I am so embarassed: my child mooned the neighborhood!
So, my 3 year old was getting dressed after swimming this afternoon. I thought she knew where I was (I was in her sister's room helping her sister) but instead of looking for me inside when she needed help, she decided to look for me outside. I guess because we had just been out there swimming she somehow thought I was still out there?!? Anyway, I thought I heard the door close, but I figured she had gotten dressed without me and was just letting the dog in or something. I go to check and I discover her outside WITH NO BOTTOMS ON! She was walking around our yard with a BARE BOTTOM looking for me. This was SO embarrassing. I feel terrible that she managed to get out looking like that. I told a close friend about it and she just thought it was funny. Maybe someday I'll think it is, but right now it makes me wanna cry it's that emabarrassing. I am praying that by some luck none of the neighbors saw her. I know 3 year olds don't have much modesty, but this kid needs some common sense!!! We had a very serious talk about it after I got some clothes on her. I guess this has shown me that it really is important to teach kids about modesty. We will be talking about it a lot more starting now. Does anyone else happen to have a similar story so I know I'm not the only one something like this has ever happened to? :-(
EDIT- To anyone who was concerned about her being out there with the pool, it was a wading pool and I always dump it out as soon as we're done with it, so there was no drowning danger. The fact that she got out alone did shake me up and I think that's a big reason why I was so upset at first. She has never gone outside like that without me before but now I have been reinforcing the rule that she does not go out alone!
