FIVE CLUELESS COMMENTS MADE BY MY INLAWS
- "Kelly, you have curly hair?" This comment came from a woman who knew me for over 10 years at the time. She does notice all the little details in other relatives' homes. All of a sudden, the light bulb went on and she noticed my crazy curls. When I was in my twenties, the curls were really obvious. I wonder if she would have noticed if I had a mohawk?
- "Maybe he'll try an olive." My super fussy son doesn't want to eat bread. He sticks to what he likes when it comes to meal time. I've tried every type of method to get him to diversify his menu. It's a losing battle. Gratefully, he is healthy and well fed anyway. Every time we go to a family function, I get grilled about why he doesn't eat this or that. What makes her think that an olive would all of a sudden make him open to eating? Sure, an olive is up his alley :) Why didn't I think of that?
- "Kelly, you have to check your cushions carefully. I found a cheerio." Thanks for the advice after I broke my neck cleaning the house top to bottom. Of course, she had to find a cheerio. Glad that she didn't see my minivan that day. She would've been horrified by the cheerio explosion in the back seat.
- "What jar sauce did you use?" I'm an Irish girl who married an Italian. I had to learn real quick how to make "gravy" or tomato sauce. After many years, I think that I have my homemade sauce recipe down pretty good. So here we are at the table and she loves to slide that jar sauce comment in. I can't win.
- "Kelly, maybe you need to read to him more." Kids' books are in every room of my house. I love to read to my kids. I have read to them countless times at my inlaws house. Sometimes it's a good way for me to escape too :) She suggested that I read more when my kindergartner son was chosen for an assisted reading program at school. I guess she thinks I let my kids roam around free like animals without any intellectual stimulation :)
