One of a parent's many jobs includes monitoring what their kids see, and parents whose kids have walked in on them having sex learned such oversight is easier said than done. For any number of reasons, curiosity or a desire to save "Mommy from hurting Daddy", plenty of kids walks in on their parents doing the deed. It's an awkward moment, but many parents will speak of their kids walking in on them as a family joke for years to come. Fortunately, in a couple of threads on Reddit (like this one and this one), parents describe their kids interrupting them during a "session", all hilarious tales that sometimes lead to interesting conclusions.
So enjoy these moments when parents talk about their kids walking in while they were doing it. And if you're a parent, here's hoping you can get that alone time you need, even though that could lead to even more kids, who could potentially walk in on you while you do the deed.
"I was pregnant, and my six-year-old walked in on us. He immediately walked out and shut the door and my husband and I freaked out. I went downstairs and found him coloring at the kitchen table. I sat down and said, 'You saw Daddy and me in a private moment and I just wanted to make sure--' and he interrupted with, 'When you were having sexual intercourse? That's what it's called, SEXUAL INTERCOURSE.'
I was like, 'Yes, and I just wanted to make sure you weren't upset or scared or anything.' He asked, 'You mean because I saw you having sexual intercourse?' I said, 'Yes.' He said, 'No...I'm not scared or upset. Why, were YOU scared or upset?' I said no. He said, 'I'll tell you what I thought. I was thinking, I wonder if she'll get another baby in there and then we can have twin babies!'
But then for like months after that, if anyone would say the word 'private' he would say, 'Some people say 'private moment' when they mean sexual intercourse, which is a penis going into a vagina, and it's how babies get inside the Mom.'"
She Thinks It's Beautiful
"My wife and I have no kids, but her sister comes over and spends the night with us on occasion. My wife's mother remarried kinda late in life, so my sister-in-law is far younger than my wife.
Anyway, she was spending the weekend with us. It was late, her sister was in bed, and we decided it was time to do the deed... and her 10-year-old sister did that little knock-twice-and-then-pretty-much-immediately-open-the-door maneuver. Fortunately we were doing it under the covers, so she couldn't see anything.
This is more-or-less how the conversation went.
Sister-in-law: 'Fred is outside meowing, can I let him in?'
Wife: 'Yeah, just open the door and make sure you lock it back.'
Sister-in-law: 'Can I bring him in my room?'
Wife: 'If you want to, but he'll probably want out after a little while.'
Sister-in-law: 'Ok.... were you guys doing it?'
Wife: 'Umm... I mean... ... I guess we ..uuhh...'
Sister-in-law: 'Some people would think that's gross, but I think it's beautiful.'
And then she left."
"One day our nine-year-old boy takes the dog for a walk to the park, which means we get just about 20 minutes to do the deed. So we run upstairs, strip, start fooling around, and since no one is home, I get to be as noisy as I want. (I really miss being noisy.) So we're getting to the good part and I hear a knock on the door and a worried 'Mom? Mom? Are you okay?' I yell at the door that it'll be just a minute and throw on my bathrobe all the while saying 'shit' under my breath. I get out to my kid looking really scared, and he says, 'I thought you were having surgery or something.' Long explanation, about the birds and the beeds and how it can feel good and he goes, 'Oh, okay,..because my next guess was you were having a baby.'"
Good Morning Kiss
"My seven-year-old grandson walked in on mom and dad two weeks ago. Dad tells him to get out. Grandson says he just wanted to give mom a good morning kiss. Dad repeats 'get out.' Mom comes out a few minutes later and grandson asks what dad was doing. Mom says he was giving her a kiss. Grandson said 'I know what you were doing and it's disgusting, and now I don't want to kiss you good morning.'"
