What are some of your great parenting moments? Good, bad, embarassing or otherwise? I'm new at this whole thing - I'd love to hear some good stories!
My daughter somehow managed to remove her "poop" diaper and began playing in her "poop". She managed to get it all over her sheets, bumber pad, blankets and herself, including her head. I was so grossed out I had to have my wife take care of the situation.
Just think, she may be doing the same thing for me in another 30 years. ;)

Of course, we teach her to share, we NEVER snatch things from her etc. Has nothing to do with us. That's just crap she learns from watching the other kids. Especially when that behavior is the exception and not the rule, the humiliation is not complete until someone's mother scowls at you.
Embarrasing, let's see...
2.5 year old Daughter: Guess what?
Grandma: What, little pumpkin?
2.5 year old Daughter: Catt Butt!
Grandma with a face like she sucked a lemon: Oh... my!
Then she follows up with grandma butt, grandpa butt, mommy butt, and so on. Yeah, yeah, I taught her the cat butt thing. But the grandma butt thing she invented on her own. lol
You know you're a parent when your single friends stop hanging out with you because you're regularly using words like "potty," "boogey," or "stinky." (or yummy :) Also, when they realize you can't drop everything to jaunt to the mountains (to the beach, to the wherever) with a one-hour notice.
But parenthood is worth the headache a thousand times over when those little arms go around your neck, hug you tight and your sweet child tells you she loves you so much. And would you please just read 3 more books and sing that same silly song again?
...you feel good about changing a dirty diaper.
...your two year old accidently pokes you in the eye and you tell her it's okay (I've got a second eye).
...you stare into a sick child's eyes and wish it was you that was sick and not her.
...you get a smile on your face when someone screams Daddy's home!
family legend has it that my first visit to my pediatrician involved a direct hit on his eyeglasses.
Then Pow shes got you! Sinks her fangs into your arm and just hangs there, its like trying to remove a clam getting her off, shes drawn blood etc in the past.
Weird thing is she only does it to people when im around and she always grins at me after doing it.
Needless to say im not a popular vistor to my brother and his wifes house.

On a lighter note, my daughter, now 5, said something really funny at the air show last fall. There was a cool WWII fighter with a buxom blonde painted on the side - she was topless. My daughter saw her and said, "Look! she's got mommy bumps!" We laughed so hard. ;)
