Momliment: noun. A compliment specifically for moms.
You know the ones I'm talking about. "You're baby is so cute!" or, "Look how good s/he is being!" Recently I started to got Momliments on Philosopher Child's reading ability.
But tonight, my friends, was the most hilarious momliment ever. A man came to the door and I foolishly answered it, thinking it was my neighbor. Well, the man on the other side told me he was doing a power usage survey. And then it happened.
He asked me if my parents were home.
Dumbfounded, I replied, "I am the parent."
He was just as confused. "Oh. I...you don't look...OK..."
I'm going to be laughing about this for a long, long time.
