Share your most Embarrassing / Funny Mum moments

Lately I have been thinking of all my embarrassing moments as a Mother. Probably because of all my fantastic fellow Mummy bloggers and their great posts and funny photo shares.

Over the years our kids have managed to embarrass us a lot. Ssh, don’t let them know because they may just try harder.

Last week Miss Moo and I had a sneaky visit to Bunnings. On our way out Miss Moo decided it was time to get out of the trolley and walk. Now this is fine and  Miss Moo was helping push the trolley until she decided that she needed to adjust her shoes right in the middle of the entrance aisle while insisting I assist her. So I did what every good Mum does and got down on the floor to help her. As I stood up I heard giggling and turned to see three teenagers looking in my direction. I felt a bit breezy around the back-end and reach around to realise that my Jeans were no longer covering my derrière  and my brightly striped underwear were showing. I quickly pulled up my Jeans and paid for my items in record time . Luckily Miss Moo is at an age that she isn’t embarrassed by me.

As I have got older I have found that I am not as embarrassed about things as I was when I was younger. I have also noticed that a lot of people seem to  worry less about embarrassing themselves as they get older. It’s almost like the filter has worn out for some people. I wonder if this will happen to Mr T & T and I , will we have the ability to embarrass our kids in public and not bat an eyelid (I say with a glint in my eye).

Not one size fits all

Recently I was at the playground with Miss Moo pushing her on the swing when I overheard a group of Mums talking about sleep routines. I won’t repeat the conversation word for word but I can tell you the following things were mentioned ; Self Soothing, cry it out , swaddling  and introducing solids early.

I found myself walking away from the playground that day thinking about the many conversations I’d had with Mr T & T over the years about the latest article or book I’d read and convincing him that whatever recent  sleep method I’d read about was a great idea and we should try it. Two weeks in and the book was back on the shelf or returned never to be spoken about again.

Some of our older kids were great sleepers and some  could have easily given night shift workers a run for their money in a competition of who is more alert after pulling an all nighter.
Of course we would get the many meaningful advisers in our younger days as parents about just leaving them cry etc.

So 15 years after our Miss Teen was born when we found out we were expecting Miss Moo I went out and began my usual quest for information from the latest experts.  Crazy I know,  after all we already had 4 kids so why would we need a book.

Truth be known reflecting now,  I was determined to do what most parents want to do,  be the best and do the best job I could. Have we tried any new methods this time around?
I can honestly say yes.  The same ones we are still doing ; What works for our family and Miss Moo.
We know this time will pass quicker than we want it to, so if that means she needs extra cuddles or to have us close by then so be it because before we know it she will be asking us to take her for driving lessons.

Please don’t misunderstand me there are lots of wonderful parenting books out there and I’m almost positive that I will read more but Just like a gorgeous winter coat ( there isn’t a one size fits each family method).

To all My Mummy friends out there and friends of mums I say be kind to yourselves and them. Parenting is a journey that never ends and each day has its challenges and celebrations.

Your doing great!

Enjoy the Moments
