TWQ: Awkward Questions By Children

This week, we look at what children have said...

Have you as a child ever said anything that was potentially embarrassing, (though you didn't know then) or have you heard a child say something that made you feel awkward or difficult to answer?

This is my answer:

One I can remember most is asking my mother about women and why their were differences between men and them. I can't remember her answer, which is probably a good thing!

Now it's over to you...

Cool WQ, Jean-Luc...and it's nice to be back in the blogosphere after a hectic few weeks....

When my godson's mother was getting married for the second time to the man he saw as Daddy, he turned in my arms and whispered loudly:

'Why is Mummy marrying Daddy?'

er.......um.....

At two years old in frilly dress, white tights and patent leather shoes standing in the window of Saks Fifth Avenue department store,I pointed outdoors and said, "Mommy look at the big f*ck!"

I obviously thought I was saying truck, and all the snooty women in the store recommended my mom for mother of the year!

But, I suppose I am still the same person! LOL

Michele sent me!

Star said...

Having had three children and, having been one myself, I am certain that happened numerous times. However at this exact moment I am coming up blank. I will assuredly think of something in the car on my way to work and I'll come back and tell you, Until then, Michele sent me.

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Gee, I can't recall anything about me as a child asking an embarassing question. What I can remember was my son and niece who took a shower nude together. That was when they were 2 years old. My son asked me why niece had hers cut while his wasn't.

Here from Michele's today, and right this moment stuck for memories!

i only remember 1 of my own kids asking me why i didn't have any knickers on once quite loudly in a restauarant.
it was a hot day and well for whatever reason i was pantless... and as she was sitting on my lap and trying to tickle me she discovered the awful truth.
i gnored her and offered her some ice gream. it did the trick.

I remember when I was in the indoor pool at the YMCA with my twins, who were about four or so, a LARGE woman got into the pool. One of my girls was about four feet away and said in a very clear, loud voice: "Mama, that lady is REALLY fat!"

I was mortified.

There's no end to the embarrassing questions that can be asked by children. My daughter once asked us what a 'modot' was...a seemingly inocuous question, until she started describing it. When she did it was clear that she meant 'dildo'. Thankfully my wife got that one...I don't think I could've kept a straight face!

colleen said...

The first time my son saw an African American person in a doctors waiting room, he blurted out incredulously, "Mum those people are black!"

Michele sent me.

Bonnie said...

I am Native American and the first time my ex's 8-year old travelled with us to my hometown she asked, "Dad, why are there no teepees here?"

Hi! Michele sent me.

Dave said...

Hi visiting from Michele's today and quite incapable of thinking of something funny!

Radioactive Jam said...

Since my mother is Jewish I am too. I "always" knew this, though it didn't mean anything to me for a long time. I was probably less than ten years old, and once - only once - I came home from school and complained to my mom about someone having cheated me out of something. Except I said the person "jewed" me. It was the only time I remember my mother immediately snapping into Dangerously Angry Mode.

She told me in no uncertain terms to never. Ever. Use that expression again, not around her or anyone else. Suddenly I understood some things that hadn't previously been connected in my head. I felt embarrassed and ashamed, as much for not recognizing the slur as for speaking it. Good lesson, though.

ribbiticus said...

i think one of the questions you prepare years for and still get stumped is when this dreaded question comes up.."where do babies come from and how do they get there?" :)

TNChick said...

Oh my - with my kids and their words I've been embarrassed more than once!

I recall one - when my son was about 3 - we were in Best Buy and this heavy-set lady was walking by.

My son said "She has fat titties" really loud! OMGosh I about died. I have NO idea where he got that from - all I know if he knew what fat meant and he knew was titties were becasue that what he called them on himself. LOL

The lady heard him and laughed... I apologized and she said "Oh, it's OK, I thought it was funny, too" and went on to say he was just being observent like all kids are without holding back his thoughts... I wanted to crawl into a hole.

Ciera said...

I could...nevermind....

Hmmm, one of the kids on the bus said something just the other day that was 'I can't believe she said that', but of course my memory has lost it.

As for myself...I'll never forget the look on my Mom's face when I asked her what the f-word meant...or the day I was asking her what tse-tse flies were and she thought I was talking about male genitals. Oh ... my ... gosh!!!

Barbara said...

I was at some indoor playland with my son when he was two years old. I was ready to pay admission, which was on a tiered scale by the age of the children, the older the child, the more it cost. When I got to the cashier I told her my son was two, he took that moment in time to start insisting he was three. I told him, no, you are two. I don't think the cashier believed me.

You're sending some great ones here! Love them!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

For some reason I cannot think of a thing! What's my name? I guess it's too late for me..I need tp go to bed! (lol)
Here from Michele this A.M., my dear Captain!

Daydreamer of Oz said...

My next door neighbour was picking on me & I let her keep doing it...my mom said 'the next time she does it, you better hit her cause if you don't when you come home I'll hit you' (she knew I wouldn't do it otherwise)
So of course I hit her...her mother comes over saying 'are you aware that she hit my daughter?' Mom looks at me with that feigned shock that you learn as a parent & says 'why would you do that?' I said 'because you told me to!'
I think she could have fallen over with embarassment poor thing hahaha
Awesome question too :)

sage said...

Yes to both questions... but do I have to tell, they're too embarassing... here from Michele's.

utenzi said...

Michele sent me, Jean-Luc.

Oddly enough most of my embarrassing memories in this regard go the other way. Adults, when I was a kid, saying things that they were sure I'd not understand since I was a kid, but I did. I think adults in general forget just how early kids figure out some of the sexual concepts--even if they're not entirely right about the details.

Paige said...

I, like some others can not think of anything. Even though I'm sure it has happened to me & by me & most likely more than once. thanks for commenting at my place. I am of course honored by your high rank. {smiles}

Shannon said...

My 7yo has asked a couple times "how the baby gets in your belly." I've given some lame, sketchy answer and he's seemed satisfied, but I know that won't last long. Like utenzi, I suspect he knows more than he's letting on, so the next time he asks I will likely go into a bit more detail.

Michele sent me, although I am a regular lurker. ;-)

Karen said...

Yeah, mine's a doozy! My mom tried to give me the facts of life talk and I assured her that I knew everything already. (I knew nothing.) She asked if I had any questions and I said: "Yes, what are hemorroids?", thinking they must have something to do with sex because nobody wanted to talk about them. A-W-K-W-A-R-D!

Karen said...

Oops, I forgot to say that Michele sent me! Great question, by the way!

Courtney said...

My three-year old nephew, in the midst of a temper tantrum, yelled at my friend Todd (who is flamboyantly gay), "Todd, you are a woman!"

Fortunately, we all nearly wet our pants laughing, but that could have been a bad thing in other circumstances.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Great answers, my friends! I suspect there were even better ones there, but some of you were too embarassed to tell them!

mrsmogul said...

I asked my mom about sex even though I knew all about it. I just wanted to hear her answer. She was washing the dishes and she automatically stopped when I asked the question. She paused for a moment then answered, "wait til you're married." DAMN!!!

Lori said...

My daughter is 3...So it's just really getting good...LOL.....But one day not too long ago....We was getting ready to go to the store and I always ask my daughter you got your panties on??....She wants to do everything herself these days...including getting dressed....and she said yes....Well when we get to the store and we're in the checkout leaving....I'm looking at a magazine while waiting....and her and hubby is talking...She popps out...it seemed extremly loud....Daddy you got your panties on??....LOL....It was too funny...The lady in front of us chuckled.....and hubby turned red...Priceless!!!

Have a great day!!!

Nettie said...

I can't reemmber a specific time, but I was fond of questions in general...
