My daughter is 2 1/2 we went to the library a few days ago. I needed a book for a research paper and while I was talking to the research librarian she started to sing happy birthday at the top of her lungs, everyone in the library gave me that look, yeah you know the one, I could not get out there fast enough.

By Terri,   From Fort Atkinson
I think my most embarrassing experience as a parent was when my son was about 4 and he threw a huge temper tantrum in a Rocky Rococco's. We had to pretty much drag him screaming and kicking out of there.

By Wendy,   From Davenport
Near the end of church one Sunday, my four-month old exploded out of her diaper. I looked down and there was yellow [insert your own noun] all over the church floor. Since I was holding a baby and covered in poop, I simply dropped a blanket to cover the incriminating evidence. After church, several very nice people offered to pick up the blanket for me! Mortified, I fended them off. After the church was empty, I was able to clean up the mess.

P.S. She threw up on the way home, too.

By Veronica,   From Jefferson
I was at the grocery store. This little boy who was about three or four turned at looked at this black lady behind him and told his mother loudly Momma she' really black.!

By Karen,   From Adams
Since she is still just a little one, the most embarrasing thing would be diaper leakage. Not just talking a little leak, I'm talking full blow-out in an area where there were lots of people.

By Beverly,   From Hyde Park
We were at a shopping mall and I was getting a haircut and my husband was watching our little daughter. They had come back from shopping to see if I was all done and I wasn't, so my daughter started hollering and crying for her mommy (me) and the girl that was doing my hair, said to me, that child has the loudest voice and I didn't want to tell her it was my child, that was hollering so loud. LOL.

By Tricia,   From Raleigh
My daughter is five and always asking questions and try to answer her honestly, in child appropriate ways. One day we were at a clothing store and she saw a woman walk out of the dressing stall and look in the three view mirror at how the pants fit her from every angle. My daughter said (loudly!) is she checking to see if she peed or pooped herself? I wanted to crawl into a clothing rack.

By Julie,   From Saint Johns
We were at WDW and my son didn't want to stop to eat at the Tomorrowland restaurant. While we were trying to seat him with his lunch he looked out the window and saw the Grand Prix car ride. He started yelling at the top of his lungs, "I want the grand pricks" over and over again.

By Patty,   From Rochester NH
Thank you so much for having this contest. I really appreciate it.

By Heidi,   From Winamac
We were in walmart and it is really quiet and my son shouts " something smells, mom, did you fart"

I took my grandaughter grocery shopping and she was standing too close to the trunk. When I closed it I clunked her in the head. It bled a little and she forgave me but I don't know if her mother has.

By Catrina,   From Memphis
For my birthday 2 of my daughters took me to lunch along with my 2 yr old grandaughter. She was pretty rambuncious but finally settled down. The restaurant was crowded but fairly quiet. All of sudden my grandaughter let out a blood curdling scream. Everyone in the restaurant started laughing...

Most embarrassing moment I can think of is when my twin sons were little and in the play area at McDonalds. All of a sudden I saw one of my little guys go pee in the play area and before I knew it the other one was. Needless to say, we left that place real quick.

By Chrysa,   From Cambridge
I have only heard about it second hand, but my mom had a really embarassing moment in front of all my extended family when I was 4 and yelled the word sh*t when my cousin messed up the game we were playing. Needless to say, she removed that word from her vocabulary for a few years.

By Sheila,   From Kansas City
Last week when my son was really cranky in a resturaunt, I tried to give him some chocolate milk out of my straw and he grabbed it and flung it. The man behind us ended up with it all over his face. Agh!

By Ed,   From Skokie
The little one introduced me to one of his new friends while I was in the bathroom, sitting. He opened the door and said, "That's my Dad!"

My four year old son throwing a tantrum in the church lobby and then running off on me so I had to chase him down.

By Svea,   From Union
I took a shuttle bus to a movie set of Kindergarten Cop with my newborn daughter. I had left the diaper bag in the car as we hadn't planned on being gone long. All the way on the bus she expelled gasous noises that echoed in her diaper as I smiled at the strangers around me. I was just sure she was filling her with a lovely mess so I wrapped her in my jacket. When we got to the set, I searched around for another mother and embarassedly borrowed a diaper. As I took off the old diaper, it was empty! It turns out that it was only air.

