The other night I took the boys to the store quickly so I could pick up a few things we desperately needed – you know like food.
As we were checking out, Little B started crying for me to hold him. After I put everything on the counter to be scanned, I picked him up.
Then he starts.
“My butt itches Mom!”
This only means one thing…he needs to go to the bathroom.
Then Big A starts crying he is tired. I pick him up with the other arm struggling to get him into the cart. I realized just how big he really is…about 45 pounds now!
I start putting bags in the cart as Little B keeps screaming, “My butt itches, scratch it!”
The teenage cashier looks at me with a disgusted smile, obviously she has no idea and I felt like saying to her, “Don’t laugh, your time is coming Miss!”
I decided instead of getting embarrassed, I would embrace it. So what if my son said he has an itchy butt. Everyone around me has experienced this before in their life and my son is confident enough in his own skin to shout it through the store to let everyone know….literally!
What’s the most embarrassing thing your child has said while in public?
