So, when a Reddit user asked parents of the internet, "What's the most embarrassing thing your child did in public, and what did you do in that moment?"
This was back in 1998. I live in a fairly small town in British Columbia Canada. It is about 99.9% white people. I had my daughter at the grocery store and there was a person of color at the checkout. My two-year-old pointed at her and said “Oprah!” Oprah!!”
I died. My soul left my body.
Completely full of grace, the lady laughed and laughed and then said “Oh I wish I was Oprah!” - Hereinpen
My oldest had a talent for finding hard surfaces with his head. He smacked into a door frame at preschool when he fell off a bouncy horse and had a huge goose egg in the middle of his forehead. Gravity did its thing and the blood in the goose egg slid down his face, blacking both eyes.
