  • I'd be happy about that. Sure, she may just have said how handsome she thinks your husband is (inadvertently), but you can rest assure, he is YOUR man :D It gives me a sense of pride when people (other than his Mommy) thinks my husband is handsome.

  • Well, it sounds like a compliment...and hey, it's better than, "ZOMG, your boy...he's so cute. Who is his father?" When she knows you're married.

  • lol.... I've never thought about it myself.... but I would find it complimentary, personally, and not at all offensive.

  • Kids bring out the best in people. I think she was probably just trying to be nice to you and your cute son:)

  • Out of curiosity, does he look like his father to you?

    Answer by pinwheel at 9:25 PM on May. 6, 2011

  • I would laugh and say "Well I hope so, if he looked like me he would be a pretty goofy looking boy"

  • i would take it as a compliment

  • Yes, I would say that they are complimenting the parent who they say the child looks like.
    I volunteer in my daughter's classroom and one of her friends told me, "October looks just like you. That's what I always remember about October, she's pretty.' It was the cutest thing LOL (They're in kindergarten.)
