Friday Funny! ;-) Embarrassing Brynden

Parenting comes with its fair share of challenges, rewards and little perks. One of those little perks is embarrassing my kids whenever I get the chance. Now, just to be clear, there is a world of difference between embarrassing them and belittling them. I don’t believe it’s ever OK to belittle them.

Last week at Disney World I had fun embarrassing Brynden on two separate occasions. He is our youngest (12 y.o.) and the only one who had never been there so he purchased an autograph book and worked hard to meet as many Disney Characters as possible.

As he was meeting Minnie Mouse and getting her autograph I said (loud enough for everyone to hear): “Hey Brynden, don’t forget that Mickey said to give Minnie a kiss from him.” He turned all shades of red but gave her the kiss.

Then on our last day there we stood in line to meet three of the Disney Princesses. As Brynden was getting an autograph from Belle I said (again, rather loudly): “Hey Brynden, did you tell Belle that she is your favorite princess?” (Which is true) Once again, he turned all kinds of red and Belle played it up perfectly as you can tell from the picture below.

What fun we had making special memories as a family. Hope you enjoy some memory-making with your family this weekend!
