Most Embarrassing Things Kids Find in Their Parents’ Bedrooms

by Ericka Sóuter

handcuffsThere are a million ways our kids embarrass us. Tantrums in public. Blurting out what they overheard you saying about your neighbor -- to your neighbor. But that pales in comparison to what one couple's child did New Year's Eve. Bored with the family party, he went rummaging through their room, discovered a pair of furry handcuffs, and put them on. Problem is, no one could find the key. Desperate, they took the boy to the police station hoping that they could help. Cringe-worthy, right? This couple is not alone. More parents share the humiliating discoveries their children have made in their bedrooms. 

  1. I found my son in the middle of my bed lotioning his arms and legs with what he called "really slippery lotion" he got from my nightstand. It was lubricant.
  2. I do remember when my son found the tampons I usually keep hidden and asked me what they’re for. I hadn’t explained anything about anything at that point. I think he was maybe 7 years old, so I think I hastily said, “Oh, well, that’s just something special women need sometimes, not a big deal, here, give them back” and he didn’t ask any more questions.
  3. My vibrator -- my son asked me why I got a pretty pink rabbit toy I didn't have to share.
  4. I must have been like 5 or 6 and visiting my aunt and uncle. I ran upstairs to watch cartoons with my cousins on their bed and looked down and saw something. I picked it up and said, "Hey, what's this?" They had a dog so I just thought it was a dog toy. My aunt and uncle both looked at me with their mouths open but must have been so mortified. They looked back and forth at me and at each other, and laughed and hid their faces -- and told me to drop it. I was so confused and insistent that they tell me what it was ... but I had older brothers, and so after standing there for like 10 seconds -- which felt MUCH longer -- I realized it was a rubber penis. I dropped it, was so grossed out, and ran from their room in total embarrassment. My uncle was the family jokester so my mom just explained that it was one of my uncle's silly prank toys. I, thank goodness, didn't know what the "toy" was used for until I was much, much older.
  5. My son found these photos I sent my husband when we were dating. This was back before everyone just zapped sexy pics on their smartphones. It was an actual photo of me in skimpy lingerie. He brought it to me -- in front of his sitter -- and asked why I didn't have any clothes on. 
  6. My daughters were playing in our room and I peeked in and saw them wearing strips of condoms as boas.
  7. I caught my daughter taste-testing my flavored body oil. She said it smelled like chocolate and asked why I was hiding this "candy stuff" under the bed.

Quoting pseudomamma: Not I, but I have a friend whose son found her drawer of fun one day and invited the neighborhood kids over to see. He was 7.

OMgosh! I would have been freaked out

No I share my room with DS. He has found tampons but that isn't embarrassing at all.

My DH and DD were sitting in the livingroom watching television and my DD suddenly said "What's all that purple stuff Max is chewing?' Max, our dashchund was constantly chewing up and destroying his toys, so we didn't think anything of it, until I got to looking and it didn't look like it came from anything we had bought for him. We were all standing in the middle of the room, looking at this bright purple foam-stuff, when Max comes bounding down the stairs, with what had once been my purple vibrator in his with most of the purple latex covering chewed off!!! DD, who was about 12, said 'MOM, WHAT IS THAT?' and it took us a good fifteen minutes to catch the dog, who thought we were playing keepaway!

I'll never live that one down! LOL

No because I have nothing for them to find. But when I was 15 I was upstairs in my room and the phone rang so I went into my mom and step dads room to answer the phone and laying on the floor next to moms bed is this long penis looking thing. Well the person that was calling was my dad I asked him what it was and he said it's a dildo and told me what it's used for. I totally grossed out at that point.
