What parent does LOVE when their children receive compliments?! It's like a pat on the back- "Yeah, I made that!" or "Yeah, I raised them well." But there's one compliment that my children receive (often) and I hate it:
"What beautiful eyes!!" and "Look at those eyelashes; they're so long!" Okay... I don't hate the compliment... I hate what comes after the compliment. I hate when people then look at me to see if that's where they got their lashes from. I cringe. Please don't look at my lashes to see if they are as long as my children's. They're not. They're barely even there. So the last thing I want is attention to my lashes... especially when they are comparing length. I try my hardest to avoid eye contact, change the subject or probably do/say something awkward since I feel awkward.
I guess I need to get used to this (you think I would have after 5 years of people complimenting my babies and their baby blues).
I guess I should look at their beautiful eyes as my goal, as inspiration. Cause those beautiful long lashes did come from me... you just can't tell by looking at me right now.
