Everyone has a story about being embarrassed by their mother when they were younger. Some are worse than others, of course.
(For a story about how I embarrassed my own teenager click here.)
My personal embarrassing memories are pretty tame.
For example, I was extremely mortified by my mother when I was in junior high school because she would drop me off RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE MALL instead of hiding down the street like any respectable parent should, thus exposing to the world that I, in fact, was reliant on parents for transportation and not a fully independent unit at the ripe age of 13.
Obviously, I was a dumb spoiled kid. Don’t even get me started on the time my grandma picked me up from school and actually WAVED from her car. Where people could SEE her! Shudder.
Anyways, like I said, my embarrassment was not so bad.
But I have a friend who was in seventh grade when her mother announced to everyone they knew, “My little girl is a Woman now!”
She says she still hasn’t forgiven her mom for that one.
But I think the kid that wins Most Embarrassing Mom, hands-down, is this one:
You remember this mother and son from Time magazine a couple of years ago?
This kid should be, what, in kindergarten or first grade now? Imagine when he gets to middle school.
