As a parent, you can do quite a few things to stop your kids from embarrassing you. But sometimes, situations are out of hand. That means kids are gonna embarrass their parents.
Seriously, those kids are wizards.
For instance, there’s a mom who recently sports some seriously red cheeks after she got an awkward text from her neighbor, informing her of her toddler’s naked whereabouts.
Okay, let’s back up for a second because this situation definitely needs some context.
As Popsugar reported, mom-of-two Jeni Boysen from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was recently in need of a shower and thought her 2-year-old son, Dax, would be fine on his own for a few minutes.
Like most busy moms, she needed to squeeze in basic hygiene where she could.
Dax was diapered and seated in front of the television, perfectly content to watch Peppa Pig while his poor mamma dipped into the shower.
As it turns out, she was sorely mistaken.
Shortly after leaving Dax alone, Jeni got a text message from one of her neighbors.
This mom was stunned to learn that her son had somehow shed his diaper, and was now hiding naked in the upstairs window for all the neighborhood to see.
Oh, and just in case there was any doubt, the neighbor made sure to include photographic evidence.
Of course, Jeni was able to find humor in the embarrassing situation, because what else can you do but laugh at life’s strange little moments?
“Ya know,” she wrote on Facebook, “sometimes you think you’re doing okay at life and then you get a message like this from a neighbor. I just cried I laughed so hard.”
“This is exactly the laughter I needed tonight,” she added.
Since sharing the awkward text exchange on February 3, Jeni’s post has since gone viral, amassing nearly 40,000 likes and 146,000 shares.
In the comments, amused Facebook users are letting this poor mamma know that she’s not alone — their kids are weird AF too.
“LOL this is hilarious!” one person wrote. “Sounds like something one of my boys would do!”
Another added, “I have one of these, my kid too!” prompting Jeni to quite accurately reply, “My kids may as well be nudists.”
