new friend for mom


Girlfriends


My tween daughters started junior high this year. Lots of new faces. Recently, one of them spent the day with a new friend.

When she got home, she volunteered, "I think you would like Stacie's mom."

"Oh really?"

"Yeah. You're both a lot alike."

I took the bait.

"How are we alike?"

"You both get mad easy."

Ah. I'll be sure to hook up with her, then.

Hip Mom's Guide said...

Oh, the many joys of raising tweens. Is it too juvenile to suggest actually inviting the other mom out for lunch? It was her idea, after all. :)

Melissa said...

HA! In that case I would be friends with everyone! :)

But yeah, I'd invite her for coffee just to annoy my kid. And if you do hit it off, it's another pair of eyes on your kid. Just sayin'..

hokgardner said...

Oh yay. I can't wait until mine says something like that.

Madge said...

i like when my kid tells me i look fat. that's my fav.

Lisa Wheeler Milton said...

I'm sure she said it wrong. She left out all the parts about the mutual smarts, the mutual kindness...

Well, you are lucky really. My children always say I am far crabbier than any of the parents of their friends. I try to explain that parents are probably trying to be on their best behaviour and don't nag about the state of bedrooms etc when they have visitors but the boys just snort at me as if I am talking rubbish yet again.

Mental P Mama said...

I'd like Stacie's mom, too;)

I love that clay art, that's really cool.

talk about a back-handed compliment...

Stacie said...

My daughter's friend said to me, "you know Miss Stacie, you're the mean mommy in the neighborhood." To which i replied, "Badge of Honor, my Dear. Badge of Honor."

blognut said...

So... do two people who get mad easily get along? Or, do they hate each other?

:)

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

Well, if you get mad over the same issues then it must be a match made in Heaven, right?

Also? I'm totally in love with this clay artist. Wow.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

That is hysterical.

You and I would get along well!

Jocelyn said...

I love the art here...and your daughter's perception not only of you but of what you'd connect to in a new galpal. Sheesh!

I'm glad that I won't have to deal with any comments like that for a looooooong time. The sperm hasn't even reached the egg yet in my house, so kids are a long way off.

By the way, do you fancy joining an online book group over at my blog? Come over to my blog and read the post "Book group, anyone?" if you're interested, and suggest a book you'd like to read.

dkuroiwa said...

okay...so that group of people who would all be really good friends just keep getting bigger and bigger, doesn't it? :-D yeah yeah yeah...count me in too!!
Think of the party we could have!!!

I'd LOVE to see more of that clay artistry...very cool!!

Fantastic Forrest said...

Love the art, especially the birds and trees. Her website is great!

I'm like Stacie's mom too, except my daughter says I'm the meanest mother ever. :)

Real Live Lesbian said...

Kinda makes me glad I have dogs. Again.

I love the clay!!!! Amazing!

Stacie said...

just wanted you to know that I mentioned you and your blog on my blog today!

Susan said...

Isn't it fun that we are all the meanest mom in the world? It's kind of a "more the merrier" thing!

stephanie (bad mom) said...

No wonder we're all such good cyberfrieds.

If you're lucky, your daughter will get the clay artist to make you a BAD MOM sculpture.

Margo said...

this sounds relatively sweet compared to the things my 17 yo says to me recently. What does that mean, doc? Maybe you and this other mad mother should start a claymation show and call it "Mad Moms"

Still waiting on hubby shoe description...

imom said...

Pfftt... Daughters!

Dr. Deb said...

I think it is a badge of honor too!

Jason, as himself said...

HA! Not quite what you had hoped for, was it?

JCK said...

Love that clay art!

Maybe you could invite the other mom over for wine, and darts.
