The things kids say

Got this wonderful compliment from my 15-year-old yesterday. We were at the optician’s to get her glasses fixed. Well who can resist trying out a lot of frames while at the optician’s…

What do you think, I said, turning to my daughter, adorned with a pair of frames I really liked.

Oh, nice. she said. And then continued: the make you look really professional and serious. But..ummm…professional and serious….that’s so not you, mom.
