Mommy Moments: Embarrassing Before Yet I Do It Today


While I was growing up, I had a fair share of embarrassing moments with my mom. Well, before I find it embarrassing but today, as I have become a mom myself, I find myself doing them and I consider them endearing moments.

Here is a list of some embarrassing memories with my mom yet I find myself doing today:

1. When my mom gave me kisses when I was already in my pre-teens in front of my friends or other people. She did not just do this once but most of the time even before I entered college. Before, I really find it embarrassing but when I became a mom myself, I often find myself doing it to my three children. I finally understand that in a mom’s eyes, her children technically never grow old.

2. When my mom starts joining our conversation. I find myself in a very embarrassing situation when she starts to talk to my friends and share about me. Now, I find myself doing it to my teen. Before, I thought it was embarrassing but I just realized that my mom did it to get to know more about my friends and be an engaging parent. And yes, even with my friends right now, my mom is still engaging. She talks to my friends who are moms already and even to my children’s friends.

3. When my mom starts to talk about me to other people. Whenever my mom had the opportunity to talk about me, she talks a lot about me! I may not find myself that great as a child but in my mom’s, she talks about me both my small and big achievements. She even finds positive in my negative moments. Now, as a mom, I do that too. I talk about my children to other people (not strangers) on how they are. I find happiness if I talk about my kids to others. It makes me proud myself.

Mother's Day

As Mother’s Day approaches, I can’t help but remember those moments with my mom. They might be embarrassing for me when I was a child but when I grew up, I realized those were endearing moments.

How about you guys? Are there moments you find it embarrassing before but you find yourself doing to your children today? Can you share about those moments?

Chickenjoy with Jolly SpaghettiSpeaking about Mother’s Day, I just learned that Jollibee Chickenjoy and Jolly Spaghetti are now made more affordable for everyone. It will be much easier for me to treat my mom and the whole family because of the affordable price it has now. A one-piece Chickenjoy with Jolly Spaghetti SOLO from P117, now P99 – that’s P18 in savings! And a one-piece Chickenjoy with Jolly Spaghetti Value Meal from P122, now P109, saving me P13! I am sure that I will be treating my mom and the while family with their favorite langhap-sarap pair with Jollibee and enjoy big savings this Mother’s Day and probably talk more about embarrassing yet endearing moments!

    They are all embarrassing until one’s mum passes away! Your then reflect and say, I WISH I could be embarrassed for just one more day! Thanks for sharing!


      That is so true but thankfully my mom is still alive and I don’t call them embarrassing anymore but endearing moments. I think my kids are not embarrassed of me. I think they understand it already.

      You took the words right out of my mouth. My mom is gone as of June 19th for three years now, and I still wish I could have one more day with her. I’d love to be embarrassed by her.

    My 10 year old told me recently to start kissing him BEFORE the bus pulls up instead of doing it when the bus actually pulls up. I knew it was going to happen, just not so soon.

  • Christy Maurer

    All of my friends loved my mom, and now all my kids friends love me! I am fortunate that they’re not embarrassed by me lol. My daughter’s friends all call me mom 🙂

  • Michele

    My Mom did all the above that you mentioned and then some—she still does and I am 64 –she is 92–so tell your kids (and yourselves) it NEVER stops. Not that I really mind as an adult–but when I was a teen——————

  • Brook Devis

    oh i had same kinds of irritations in these kinds of situations with my mo too.but at the end of all i just know that she loves me 🙂

  • Carrie

    My mom does all of the above. I used to be so embarrassed. Nowadays I just let her and it doesn’t embarrass me anymore… Probably because I am starting to turn into her!

  • Jessica Harlow

    This is very true! As a kid until probably 8 or 9, I was okay with Mom’s incessant PDAs! lol But, during the teen years, I was more embarrased by them. Now that she’s gone and I’m an adult, I’d give anything for her hugs and kisses. 🙂

  • Heather

    Ah! Your mom loves you, I’m thankful my six year old doesn’t think anything I do is embarressing yet. He still kisses me goodbye I front of all his friends on school days. I know that day will come though when he’s embarressed. That’s ok though, we all go through it,m

  • Jennifer Stewart

    I was always so embarrassed by my mom and now that I am a mom I take as many opportunities as I can do do these things to my kids. I know that they don’t like it, but when they are older they will do the same thing too!

  • Amber

    My 12 year old doesn’t usually get embarrassed by me yet- and if he does, it’s for things I wouldn’t have thought he’d be embarrassed about lol!

  • ricci

    Oh my…my Mom used to think she was a “cool mom” and listen to the same music as my friends and I. I will never forget the day she came to pick me up from school blaring Blackstreet’s No Diggity. OMG.

  • Trisha Haas

    These are moments that many of us don’t appreciate until it’s too late. I’m sure I’m going to embarrass my kids as they grow up. I hope that they never outgrow wanting my attention.

  • Rebecca Swenor

    I think every mother has them moments. lol I remember when my boys stopped wanting me to stop them when I dropped them off at school. It was around 2nd or 3rd grade when they told me it was to embarrassing. Thanks for sharing.

  • Jaime Nicole

    Oh yes, I still love when my mom brings out the naked baby pics at large family gatherings. I try not to do it at large events, but with older kids who were so adorable and are now so trying on the nerves it helps to remember how cute and sweet they were!
