Definition: Embarrassment is an emotional state experienced upon having a socially or professionally unacceptable act or condition witnessed by or revealed to others. Usually some amount of loss of honor or dignity is involved, but how much and the type depends on the embarrassing situation.

Our caseworker came for a visit today. I needed to sign some paperwork and he wanted to check in on Ethan. While he was there, Ellie brought out her beloved (and disgustingly dirty) Pink Baby. She promptly put Pink Baby into a drawstring bag and started hitting the bag, yelling, "Be quiet, baby! Go to sleep!" She thought this was hilarious. I probably wouldn't have minded so much if the person she was showing off for wasn't the caseworker! He's there to make sure Ethan is in a safe home. Luckily he knows our family well and he didn't seem the least concerned. I was horrified, though!

ps--Just to clarify, that is NOT how we get our baby to sleep!


  1. Oh man! Of all the times! I would have died too! But it's pretty hilarious at the same time!

  2. That is so hilarious. I remember meetings with our social worker when Brooklynn was only 12 and 14 months and she was acting like a 12 and 14 month old and thinking. I hope they know how a baby is sometimes.

  3. Wow... You win embarrassing moment of the year. That is hilarious.

  4. That is so funny! Seriously what can you say in a situation like that. :) ha ha... ahhh kids!
