Do certain moms ever make you feel uncomfortable? I don't know what it is, but my neighbor has older boys and I feel dumb whenever I talk to her. I have nothing much to say and we have nothing much in common. But for some reason, I feel like a child around her and we are about the same age. You know those people that always have a smiling face on and you can't judge their reaction to certain things? And if you say something that they disagree with, they won't tell you. Like they are constantly being politically correct? And you are just being yourself? I don't know what it is but when ever I finish seeing her outside, I get this nagging feeling like I acted dumb. I mean, is it because we are in competition with each other? I don't know what it is, that nagging feeling... Anyone else know what I'm talking about or is this all jibberish?Answer Question

I know about the career thing. My friend gave me good advice: don't talk about your job. She said it is not a negative, but if you are friendly with SAHMs, they don't have the interest in your job. Remember that not all neighbors are going to be friends. Be friendly, and neighborly! Sometimes it takes awhile to warm up to others. Because you don't have much in common, just keep it friendly and leave it at that. It does not sound like she's a backstabber, more like you both are at different points in your lives with kids and their ages, and what you do for work, and what she does at home. I would not take offense, just smile and wave!!!
