Most Embarrassing Moment


See this kid? He looks cute and innocent right? Well, on Sunday morning we went to church and sat with Charles and Erica who were visiting. The kids were being just normal kids and behaving for the most part. Matthew pulled out all the charms for this young couple that were sitting behind us, he was grinning and chattering at them for most of the meeting. Zack was sitting up on the stand as usual with the rest of the bishopric. We were sitting about midway from the front of the chapel.

Nothing was out of the ordinary until the last speaker got up and started giving his talk. I was on the end of the row, Matthew was in front of my legs playing with cars on a hymn book. I leaned over to ask Joshua to quit ripping the paper off all of the crayons, when Matthew escaped up to the stand were his dad was. I don't let my kids go wandering around during sacrament meeting! This is a big no no for us! Matthew wouldn't sit still on Zack's lap so Zack told him to go back and sit with Mommy. Matthew got down from Zack's lap and walks off the stand about 3 feet from the stairs. I ask him to come back and sit with me, where he says "no" and turns around to head back up the stairs...

His little pants start to fall down his little waste as he gets back up the stairs. He gets to the top of the stairs with his little bum facing everyone in the congregation. He bends over and pulls his pants down to his ankles. Basically mooning everyone with his diaper still on of course! The speaker laughs, as well as the rest of the congregation, and tells Zack he's got a little problem over here. Zack gets up and brings Matthew to me. We were both very embarrassed, I was at least as red as a tomato. I went out in the foyer with Matthew for the rest of the meeting! We had several people come up to us after the meeting thanking us for a good laugh!

Ha ha! That's just awesome. He's definitely Zack's kid. I'm just saying! Nothing to be embarrassed about. He's still in the cute stage ;)

Glad his diaper was still on. It really is a good thing that you are among friends so that down the road it will become a humorous moment when remembered :o) (can't help but smile now)

I know it's embarrassing for you...but I can't help but laugh. I'm sure some of the congregation was probably happy to have a little entertainment, especially if it was the last speaker.

That would be terribly embarrassing as a parent. But I would have loved to be there as a bystander. LOL. Good stories. Just think, it could be worse. He could be 5 years older and choosing to moon the meeting. Hopefully you will be laughing soon. :)
