Old Lady Diapers and Tampon Stocking Checker Boys

Yesterday I was at the store with my two boys. (Right there you should know this post is going in a bad direction.) So.... I walked over to the "feminine isle". My 7 year old son in his loud voice (why does he have to talk so loud all of the time?) said "Mom, why are we on the old lady diaper isle?" (A crowd is growing) "Um, son, these aren't old lady diapers." He ignores me and his eyes get big as I put one in the cart. "MOM" he continues "You wear old lady diapers?" (why is the checker boy always stocking the tampons?). "No son, these are special things for girls, and we will talk about it later". (The crowd of people start to giggle). This is where my dear five year old chimes in. "Yeah, I've tried those diapers on before, but they kind of fit funny so I put them on my arms and made floaties for the bath... only they don't float."

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! Why? Why? WHY do I take my boys out in public places?

My six year old doesn't understand the pads either. He thought they were diapers too! ROFL! I dont know which is worse to share with him..."No mama doesnt have a problem urinating on herself, she just leaks blood spontaneously." hmmmmm which way do I go, which way do I go?! LOL

I have a picture somewhere that I was sent last year of slippers made of pads. It's hilarious! I'll try to find it. Might make a good craft project...

That is too funny! When my, now 8 year old, was 3 he pulled a tampon out of my purse while I was writing a check for my groceries and loudly asked, " Do you put this in your butt?" Seriously I didn't even know how to respond. I guess it is just in their nature to obsess over all things related to the potty! My 4 year old thinks girls only poop because they sit when they pee. You know, now that I think about it, maybe I need to shut the bathroom door more often!!

Okay, so you know how people say that they were laughing hard, but they really weren't? Well yeah. I WAS laughing HARD. This cracks me up!

But I have to ask concerning the floaty comment... "to which YOU say?" :)

I take my children into public in hopes that someday they will learn to conduct themselves in a relatively normal and respectable fashion....or at least without embarassing me too badly. Maybe that's why you do too? It will happen someday K, won't it?? LOL

Your story made me hysterical with laughter. So did you have the tampon talk then?

Ahhh, the facts of life.

Kimmie said...

Wow, you should have taped your store conversation...I am pretty sure that you could have sold it and made some fast cash ;-)

Think you need to do a little lesson on floating devices...before you get on an airplane and the conversation repeats itself-only it will be LOUDER, as you are in a tin can ;-)

Kimmie,
Great advice, I think I'll have that little talk before we fly to visit Grandma this Spring. ~K

Emily said...

no words....none. That kid (s) is hilarious. (to us fellow blog readers that is)

Stacey said...

Diapers--shoulda gone with the flow (pun totally intended). You know, just think of the hours on end of giggles those boys provided the bystanders. I think that's worth something. Right?

Terri said...

Should I be thankful I have girls?

Gayle said...

See, I can't visit you because if we get our kids together we might die of embarassment!

Melany aka Supermom said...

That is so so so funny. This is why I'm thankful I use the Diva Cup

Shari said...

I think God does that to us to keep us humble. Did you know that tampons make great rocket shooters? :)

Mrs. Darling said...

Oh that is too funny. I wonder what the stock boy thought. I got such a kick out of this!

Halfmoon Girl said...

Yes, well, my 4 year old thinks the tampons I carry in my purse are pens. That is much better than diapers. I love these stories- i can so relate.

Fee said...

Hehehehe..... very funny!
When Hubby was 6 he'd steal his moms sanitary towels to make eyemasks for he and his friends. It finished off their cowboy and Indian costumes beautifully!!!!!!

That's so funny. I guess we've all had moments like that and can relate. I've enjoyed visiting your blog. You have a great sense of humor and writing style.

God bless,
Tammy
