Embarrassing Moment #1

I would like the record to show that I love how chatty the boys have become. It’s fun to hear them point things out, ask questions, chatter with each other and repeat each other. That being said, the chattiness resulted in embarrassing moment number 1 for this mom on Saturday. I say “number 1” because I’m sure there will be many, many more to follow in the next few years alone.

Saturday morning I decided to take Chase grocery shopping with me. It had been months since I’d taken one of the boys with me, and last time they were content to just sit in the cart in silence and look around the store. This time was vastly different. Chase was chatting the whole time in the car, and then excitedly pointing things out in the stores. It was fun interacting with him… until we got to Aldi.

Let me back up a bit though and set the stage… Several weeks ago Tyler was sitting on the toilet and Nick was trying to encourage him to poop. Nick thought it would be helpful if he had Jackson and Chase form a little cheering section for Tyler. He gave them each a toy microphone and started having them yell simultaneously “1, 2, 3, Tyler Poop!”. This went on for 20 minutes or so and no, Tyler did not poop.
Even now, when Tyler is on the toilet either Jackson or Chase will walk past the door and say “1, 2, Tyler Poop!”. Yes, they dropped the “3”. So do you see where this is going?
At Aldi the shopping carts are all chained together and in order to get a cart you have to deposit a quarter (which you get back when you return the cart). As we were walking through Aldi, Chase looked down and decided the little chain hanging off the handle looked like a great microphone. He picked it up, held it to his mouth and yelled “1, 2, Tyler Poop!”.

Yeah. As I tried to shush him, he did it 2 or 3 more times. Finally he stopped and just grinned at me. As we were just finishing checking out he did it again. The cashier and guy in line behind me looked a little confused and like they wanted to laugh, but they held back. As soon as I got to the car I called Nick to tell him HIS son had just embarrassed me, and we both had a good laugh.
