I wonder if one day this might be funny...

...because, right now, it's not and I am just embarrassed.

Monday morning as I was getting ready to go, the kids were playing in our room. They have two drawers that have things they can play in by my bedside. One of the drawers, however, contains MY personal things I like having by my bed. Of course, some of those things are more personal than others...

As I was putting on my makeup I noticed that they were in the wrong drawer and pulling all sorts of things out. I noticed they were also playing quietly and not pulling on my legs and so I did nothing.

I remember saying to myself "I really need to check and see what they were doing exactly and what they were playing with...", but in the midst of trying to get everyone out the door for school I forgot.

As I was picking Jackson up from school, he started cleaning out his cubby with LOTS of random items. My mind wasn't totally in it as I was just collecting them all for him as he was putting them in my open hand.

Monday will be known as the day my THREE year old son went to school with a condom in his pocket!

Yeah, read that again...

I am mortified.

thanks hannah!

i am a little over it now after rehashing with the ladies night out group! they were rolling. i figured i should just laugh too...

i was able to make another funny out of it when they asked what the teacher said.

although she said nothing to me about it in reality...

wouldn't it be funny if she had said, "yea, you really should use those more often!" [after having jax in her class :)] just kidding!

Oh what a story!! You will laugh one day (you probably already are) but I know this to be a fact...

Similar beginning: Kids playing upstairs, in the drawer next to he bed, etc. I am downstairs greeting my mother and her (at the time) fiance who had just arrived for dinner at our house. It is only moments later that my 2 year old daughter comes downstairs, gives the fiance a big hug and hands him a banana flavored condom. It had been a joke gift from a friend because I hate banana flavored things. The joke being that sometimes you are desperate enough...(I feel like I am TMI-ing big time here. Hi! Nice to meet you!)

Thankfully the fiance is a delightfully spirited man and he just laughed so hard he had to sit down.

Of course my MOM really wished she didn't know that much about her daughter's "love life."

The older your kids get, the more they will embarrass you...just get ready for it.

I think this is classically hilarious. I mean, you saw how hard I laughed when you told me at mommy's night out.

Trust me, every mom has these moments!
