True Story Tuesday - Steamy Fail

As usual, Tuesday has snuck up on me – but alas, I did something this week that merits a brand new True Story Tuesday!

If you’d like to join in (and please, please do!) we’d love to hear your hilarious, amazing, miraculous, outrageous, and (mostly) true tale!

Just copy the code under the TST picture in the right sidebar, paste it in your post, and come back to link up for some comment love!

 

I cannot believe I share such a sense of familiarity with y’all that I’m about to share this horrifyingly embarrassing story.  I’m nice enough to say I hope it’s never happened to you :)

 

STEAMY FAIL

 

Us moms know what a rare treat an unchaperoned shower is, right?  And this has been a previously blogged about topic – trust me when I say I know

So in my rush to hit the showers, I realize that my planned outfit is missing an important piece of clothing.

I ask Mr. Daddy to grab me a pair of undies (and ladies, you know that is playing with fire already, right?  Cuz you KNOW that man is going to bring back the most unpractical undergarment you own, riiight?)

 

Anyhoo, I jump in the shower and get to work shampooing.  (Okay, is it just me, or does SHAM-POOING sound funny to anyone else?  Just me?  Nevermind).

Out of the corner of my eye, I see a shadow move on the other side of the shower curtain.

I do what every wife does… I suck in my gut, angle sideways and start rinsing my hair.  I am convinced that he’ll try to startle me (unsuccessfully for once!) and I’m hoping he won’t notice the extra 18 pounds I’ve been packing.

Except… that I’m not naturally alluring by nature.  And when I attempt to be anything but my silly pudgy self, something always occurs to ensure that my true colors are on parade.

Which means that as I tilt back to rinse my hair, of course the shampoo goes straight into my eyes.  (Well, DUH!)

And I am desperately trying to rinse them out, but my eyes are instinctively (and alluringly, remember) scrunched tight.

I keep sucking in and tilt back further.

Which sends a cascade of water straight.up.my.nose.

Oh yeah – you do know how impossible it is to keep sucking in while coughing and choking and posing sideways with your eyes completely shut?

When I finally gave up in complete and utter exasperation, I gingerly opened my eyes to see:

Oh yes folks, he was totally cracking up at his hapless, choking, red-eyed (and shriekingly uncl0thed, ugh) mother.

As if that weren’t enough?  He looked me right in the eye and said,

 

I (mumble mumble) go pee-pee!

 

And remember how us deaf people rely on context clues?  His hands on the snap of his pants, my inability to lipread the difference between “I hafta go pee-pee” and “I HAD to go pee-pee”…

Let’s just say that I’m living in denial of the possibility that while his mother was dancing around, gasping for air, scrubbing her eyeballs, (and let’s not forget sucking her tummy in and angling sideways), my boy may have possibly made a contribution to the hot shower.

 

One for the baby book?

So link away!  Any fun memories you have of embarrassing the tar out of your parents???

And while we’re at it, I’d like to send a special shout-out to our globetrotting buddy Julie (Foursons).  I believe we’re about to witness some major bloggy drama – seeing as Mr. Daddy promised to UNFOLLOW (yes, I said that cursed word – that kryptonite to our Oh So Humble Leader) King Julien if she dared to attend a Yankees game and brag about it.

Enter Facebook:

 

darn yankee

Oopsie!

 

I love you Jules, but we’re gonna have to talk about your Yankee and Nikon ways :)

So link up for some great reading – hope to see your post!

Oh no he didnt?!?!?! Really? Please tell me he didnt! Oh that would freak me out.

Althought I must say that I side with Mr Daddy on the Stinkies, I mean Yankees, bit. I am fine with going to a game, but did she have to wear the hat?

LOL! What a story! Too funny :)

I'm following you back now, thanks for entering my Pear Tree giveaway! Good luck! :)

That is so funny! Gotta love little boys! At least he has the cuteness factor going for him! ;)

Dyann said...

Or maybe that is one to be blogged and forgotten. You know how people 'remember' things that they've heard about numerous times? Well, Itty Bit may not want to 'remember' seeing Mommy in all her, uh, glory.

City girl turned Country Girl said...

OH MY GOODNESS~!!!! You crack me up!!

Really....Are you a Nikon hater?! I'm of no opinion about baseball but NO Nikon?!

He & Me + 3 said...

Oh no. That face says it all though. Stunt Man used the shower the other night in the middle of the night as the toilet. Yep, Someone left the curtain open and he thought it looked like the toilet I guess. We always have to wake up when he does...you never know where the bathroom will be.
What you don't know won't hurt you...right?
Poor Julie...give her camera a break...I own one of those :)

Kmama said...

LOL! Itty Bit is such a cutie.

I hate shower mishaps. It's probably mean of me to say better you than me, isn't it? LOL

Kari said...

That is hilarious. I am laughing so hard. You know, I have not taken a shower or gone to the bathroom in private for 5 years now. I always have an audience. I might feel lonely once all that stops :o)

Beth Zimmerman said...

Oh that was too funny! That kid is definitely a keeper!

Emily said...

haha! You should know that boys really will pee anywhere. ;)

Alicia W. said...

Hahahahaha! This is great and thanks for the laugh. :)

I love Mimi. She's always got my back. :)

Itty Bit cracks me up. I would have had to start my shower all over again though. LOL

Muthering Heights said...

LOLOLOL, oh no! So much for an unchaperoned shower!!!

Michelle Pixie said...

I am sorry I am still dreaming about shampooing in a shower all by my lonesome.... I sure hope he didn't pee in the shower! Bwahahahahaha I guess that is one of those things I will miss out on with three girls. ;-)

HeatherOz said...

Hahahahaha! I can't stop! Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!
Oh, that's funny! Some day we will miss our unchaperoned bathroom moments! I think!

Icy BC said...

Oh my goodness, that's so funny! But I have to say you're quite coordinated with posing sideways, sucking in your tummy, shampooing and all..

Mom of M&Ms said...

Okay.. I am gonna need depends if I keep reading your blog..which I may not be able to do as I noticed the negative connation towards nikon users....Let's not let that happen again shall we??? :)

K- floortime lite mama said...
