Do you have "the look"?

My mother used to have this look that we knew meant business and what ever we were doing immediately ceased when she gave us "the look". My son however is 15 and I cannot for the life of me give him a 'knock it off before I explode' look without him laughing! He always has since he was a baby. Last week his friend went with us to Target and he came around the corner, looked at me and said "Dude we're in trouble" my ds looks at me and starts laughing! Please tell me I am not the only mom who is "look" impaired?

    but you are not the only "look imparied" mom out there, it took me almost ten years to perfect that look

  • LOL!! I used to sing in the choir for church, and my kids used to get the "air count" (when you hold up the 1-2-3 fingers for the "count") if they were misbehaving while I was on stage singing. They learned really quick that an "air count" was just as good as the real thing, and would probably piss me off worse because I couldn't immediately take action to correct them. :-)

  • Apparently I don't, because my kids just give it right back to me. I don't have The Voice either.

  • My kids know. I have the look. Their behavior changes immediately.
