We have done storytime exactly one other time and it was because we accidentally stumbled upon it when we went to the library to play with the toys and get a book. I felt guilted into going into the story time room so that she could experience it. I didn't love it. It is just a bit too too cheerful for me. Every single adult in the room, including myself has these stupid fake smiles plastered on their face while they sit there acting out the itsy bistro spider and the kids spin in circles and ignore them.
That being said, Myra liked it, so I felt obligated to go again today. Good Mommy, right?! Ha...read on.
So, here were are, sitting in this room with all of the other Moms and toddlers, and the librarian is reading Jamberry. Myra is standing up half paying attention to it while I try to draw her into the story by taking about berries.
All of a sudden, out of nowhere, Myra lifts up her shirt, and yells, as loud as she can, "BOOBIES!"
No f'in joke.
Because someone in the next county may not have heard her, she then pointed at her boobies and said, with a very proud smile, "MYRA BOOBIES."
Keep in mind, this was at the library.
I seriously wanted to the floor to open up and swallow me whole. Of course everyone stared, but no one laughed. I am not sure if it is because they were disgusted with us or if it was because I was not laughing and they didn't want to make me feel bad. I am going to choose to believe the latter.
Right after the boobie incident
I literally just sat there in shock. I mean, what the hell does one do in a situation like that?!
Thankfully after that, she started to enjoy herself because they sang songs and played with instruments. That distracted her from her boobies. By that time, I had gotten over the shock and was trying not to start laughing out loud because, let's face it, it's pretty damn funny.
And all of this happened before I had my coffee. Sigh. I guess that is what I get for being overenthusiastic. I think I am going to stick to Target and Kroger next week...
How have your kids humiliated you in public?!
