Little Miss Sunshine State

My daughter once described me this way.
"My Mom is one of the nicest people I know, but sometimes she's a little 'tard"


It's kind of like my Paco sometimes calls my husband a "big meanie," but then, for Dad's bday, he also made him a little piece of paper that reads "You're so nice."

Smalltown Mom

I am so lucky...my sons have never ever said anything mean and nasty about me. (To my face, but honestly, I don't think they ever think it, either.)


Dontcha just love it when kids keep you in check?! Yeah, me neither. : )


The value of words... A student of mine called me "dumb" the other day and when I questioned his ability to evaluate my intelligence, he said "Gah! I'm not talking about how smart you are - you just don't listen to what I have to say."

He was right - I hadn't.

Prof. J

I don't know. I think I'd rather be mean.




That is hilarious, though I have to agree with backhand!!! My kids says things like, "you're nice Mom?.....but sometimes, "not so much!"


I hear "you're so mean" from my daughter but never from my son!


Teenagers are God's way of keeping our egos in check!


I'm confident that my kids think I'm mean sometimes. I'm afraid to ask them if they think I'm stupid...

Manic Mommy

My seven-year-old perfected his eye roll at about 3 years. I don't have to ask if he thinks I'm stupid. I think he just wonders how I get by.

The honesty....So funny!!!


Yeah, I take whatever compliments I can wring out of the kids, too. :)


It might be better not knowing what they say about you, huh? : )

apathy lounge

Don't you feel better now? :[


And there you have it.

Give them about 10 years. They won't think you're stupid anymore. Maybe getting a bit senile, but not stupid.


Deb D

Gotta love them! Of course you will get smarter as you (and they) get older!


kids' honesty sometimes gets a bit too close for comfort. kind of like issei's comment "your butt is not as big as grandma's"....yes, there's a compliment in there somewhere.

Green Girl in Wisconsin

I laughed out loud that was so unexpected!


Ouch. But, funny ouch.
