Mortified


Ben didnt sleep much last night. I couldnt get him to sleep until 2 and even then he kept waking up. So it was a bad night. Which of course set off my morning. I didnt get into the shower until later. But since the kids didnt have school today it wasnt a big deal. I got Ben down for a nap, and the other 3 went in to backyard to play, so it was the perfect timing. As soon as I got out of the shower and hung my towel to dry, I turned around and standing there was my Toast and his neighbor friend. Unsure how to make this less awkward, I calmly told Ty that he and his friend needed to go downstairs and back outside. Nobody moved in what seemed like an eternity, so I jumped back into the shower until the shock wore off the kids enough for them to move it back outside. Now my kids have seen me naked before. Unfortunately thats just the life of a mother- nothing is sacred- my showers are commonly interupted with them opening up the shower door to tattle on one another. But never before have they brought a friend upstairs to do so. I actually didnt even know the neighbors had come to play. SO I was a bit mortified. I think I need to go tell this kids mom, but I have never even met her. This is gonna be awkward. "Hi- I am your neighbor. your kids came over to play to today and they saw me naked." How the fetch do I explain this without it seeming like I am a nudist? I havent been this embarrassed for a while. Good heavens.

Kimmy! Oh, man...I'm not sure what to tell you! LOL! I would for sure tell him Mom. I'm sure she'll get a good laugh out of it! As Mothers we know this kinda stuff just happens sometimes!
At least it wasn't your brother-in-law!

Oh man. LOL. I'm so sorry! For things like this there's really no avoiding the embarassment of talking to her, so my advice is "Quick like a Band-Aid." Just get it over with. Good luck!!

Oh man that is nuts. This sounds horrible, but at least you are cute and tiny, not that it makes the horror and embarassed any less for you, but that image will prob. be in the neighbor boys head for the rest of his life, so at least it won't scar him the way seeing someone like me might. Goodluck tellin gthe mom, I would def. do it quick and get it over with otherwise he could say something about seeing you naked and his mom might FREAK if she doesn't understand teh situation, if you tell her she will prob. get a good laugh.

Ok, this is too funny. Had a similar experience. Only the boy was 15. at least I was semi clothed. I was up early getting ready for my run. My oldest son was getting ready for early morning seminary. He turned on the TV at about 80 decibals and I just knew he was going to wake the entire household. I go running into the family room in just the g's with a bra on and yell in a loud whisper, turn that thing down. Then I turn around and there is standing his friend in the foyer. I just looked at him and said hello Adam, and then ran back into the bedroom. I was mortified. I bet that neither he or my son even remember but I do.
