It's not often the mother of my two kids pays me a compliment.
After all, we've been divorced for several years.
But we've been thrust together this past summer several times helping our daughter deal with a couple of life changing events and decisions. (Well, not physically thrust together mind you. We're cordial, and I must say when it has come to our kids we've managed to be pretty much on the same page, but definitely not thrust against one another.)
But a true compliment was inadvertently overheard.
Mom to 21-year-old daughter: "Gee Ashlyn, why can't you learn how to cook? Even your father knows how to cook!"
Well, some of you may think she was simply hungry.
Oh. Ye. Of. Little. Faith.
It was a compliment, I refuse to interpret it any other way. So there.
