    Our last trip while RUNNING to our "almost late" ressies at CRT for Thanksgiving lunch, my oldest DD tripped me and I fell FLAT on my face (and knees) right in the middle of mainstreet!! :faint: Luckily I was holding our new camera in my hands so it didn't break into a million pieces! I was so mad at DD since I had warned her to quit darting in front of me plus I was bleeding and embarrassed...I probably went overboard with the lecture that ensued. The pictures with Cindy before lunch and then the pictures we took during lunch show my daughter with fake, sad smiles :guilty: I felt HORRIBLE when I saw them!! I spent the rest of the day making it up to her with special hugs and a much more relaxed "stop to smell the roses" kind of day. :hug: Although I now have a big scar on my knee from the fall, it helps me to remember that my few moments of pain and embarrassment were NOTHING to the way I made my DD feel...BAD MOMMY!! ::yes::

    Oh no! It's so hard to forgive ourselves for "mommy mess-ups", isn't it?

    I hate Dinosaurs ever since a visit to a museum when I was a kid. When I walked inside a saw the dinosaur bones I let out a startled scream. My DH still laughs at me for it. You are not the only over 30 creeped out by dinosaurs!

    Every mother of a son's nightmare (at least for me!) came true for you :rolleyes2

    My nephew used to do this until school age....He always waited until the last possible moment to go and then couldn't wait any more!

    I had two within a few minutes of each other.

    My daughter and I were looking for the POTC ride and somehow ended up on the outskirts of Frontier Land. I grabbed our map and started to look for the ride when I felt a presence behind us. I looked up and was nose to nose with Clarabelle the cow. I screamed so loud and my daughter did too because my scream scared her! The handler was cracking up and I think the cow was too. (I am only bummed that I never thought to get a picture as I was still startled)

    Well a few short minutes later all of the Brer characters started coming out. Brer Rabbit, Brer Bear...etc...Brer Rabbit hugged my daughter and I got a great picture. Well I was in a happy mood and wanted my pic taken with Brer Bear so I ran over to him and tried to pose with him only to get a paw in the face and the bear left.

    Silly me- I didn't realize they were starting a show and i kind of got in the way! My daughter still cracks up that I was dissed by the bear!

    I had one at BOG at lunch a few weeks ago. We were eating and I started coughing. I quickley spit out the food in my mouth into my hand, so I wouldn't asperate it, and thought "what a horrible thing to do. At least no one here knows me". when all of a sudden I hear "I know you, how are you? I remember you from Pop Century! You were there a year ago!" It was a CM who used to work there but now works at BOG. I hope she didn't notice me a few moments prior to this.

    My family says I knocked down a chinese tourist and his camera while I went commando to get soaring tickets. I do not believe I did but they always like to bring it up. :confused3

    Passing out in the line for Splash Mountain was a pretty embarrassing one... My British blood just can't handle the heat and it took its toll. But it was my fifth Disney trip and every time I'd been before I was too small or it was closed. So I rode it anyway. I'm a trooper.

    The other was on my first trip to WDW when I was six. My mum and brother are NOT into rides, and I was so young that I'd never been on a big ride before.
    Anyway, my parents saw dinosaur and thought 'how bad can it be?'
    Long story short, in our ride picture, my whole family was completely cowering in fear and my mum came off the ride in tears. Somehow I don't think the other family that was riding with us bought their picture....

    I cried after riding BTMRR at age fourteen :rotfl2: I wasn't a big roller coaster fan at the time and didn't realize that you got whipped around more in the back, so that's where I sat. I was just totally shocked that it was so intense and as soon as I got off started bawling.

    I was waiting in line for Dumbo, and leant against the fence. Unfortunately for me, it wasn't a fence, it was a exit gate and I nearly fell backwards out of the line.

    This past Dec we were in line for POTC and DD16 was getting antsy (we go normally in Sept so she wasn't use to a line for POTC) and she leaned against a chain that apparently was magnetic.. It opened hit the ground with a HUGE bang (sounded like a gun shot) scared my poor mother to death who yelped out loud and DD had to pick herself up off the ground! I couldn't stop giggling during the whole ride.

    Also during this trip we decided on our first night to go check out AOA we were walking the resort and were in the LK section, all of a sudden DS20 and DH dart into the cave and ran thru I followed and so did my mom well, she didn't see the low over hang at one point and smacked her head so hard she knocked her self off her feet! You could hear her hit her poor head! Of course all of us were concerned (she is 76) and went running to her but she popped up so quickly she again hit her head! She insisted she was fine and wanted to continue to explore the resort but within min she had a nice goose egg on her poor head!

    Later on that same trip we were getting off the bus and had been sitting in the back, this bus had the raised back where you take two steps down, well moms eyes were terrible and she didn't realize, thank GOD she was holding on to the pole b/c she ended up swinging down the stairs and around to the open door almost landing in someones stroller! The owner of the stroller asked her if she was ok, to which mom says YEP and keeps going like she meant to do it! My DD and I laughed so hard DD ended up on the floor..Yea mom was a trip on this vacation..litteraly!

    Same trip.. We were riding Primevil Whirl and DS20 was talking and didn't realize we were coming up on a drop and swingaround at the same time and ended up punching himself in the face.. I laughed so hard I was crying,.. I still giggle about it!

    It wasn't that big of a deal, but I stepped on Jack Sparrow's boot trying to get really close to him at a party one night. He called me to the mat on it, so the speak. :tongue: He told me that there were other wenches in line to get with Jack Sparrow. He said it quietly, but a few adults around heard him. I was so embarrassed.

    Bwahaha! My DS was always interested in the "candy machines" in the girls' restrooms. One time he yelled to me "50 cents for a napkin?!?! What a rip-off!!"

    You just reminded me that I when was having my picture taken with one of the green army men from Toy Story I didn't realize I was standing on the piece of plastic that extended past his foot until he nearly fell over when he tried to walk away from me.

    I once fell getting into a Jungle Cruise boat and landed smack in the lap of a large Spanish gentleman. He said something to another person in his party, who turned to me and said, "he wants to know if you want to marry him now." Everyone in the boat laughed themselves sick and I was red as a beet for the entire ride.