By Leslie,   From Mc Alpin
My most embarrising moment happened when my oldest daughter was 3(now 11).She saw a woman open a bag of cookies in the grocery and start to eat them.My daughter stating screaming to call the police that the lady was stealing.The poor woman(as well as about 5 other people) just stared at us.I had to explain that just the week before my daughter and I had to have a talk because she was try to rip open the groceries in the cart and eat them.I had told her that they were not ours until we paid fo them.The lady understood and told my daughter she was ight and that it would not happen again.I hurried up and got through with that trip.Thanks!

By Jay,   From Chicago
My daughter was 3 or so. We were shopping on a cold day before Christmas at a Toys R Us. Right in front by the registers she threw up all over me and my shoes and the floor - a lot. I went and got one of the kids working there, and they kept looking up at the ceiling. I guess they were trying to figure out if it was a bird or something. Never wore those shoes again.

By Jaque,   From Phoenix
My most embarassing parental moment was when I was shopping with my 3 year old son in the cart. I was comparing ingredients when my son announced, loud and clear, "Look mommy chocolate people!" I was preoccupied and murmered "uh huh". then it dawned on me what he had said...I looked up and saw a lovely, smiling, couple of color standing there. I was speachless.

By LisaM,   From Nacogdoches

By beth,   From Xenia
The most embarassing moment for me was when my daughter was a baby and I was carrying her around just happy as could be. She was wearing this adorable dress and this nice woman stopped me to tell me how cute she was etc Then also told me that she had poo all up her back! Uggh. She had messed in her diaper and it was all over her back. What a mess.

I'm sure my moms most embarressing moment with me as a child (around 4) was when i saw her drinking a root beer before church one sunday and i preceded to stand up on a pew and announce to the congregation that my mom drank beer. she will never let me forget that

By JenniferR,   From Houston
Just the other day I went to the grocery store and saw this poor man having problems with his possibly four year old. The little guy was having a crazy tantrum. He ended up knocking over tons of pickle jars which of course broke. The guy looked beyond embarrassed.

By Laura,   From Villas
When my son was born my daughter was 2 and was still having trouble getting her c's and s's right. At my son's chistening, his sock fell off and in the middle of the church, my daughter cries out. "Oh no mommy! The baby's cock fell off!" Everyone turned to stare at us. It was definitely embarressing.

By MaryBeth,   From Raleigh

When we young parents our toddler asked us in the loudest voice in the store (after he was scolded), "Daddy, are you going to spank my butt?"

By Deborah,   From Andover
My most embarassing parent moment was at the hands of my them 3 year old son (who is now 33). We were at McDonalds having lunch, when a rather large woman walked in-my child said at the top of his lungs:" Mommy, look at that lady-boy is she ever FAT! " I noticed from the other comments that this seems to be a problem among 3 year olds!

By Erica,   From Baltimore

My 3 year old grandson commenting loudly about a rather heavy lady coming into his preschool at the same time as us "Look grandma, she ate all her dinner."

By Jennifer,   From Kennesaw
Most embarassing for me was after dinner in a restaurant I took my daughter to the restroom as my husband took our other daughter to the car. We came out of the bathroom and my daughter yelled at the top of her lungs "DADDY I POOPIED" about five times before I got her out the door. Icing on the cake she didn't and she wasn't potty trained so it wouldn't have been a great feat regardless.

By sandy,   From USA
Most embarrassing moment is when I was too far away from home on a day trip, and since it was a holiday and podunk town I was at there were no shops open, so baby poop was on my pants from a leaking diaper. Sure restaurants were open and we were meeting friends, just wish back then I thought to pack extras for me.

By Andrew,   From reminderville
My son was 3 at the time and had been obsessed with seeing the new Fat Albert movie. We were in line at the grocery store and a rather large african american woman was in front of us. I knew it was coming before he even said it...but he did, "Hey, Hey,Hey!" right to the lady.

By Dawna,   From Denver
This is one of my favorite movies as a child and I would love my children to experience the magice too.

By Carol,   From Wayne
I would say it's when my 1-year-old baby projectile vomited on me on a Jetblue flight to Orlando. I had a winter coat with me because we left NJ on a cold snowy January day. I had to wear that coat through the airport til I got to the rest room to change. The baby and I were both covered in it. YUCK
