My friends laughed uproariously and loved my parents, but all I wanted to do was slink off into a tiny and very invisible corner to hide.
Fast forward a zillion years later to those modern teenage years of my son who happened to be a track and football star, with a ton of friends.
All your kids' friends thought you were the cool mom, right? (lol) My son NEVER understood that, and to make matters worse, if they danced, I happily jumped in, to the embarrassment of my son.
You'd think I would have learned from my parents, right? But I couldn't seem to stop as my feet glided across the floor every single time. And every single time, my son turned the music off once I started dancing, hoping I'd get the message to just leave the room.
The other thing he really hated - I couldn't give relationship advice to any of his friends, no matter how many times they asked.(They asked a lot) It was only safe for me to say hello and goodbye, but only if he was in the room. (lol) Apparently, he didn't trust me to not break out into The Electric Slide.
Oh, I almost forgot. He didn't really want anyone to know he knew me, so other than a half-hearted wave, I was pretty much ignored if we ever showed up to the mall at the same time.
Inquiring minds are wondering if you've ever done something that had your kids cringing inside, and wishing you could just leave the face of the earth? Did you do something so over the top as an adult that you embarrassed the entire family?
