Moms who know better than you

Kind of joking there.  But the other day I met a mom who was certain she knew which area schools were the best.  I told her my children are happily in public school, but upon entering middle school and/or upon entering 8th grade, if any of mine wants, then we'll take a tour of all of the schools in the area ~ private, several Catholic.  Not a Catholic, lol, she told me unequivocally that, yes, I needed to take my children on a tour of the local Catholic schools NOW because they are the best schools in the area.  Because of course her kids went there.   Her children graduated from high school long ago, but I never quite got my answer on what they were all doing now.  Wink

Anyway, the "conversation" (monologue?) continued until my friend saw me cornered.  Has this kind of thing happened to you ~ older mom telling you how to do it better?  How do you handle moms with children older than yours who are a little too liberal and pushy with their advices?  ....Have you ever been that mom?

Not even a good try.   You're slipping.

Le's see, from not reading, to zeal in ignoring questions to making things up.  All in just a few posts, well at least it wasn't 100's of posts later this time around in your fiction process.  I guess user names only last so long these days.  Wink

Why would it seem that my sharing with anyone is based on what I share or don't share with you?

Well again, that's not what I said, I guess you did miss that in the zeal to ignore questions.  :)

She didn't say she had no intention of sharing it; just that she had no intention of sharing it with you. 

She has no intention of sharing it with anyone, it seems.

I didn't say it was a private subject, did you miss that in the usual zeal to ignore the questions asked in the previous post?

Why else would you have no intention of sharing if you didn't find it something private?

I didn't say it was a private subject, did you miss that in the usual zeal to ignore the questions asked in the previous post?
