“Mom, you’re embarrasing.”

Embarrassing…. My young daughter has decided that I am embarrassing! Can you believe that?  I mean truly… embarrassing?

The only reason I chose to even leave the house today, in the rain, is because the paint fumes in the house were forcing us out.  It was either pass out from polyurethane or go to Star Bucks.

We drive over to Star Bucks. I am so excited for my girl date, that I even leave my cell phone in the car!  We are walking towards the door and I mention how excited I am to go inside with her,get tea, and sit and chat.

Her head spun around like she was hit in the head with a baseball bat.  She loudly questioned me, “What? We are NOT sitting in Star Bucks!”

In utter confusion, I explain that indeed we are sitting in Star Bucks and it will be fun.   We need to kill time before we go back to the poisonous noxious fumes.

“Mom, no offense, but no way, you’re embarrassing.”

At this moment I realize I dont like this conversation. My response: “REALLY!!!!!!  REALLY!  Embarrassing…

So I’m not embarrassing to go shopping with when  you need my cash, or my car, or my credit card but just to have a cup of tea?!   What could I possibly do to embarrass someone over tea?”

I turned around and headed back to the car with confused tweener walking behind me. “Wait we AREN’T getting Star Bucks mom?”

Not until I’m done being embarrassing!

What do you do that embarrasses  your kids!?DMW_0893

    Back in the tween days everything was embarrassing. I loved it. Now my kids have kids and the payback is just down the road a bit. Love your writing.
