    Nah, not this time. She DOES let herself go a little too often. Kids CAN get too demanding of a parent’s time, even when they don’t need the parent’s time every single second. Mom needs to insist on time for herself. It’s the martyrs that live in sweatpants and bathrobes.

    (I’ll bet money I get slammed for THAT opinion. lol!)

    He’s got his mother’s ears—and his dad’s big mouth.

    Real nice, Mike. You’re on your way to being just like your dad – open mouth, insert both feet!

    It takes a much longer time for males to develop the fine art and wisdom of tactfulness. Now, Elly can go two ways with this: either take the compliment for what it is from her son or fly off the handle and use this as “a teaching moment”!

    Eh, it’s a compliment from a little kid. They can sting sometimes!

    While I don’t dress up, I try to look decent every day. I only wear sweats if I’m going to work out. I feel that you should look as if you could meet someone at a moment’s notice.

    There’s always a downside to every compliment…

    Nice as in no hair rollers or mud mask all over the face or slouchy clothes.

    She should take it as how it was intended: as a compliment. However, given that he’s learning this from his dad, she should also start teaching him some tact. But not fly off the handle over it or he’ll never pay her another compliment.

    Michael has a point though he needs a little work on how to word it more tactfully. It was the same when I was a kid. My mom worked midnight shift and when she got up around 3:00 in the afternoon she stayed in her nightgown and robe til it was time to get ready to go back to work at 11:00 which was after my bedtime. The other thing this made me think of was the only time she’d make a cake or something special was when company was coming. I’d see a cake baking and ask who was coming over. It was never just for us.
