"No, honey, don't do THAT!"

Has your toddler ever knocked over a huge display case in the grocery store, started going through the stuff in a stranger's handbag in a coffee shop, kept crawling or peeking under the bathroom stall of a stranger in a public bathroom? Or worse?
Please share your funniest or most embarrassing troublemaking toddler moments for possible inclusion in The Stir!

My family and I were eating out in a nice restaurant one night in the midst of potty training my son. He told my husband he had to poop so he took him and they were gone for aboutr 15 minutes. When walking back to the table, he announced he had pooped in the potty to our whole section of the restaurant! Kind of a bittersweet moment. LOL

Gosh so many lol. There are 2 that stick out though. When my son was about 18 months old we took him to the pool and a man walked through the gate, as soon as Gabriel saw him he starts yelling and pointing "Elmo!!!!" I was mortified the man just looked at me and said Elmo? LOL he looked nothing like Elmo by the way. The second was when I took the kids to Walgreens, I was trying to get Brylee to sit down in the front part of the cart, she looks at me and loudly announces"Mommy, I can't sit down yet my underwear are in my vagina and I need to get them out first." Face Palm lol

 When my daughter was potty training four years ago, she made a habit of announcing everything she was doing. Which was fine as most people just chuckled and thought it was adorable, she was a tiny 2yo then. lol

Unfortunately for me, we went to Sea World one day and I had to go to the bathroom. Obviously I had to take her with me as it was just me, her and her then 6/7yo brother. She announced EVERYTHING I did. "You're peeing in the potty like a big girl, Mommy, good job!!" "Yay, you remembered to wipe, don't forget to wipe well!" "Good job flushing the toilet, Mommy!!!" "Wash your hands so they're all nice and clean!!"

I'm just super stoked that the one time she came into the bathroom with me while I had my period, we were at home.

 Oh, another one. When my son was in preschool and my daughter was a breastfed infant, I took him out for ice cream as a reward once. A black family came in, her baby was around 9mo. We started talking and we, of course, touch on the subject of breastfeeding. My then 4yo son (he's almost 11yo now) asks the lady "Do you make chocolate milk? Because, you know, your skin is black?"

She laughed and thought it was great, kids are such innocents she said, but I lit up the whole store in red from mortification!

My ds last year had the habit of constantly looking for his daddy when we went out. (Dh was working a lot) so he used to yell out to every man he saw "daddy!!!"
