I joined in a party dance at the year 6 leavers disco. Clearly I am excruciatingly embarrassing, so much so that we had to leave immediately, an hour before it ended.

Any other totally embarrassing Mums showing up their kids out there who want to share their tales?

No tales myself but that will certainly be something to add to any future speeches! grin

I talk cod-street to my teens sometimes. Terribly norty funny

They don't much care for middle aged speak either. Cool beans, anyone?

What is cool beans all about? DH says it all the time!

I believe it is a parent's duty to embarrass their children on every possible occasion. I've always done my best to fulfil this obligation.

I can embarrass my Capital Radio, pop-loving 15yo DD just by winding down the windows in the car and playing Rammstein, or Iron Maiden, or Linkin Park, etc. At some volume grin

I used to have to meet DD round the corner from her choir rehearsal as my car was just so embarrassing! I can't remember if it was the Morris Minor or Mini Clubman - quite a few years ago…..

It would appear I am neither "sick" nor "safe" innit tho.

The glorious irony is that the Nicki Grahamesque flounce out was noticed by the entire church hall while my "embarrassing" dance moves ne're raised an eyebrow.

Singing along to the radio in the car

Ds is 2 1/2 hmm

Not me, but my flipping mother turned up to my sports day when I was at school wearing her old pe kit (she'd attended the same school) and running spikes ready for the parents race. She thought it was hilarious. I still cringe remembering it.

Oh, and also on my 16th birthday we had a posh meal out with parents and all my friends and at one point she stood up and rapped 'go sausage it's your birthday' in the style of 50cent.

I really should go nc.

I think it is our duty in life to embarrass our DC.

I have lost count of the number of hats my DD has told me I can't wear when we are out together. Especially the really cunning one that folds up like a fan when you are not wearing it - I am rather fond of that one. Yet it seems the few hats she does approve of she ends up borrowing and, dammit, they look better on her than me. Until she loses them

Well, how 'about dem apples????
Nope, I have no idea what if means either but Ds says it so it must be cool.
Always always shout something like " love you, mummy's little soldier' at the school gates.
Kiss them in public.
Try and hold their hands while walking along.

Singing along to the Mr Tumble CD - DD2.4 "stop that mummy!"

Gee tough crowd!!

marmaladegranny Were you my mum? Except we never had a mini, that would have been cool!

Our Morris Minor was a piss green Traveller ... used to hate it, everyone else's parents had Manta GTEs! grin Mind you, 30 years on I still have it blush, and my DS loves it grin
