OMG mommy moments?

Okay--Kristi asked for our most disgusting mommy moments, but what about your "OMG, I can't believe he/she just did THAT!" moments?

I had one tonight. As DS and I were at the pool, we heard the ice cream truck. So I told DS if we left "right now" we'd go home, get some money, and I'd buy him an ice cream cone. So he flies out of the pool and into his stroller and we walk the block home and wait on the front porch for the ice cream man. 10 minutes, 15 minutes, an eternity passes. And the ice cream man is nowhere to be seen. So, I pick up DS and try assuring him that Daddy and I will take him for an ice cream cone tomorrow when Daddy gets home from work. We go inside and strip off his pool diaper and swim trunks, strip off my suit, and start getting him ready for bed (all the while, he's repeating "ice cream cone, PINK ice cream cone" like a broken record). Suddenly, I hear the music from the ice cream truck. I throw on my pants, fly down the stairs (dropping a clean diaper on the stairs), grab a $5 and run out the front door. The ice cream truck pulls over and I ask for a pink cone for my baby. Then a drumstick for myself. As she's handing me the cones, she was kind of looking at me funny, but I just thought it was b/c I was a mess from the pool. So I take the cones, take my change, and turn around to see:

DS standing at the front door in all his little glory: his nose, bare tummy, AND his penis pressed up against the glass. Remember what they said on Seinfeld about the turtle and swimming? So anyway, there was my baby who wanted a pink cone w/his little parts on display for all to see, shrieking, "PINK ICE CREAM CONE!"

Yeah--I bolted up the lawn to give him his cone, and get his naked self away from the front door. ;)

Let me think of the best one:


I may have told this before but our ped started a new intake process after Alex was born. Some of the questions were to weed out possible depression or abuse.


Nurse: Do you ever feel frustrated with Alex?


Zak: Frustrated?! My mother yells all the time esp at me and sometimes she spanks me. She's mean!


Thank goodness the nurse knew Zak and I well. She just laughed.

ROTFLMAO. Sometimes the fact that the boys are late talkers isn't a bad thing, no? ;) How is Alex doing w/that, anyway? If he's still not talking much, perhaps it's not such a bad thing...

Chase said his first spontaneous 4 word sentence last week. We were having dinner at my parents' and Dad asked DH if he wanted another beer. Dh said, Sure!" Chase said, "I want one, too!" His third word was "beer" and now this...he definitely inherited my sister's beer gene. ;)

Christi, I swear the child is driving me insane.


He just does things when he is ready and nothing...Heaven, Earth, God...can make him do it earlier. Alex started talking in complete paragraphs out of the blue. Whole conversations. It is unbelievable. My aunt and my mother warned me that he would but I didn't believe them.


Grr...I guess he will do the same with potty training. I just hope it does it before three and the Disney Cruise. Please, Please, Please.


Oh, he has named his pacifier Harvey. I have no clue where this came from but it is kind of frightening.

Well, at least when he asks for Harvey, you don't get dirty looks from other parents. Shrieking "PACI! PACI!" on the other hand...you get the "if he can ask for it, he's too old for it" look. Good think he only asks for the bottle at bedtime, I suppose! ;)

I'm glad he's talking for you though, I'm sure that was a relief....maybe?;)

His favorite phrase is "Mean Mommy Mean"


Second favorite: "Stop, Momma. Please" when I count to three


Then again, he also says "I love you Momma. Hug me." and, when I complaining about his endless poopy diapers he said. "I sorry Momma" He is so cute right now.

LOL, that's a great one for the baby book!


Just last week, ds1 and I were outside - he was running through the sprinkler on the side while I planted flowers out front.

Oh, another one, care of my dd.


I got pulled over for speeding one day on my way to take my kids to preschool.

Just wait - if your dh hasn't already done so, he will be teaching your ds how to retrieve beers for him from the fridge.

Yup, yup, yup. . .my kids could all identify beer in the fridge and 'fetch' one for dh pretty early on. . .ds learned last night that dh likes lime in his beer and asked his dad if the lime 'jumped in there all by itself or if daddy had to help it'.

My story doesn't involve body parts, but did give me a sense of "oh my gosh what have I gotten myself into" at the time.


My oldest was nearly 4 when dh went from Reserve Duty to Active Duty status.
