Monday Me

When I started this blog, it was meant to be about Home, Family, and Food. It's become just about food. I'm okay with this, but I've realized that I miss the personal posts from my old blog. I've missed having a place to discuss my life, and the funny, odd, frustrating, or just weird things that happen. Since I'm starting Thai Tuesday's tomorrow (say that 5 times fast!), I don't want to post a new recipe on Monday, because it won't get a lot of lovin' before it's old. So, I thought I'd make Monday's all about ME!! Everyone needs some "me" time, right?

More than likely, "Monday Me" will be about my family, not just about me. And that's a good thing. My kids are a lot funnier than I am!

So... for my first "Monday Me", I would like to share some pictures from Christmas. These are the kids seeing Santa. We haven't done this in a few years... I don't think my youngest has ever done it! (How sad!) So, I hauled the kids over this year. And they loved it! (Despite the look on Michael's face). Let me show you the ooohh and awww pictures, and then I'll tell you something funny. Something not for your kids ears. Something that I should have brought to Santa's attention, but I just couldn't do it.

On to the cuteness...

Okay, now the funny. Thank GOODNESS you can't see this in the pictures. I'll have a hard enough time looking at these and NOT remembering... Santa's Wardrobe Malfunction.

His fly was open.

No zipper, or buttons. It was just gaping open. Now, I didn't see anything totally disgusting; just underwear...but oh, how that image will stay in my mind....

I almost pulled the photographer aside and told him. But I just couldn't make myself do it. My kids would have wanted to know what was going on, and there was the cutest couple with their new, and I mean NEW baby waiting behind us... plus I was just too embarrassed! So, I just scooped the kids back into the car, and hoped that the pictures on my camera didn't "reveal" too much! (nice pun, huh?) I was sooo relieved when they showed nothing but modesty.

What would you have done??? I'm hoping this is an experience that will never repeat itself...but what would you have done?

Have a great week!


  1. I always, always, say something discreetly. There is a brief, but temporary period of embarrassment on their part, but I am sure they are secretly grateful. I know I would be!

  2. OH MY GOSH! To be completely honest, I would have done the same thing! I hate those awkward moments...just like telling someone they have something in their teeth or they need a breath mint. Will they be grateful? Think I'm rude? Do I have something in MY teeth and/or do I need a mint?! I'm sure most people would be grateful but I am on that boat with you ma'am! : )

  3. That is really funny - I probably wouldn't have had the nerve to say anything either. Cute kiddos!

  4. I'm feel so bad saying this but, I would have probably burst out laughing, unable to contain myself, I would scurry off leaving my family behind wondering... "what the heck?"

  5. I would have jotted a quick note and passed it to the photographer and then bolted with my kids as quickly as possible! LOL!!
