10 Embarrassing Mommy Moments
I let my daughter draw all over my back and shoulders with washable marker--then I forgot and ran errands all afternoon that way.

Taking the Blame
I was sitting in the waiting room at my OB's office with my son, who was 3 at the time. There was another lady in there with her infant and the baby farted really loud. My darling son looked at me and said, "Mom!"

While we were waiting in a fast-food line, my 6-month-old decided she would help herself to a drink and pulled my shirt down, completely exposing my bra. I didn't notice until an older woman came up and told me!

Stuck on You
I was wearing a long scarf one day while getting my baby ready to go out. Right before we got in the car, I wrapped one side of the scarf around my neck thinking, Wow, look at me, still stylish with a 2-month-old. Little did I know that one of my daughter's diapers (unused, thankfully!) had stuck to the scarf and was dangling down my back! I walked around like that until someone kindly said, "Ma'am, I think you've lost something."

I received the Associate of the Month award at my company and had my picture taken with the company's president for the corporate newsletter. On my way back to my desk, I noticed that there was spit-up all down the collar and front of my shirt. This all happened after 4 p.m., so it had been that way all day!

What Did She Say?
My daughter and I were watching some kids doing tricks on their bikes and skate boards at the park when one of the kids took a really hard fall. My 1-1/2 year old daughter yelled, "Oh, sh-t!" All the other parents turned and looked at us--and we went home.

Walk of Shame
I was a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding and walked down the aisle with spit- up all down the side of my dress. I didn't notice it until after the ceremony was over.

During a trip to Wal-Mart, when my daughter was in the potty-training stage, she told me she needed to go to the bathroom. After she went, I said, "Yay! Let's tell Daddy!" She ran out of the bathroom yelling "Daddy, Daddy. Mommy went poop!" All the cashiers and customers stopped to look at us.

When my son was 2, we were at the store and saw some Thomas the Tank Engine toys. My son loves Percy (the green one) but, at the time, he couldn't say "Percy," so it sounded like he was saying, "Look, Mommy, p-ssy! I want p-ssy!" I kept saying, "Yes, that's Percy the Tank Engine!"

My husband and I were out shopping about a week after our daughter was born and I leaked through my nursing pads. I walked around half the store before my husband and I realized it.
