My darling much loved little man (he turned 3 in March) embarrassed the heck out of me today at shopping. Totally oblivious to any mortification it would cause.
We were walking in out local shopping centre and next to us was a man and his mother. The man was on crutches and had had his foot amputated (I assume). Anyway, little mister decided to walk next to me, next to the man and say in a very loud voice "Mummy, that man has no foot." not once, but a few times. I told him (my son) that he was being rude but was informed that "it's not rude, the man has no foot". I tugged him along faster while explaining that the man probably hurt his foot very badly, but the whole time DS walked almost backwards saying "Mummy, he hasn't got a foot." I felt so bad, especially as i probably didn't handle it well but didn't know what else to do.
Does anyone else have any stories to share that may help me feel better? 5 hours later and I'm still embarrassed.
Sorry, I'm iPhone-lexic
