I am that mother. You know me. You might have a mom like me. Maybe you are like me.
The Bear is pretty adorable. Sometimes though, he does things that I know will completely embarrass him in the future. I am presented with the choice of quietly moving on and respecting him as a person. OR I can whip out my camera to document it.
We were hanging out in my (and hubby's) bathroom. By hanging out, I mean I was getting ready and The Bear was unrolling all the toilet paper. I wasn't paying complete attention. I knew he was unrolling toilet paper and making a mess. I was just handling it and trying to get ready faster than my normal 5.2 second average.
I look over and see this:
To which I am completely mortified that my son is playing with tampons. (Not mortified enough to snatch them away and not take a picture, but you get the idea)
The Bear finally looks up at me and offers me one.
I am fully aware of the ramifications of this post and am willing to pay the therapy bills in 15 years. Right now, I just think it's funny though.
