They say kids usually speak the truth when they voice their opinion, even at the most awkward times without even thinking before they speak. Mine are like that in a nutshell when it comes to complimenting me….or perhaps, insulting is a better word.

Two “compliments” for the week (and it’s only halfway through) are:

1) “Mum, I know why you always look cranky. You have ‘resting bitch face’ hahaha”
2) “Mum, sis and I were looking at your turkey gobbler. Yeah, yano that loose skin under your neck?….well, it looks like a vagina” Followed by cackles of laughter.

I’m really feeling the love here (not)!!!!
Do your kids shower you with compliments like mine and make you feel like a million dollars (or wanting to get plastic surgery)?

  • lol don’t you hate it when they point it out!.


  • Yes, I was upset….certainly had better days lately.

    • Truly hope this is just a passing phase for you. Stay strong. Motherhood can be quite tough at times.


  • Absolutely not nice remarks indeed. I would be quite upset if my daughter addressed me that way! :-(


  • I have not had any comments like this and it sounds unkind. You are quite right they are insults. Poor you! :( Hope you have a lovely Christmas and hope your kids are kind to you too! :)


  • Those aren’t compliments, they are out of line (or would be in my house). I hope your kids grow out of making such horrid comments to you – now that would be a Christmas present worth asking for! Glad you can see the funny side …
