  • I say, "Thank you." I don't comment on their children because they'll know I'm only saying something because they did first and that I don't really mean it. I do say hello to the kids though.

  • if my kids are right next to me looking at the person, i tell them to say thank you... if i'm watching my girls play, and the person is next to me and says it, i tend to say, "thanks. i like them."

  • people tell me that my baby will be beautiful and i say thank you but thinking about it i just find that weird. you always say thank you when someone compliments you but what do you say if they compliment your child? they aren't complimenting you they're complimenting your child so it just seems weird to me...i don't know, maybe i'll just say "say thank you Lyric" hahaha
