Kids were born to embarrass their parents!

I can laugh about this now, but at the time, I was mortified. A few weeks ago I was REALLY sick. I was visiting the potty frequently. During one of these visits, the phone rang. Reece yelled, "Mom, I'm going to get the phone!" I yelled back, "Whatever you do, DON'T tell them I'm in the bathroom!!!" This is the conversation I hear from Reece's end. "Hello? No, he's not here, he is at work. My mom? No, she is on the toilet." I yelled "REECE!?!?!?!" Then he says, "Oh, wait, I think she is done." I was done, and when I grabbed the phone, I hung it up. I couldn't bear talk to whomever it was, even if it was a telemarketer.

"SHE IS ON THE TOILET??? Are you kidding me Reece?" This is what I said to him. He burst into tears, saying, "You just said don't say you are in the bathroom." Where is the common sense in this? Anyways, I had to apologize to Reece and let him know that I wasn't really mad, just embarrassed, and explain that you NEVER again tell anyone I'm in the bathroom OR on the toilet.

He was just following your instructions - I love it. He's probably thinking "What's the big deal about being on the toilet?"

I wonder what age that awareness sets in - when you won't let anyone see you even enter a bathroom, let alone talk about it.

I've reached the age where I absolutely don't care anymore. I take a water pill for high bp at 6am every morning. At 10, I have to go, and there'd better not be anyone in "my" stall at work.

Great post!
