I consider it my duty, no, actually my right, to embarrass them whenever I can. At the moment it is hugging and kissing Son no 1 in public that has him squirming and running away from me. He is only 5!

But what happens when the little darlings embarrass you?  Well for a Flashback Friday moment I thought I would share with you the moment when my eldest little delight truly and utterly embarrassed me.  Of course I will have the last laugh in this matter. I can’t wait for the day he sits down to read my blog and finds this!!

So picture the scene, I am at work about to go for an important meeting (coffee) with another manager.  So my lippie is on, I grab my coat and then the phone rings.  I notice it is from the nursery, bugger, do I answer it or let it go to voicemail and ring them back after my coffee? 

I decided to answer it, this was a bad move!

Hi it’s Jo from the Nursery.

Oh hi, what is wrong, everything okay with F?

Yeah he is fine, but we have had an incident today which I need to inform you about.

Phew okay (thinking great I don’t need to rush home) what has happened?

Well at carpet time this morning he decided to take out his Willy.

HE DID WHAT?  (At this point everyone turns at look at me as I turned from my normal shade of pasty white to a bright pink)

He pulled down his shorts and took his Willy out.

Oh my god I am so sorry.  (Thinking this is all...)

That’s okay.

So did you tell him off?  (Still thinking that this was all)

Yes. but there is more.

MORE?  (Getting redder at this stage)

Yes, he then started to play with his Willy.

HE DID WHAT?  (Now more people staring, almost burning up with the embarrassment)

Yes he started playing with his foreskin, pulling it back, showing and telling all the children what he could do.

OH MY GOD!

The rest of the conversation just blurred into me apologising more and more in a very high pitched voice.  With images of what he usually does at bath time flashing through my head.  But really, on the mat, at nursery!  Her telling me not to worry as it happens all the time at nursery, both boys and girls do it.

Of course the fact that it is quite common for the little angels to do this didn’t make any difference to me.  That afternoon I sheepishly walked into the nursery with my head hung low.

Oh the shame..

For more Flashback Friday moments pop yourself over to Cafe Bebe now...

Mummy Mishaps aka Jenny Paulin said...

Oh noooooooooooo!! Whatba rascal and how embarrassed he will be when he reads this back when he is older! Let's hope it's not a start in a career in adult movies *ahem* ;)
great read, made me laugh :) xx

Sarah said...

If Jo told you it happens all the time, you can then share the shame... ;o)
Would love to see your son's face when he finally reads this!

Fox in the City said...

bwhahahah! Oh Jo he is pretty much going to kill you when he is older and reads this.

Oh my god, both of my kids are experts at going at themselves. I never imagined I would have to remind them day in and day out to be gentle with themselves and for heavens sake, try and keep that sort of activity to the privacy of their own rooms.

Yes the look on his face when he is old enough to read this will be payback enough for me...

Fab story to remind him of on his 18th or better still his wedding day :)

Musings from a mum said...

How funny! I would say it's a boy thing but my 2yo daughter decided to strip in the middle of song time at a play group, I had to fight my way through a sea of toddlers to get to her just as she managed to get pants off and fling them into crowd. So embarrassing but pretended she needed a wee and scarpered. Have never returned...

Frankie P said...

Thanks Mari, yes we will be dragging this one out..

Hi Musings... Yes my friends little girls are always doing stuff like that.. But for me i had to go back....

Mother Bloggin' Guilt said...

oh dear. I dread getting a phone call like that! Did the nursery suggest any way you can stop a child doing that?! The worst I've had is my son asking me why it gets bigger and smaller! Oh no, what if he asks that at nursery? argh!!

Emma said...

Oh no, I've got all this to look forward too haven't I !

Frankie P said...

Hi MBG, no they said it happens alot so they talked to him about doing it only at home etc... they were very good about it..

Emma, you might be one of the lucky ones, thanks for the comment...
