10 Embarrassing Things We All Did As Kids
3rd Level Consulting

As children, it seems like we just couldn't avoid being embarrassing, awkward creatures. As much as we hated these situations in the moment, they sure are fun to look back on at laugh at.

Here are ten embarrassing things we all did as children.

1. When following behind a parent, accidentally starting to follow someone else instead, realizing too late that you’re about a thousand feet away from where you should be.

Why was it so easy to go from looking at the shoes of one person to looking at the shoes of another without noticing?

2. Throwing up in school.

Okay, we all did it at least once. And it was horrible.


3. Calling your teacher “Mom”.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F6360065945676898291817071661_be6b5423c4fde6791010f32e04736dc9a0b59f679fac537dad4b51d222bec753_1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=907&h=a894748c1eb0087db23637acb57ae071343c321e8565a6495f4b065ef1aa8c6b&size=980x&c=2144906022 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F6360065945676898291817071661_be6b5423c4fde6791010f32e04736dc9a0b59f679fac537dad4b51d222bec753_1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D907%26h%3Da894748c1eb0087db23637acb57ae071343c321e8565a6495f4b065ef1aa8c6b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2144906022%22%7D" expand=1]

It just slipped out, okay?

4. Dressing up for pajama day on the wrong day.

I guess I didn’t get the memo...

5.Entering elementary school “relationships”.

We’d pass notes to our crushes that said, “Do you like me? Circle yes or no,” and somehow that blossomed into a week-long relationship filled with note-passes, awkward conversations (usually initiated and translated by our best friends), and a lot of blushing.

6. “Lice checks” where you actually ended up having lice.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006594560189475871203416_n0cfYDN.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=759&h=074f37e2b6eac002f4d7dc6799250a96585e435a3cf300e61d6d4aa491babd20&size=980x&c=228730499 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006594560189475871203416_n0cfYDN.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D759%26h%3D074f37e2b6eac002f4d7dc6799250a96585e435a3cf300e61d6d4aa491babd20%26size%3D980x%26c%3D228730499%22%7D" expand=1]

Lice checks were just painful and embarrassing, especially when you actually ended up having lice and the teacher would inconspicuously send you out of the classroom. As if no one noticed.

7. Wearing outfits you thought were cute for picture day.

Elementary school styles just changed so quickly, it was hard to keep up!

8. Peeing your pants in school, and trying to play it off like you didn’t.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F6360066002180883841026984168_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=0&h=d43c6808cf0ce862cc07cee7fbd3315043d69ad374992101c8f952b4082aada1&size=980x&c=3963781495 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F6360066002180883841026984168_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D0%26h%3Dd43c6808cf0ce862cc07cee7fbd3315043d69ad374992101c8f952b4082aada1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3963781495%22%7D" expand=1]

Until someone pointed it out to you and/or the class...

9. “Growth and development” talks.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006603488235709129616731_anigif_enhanced-23180-1441023207-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=437&h=f88cbee38e993f4426a99700129d0fd48a1f6ce014cb4a616e79b45ab0661c1f&size=980x&c=716559358 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006603488235709129616731_anigif_enhanced-23180-1441023207-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D437%26h%3Df88cbee38e993f4426a99700129d0fd48a1f6ce014cb4a616e79b45ab0661c1f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D716559358%22%7D" expand=1]

Whether it was with the school nurse or with a parent, there's just no way to do this without it being awkward and embarrassing.

10. Gym class.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006678575238475-1439551222_http%253A%252F%252Fmashable.com%252Fwp-content%252Fuploads%252F2012%252F08%252Fgym.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=876&h=98c2248698d2895caa391a7c5ce0bfda9c8865baa47e96f677789a8351d3da65&size=980x&c=3713476116 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006678575238475-1439551222_http%25253A%25252F%25252Fmashable.com%25252Fwp-content%25252Fuploads%25252F2012%25252F08%25252Fgym.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D876%26h%3D98c2248698d2895caa391a7c5ce0bfda9c8865baa47e96f677789a8351d3da65%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3713476116%22%7D" expand=1]

Between getting hit in the face with a dodgeball, tripping on your way to first base, and always getting an out during kickball, gym class could be pretty rough.


As they say, kids will be kids, and unfortunately, kids will always be embarrassing. But we can now look back on these awkward memories and laugh (and cringe) at our poor, pitiful selves, knowing that we've gotten through the hard part, and that our embarrassing days are over. Hopefully.
