    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”!

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Working at home meant that I could wear anything. I was usually in jeans and a sweater when my day began. After a few years of this kind of garb, I began to envy the ladies who actually dressed up for work: whose wardrobe was current and whose appearance was groomed. When I told them I wished I had an excuse like they did to get gussied up and look professional, they did say they envied me the freedom I had. I still got them to admit, however, that it does lift one’s mood to be dressed up and looking GOOD once in awhile!

    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.
