Every Thursday afternoon I would take my 2 boys (4yrs and 9 yrs) to swimming lessons. This one particular Thursday after swimming we needed to stop into Woolworths to grab a few things. Anyone with little kids knows how much can go wrong in a shopping centre. After my eldest son was almost hit by a car, we managed to get inside safely. My 4 year old son was walking along the side of the trolley when I turned around he had disappeared. A parents worst night mare is for their child to go missing. I kept calm and new he mustn’t of gone too far. After all he was next to me less than 30 seconds ago, right? I started hearing an elderly gentlemen laughing a few aisles up and over heard him say ‘”you getting in some early practice ay buddy?”. As I walked closer my heart started pounding and very quick thoughts of what I mind find where racing through my head. “Has he exposed himself, omg hope he hasn’t wee’d all over the cornflakes, hope he hasn’t started a painting with the numerous spreads, omg what if his stripping!” I quickly caught up to him and had to stop a moment to figure out what had just happened. I was relieved to find him fully clothed. The elderly gentlemen asked if he was mine. I reluctantly said “yes, what’s he done?’ Looking at my little boy who looked at me so innocently he said “I was swimming with my chin to my chest and all those ladies bums got in the way when I took a breath!” Yes, he had been saying chin to your chest whilst accidentally slapping random ladies bums and his “taking a breath” looks like kissing lips. I apologised and got out of there pretty quickly lol.

  • How embarrassing!!! I can imagine you had to explain to him somehow that he isn’t allowed to do that – that was probably difficult too.
    I can see the funny side of it – but I wouldn’t have when it happened.


  • Lol that is so funny, bet you wanted the floor to open up and eat you


  • Classic! That’s a great story,


  • Children have a way of finding peak embarrassment!

    • Oh they sure do lol especially when their embarrassment setting has developed yet.
