My kids can be hard on me. I take it as a compliment. My daughter still reminds me, “Mom, remember when you forgot to pack my lunch in kindergarten?” (She just finished second grade. And there was a half day so I had a reason, not that I am defensive about it.) Or sometimes I get “wait, these muffins aren’t homemade?” (I like to bake, in other words I like to eat homemade muffins). Or once in a while someone will protest “we didn’t get a playdate allllll week!”
This tells me I am doing a bang up job. While there is no such thing as a perfect mother; I like to think if this is where I am slipping up and not meeting their needs, then I feel greatly satisfied with a job well done.
What are some of your reverse compliments? Mothers of the world, applaud yourselves!
