My Friendly Little Monster

My 3 year old boy Nixon is extremely friendly. 
He loves meeting new people and making new friends. 

We were at the ball park watching my nephew play baseball the other day. 
Nixon and my niece were off playing at the playground, where he took his shoes and socks off at. 
They came wandering back to get a treat from the concession stand just as the game was getting over. 
I sent Nixon back to the playground to get his shoes so we could leave. 
He was taking a really long time coming back so I went looking for him. 

To my horror, 
I found him, sitting on some random stranger's lap. 
I tried to keep from freaking out as I took him off of her lap. 
I really wanted to yell at her for letting him sit on her lap. 
Yeah, I know he is pretty dang cute, 
But what kind of a person lets some random kid sit on their lap? 

Needless to say, we have since had a "talk" about strangers and approaching them when Mom isn't around. 

Oh this kid is going to be the death of me!

What have your children done that completely mortified you? 


  1. Mortified? I'd have been terrified at this, and I probably would have said something to the stranger. That's not on. I have goose bumps just thinking about it!

  2. Seriously? How many characters does this box hold? Currently my 12 (almost 13) year old keeps putting his FEET ON THE TABLE. Bad enough at home but he did it recently at school (where, fortunately, he was discplined) and then this weekend at my picky sister in law's house? But the lap thing trumps this. :-)

    1. Gotta love those in-laws, and those boys! Hopefully he learns soon enough!

  3. We had company over for dinner one Sunday night after church and just as we are getting ready to say the prayer, Peyten (2 1/2) touches her privates and announces, "That tickles!" My face went bright red!

    1. That is so funny! My little guy does similar things, we were with a family friend one day and he was holding himself. So the friend asked if he needed to go to the bathroom. His reply was "no, I just like to touch it." Oh My! Just one more of the many moments that make me want to bury myself in a hole!
