My son deserves a compliment too!!! Why leave him out?

Thought this was CM worthy

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I and our toddler son were recently out to dinner. A woman walked past our table to the family next to us and gushed about how "beautiful" the couple's daughter was. Their child was the same age as our son, who is just as well-behaved.
I found it hurtful that a stranger would compliment one child and ignore the family seated at the next table. My husband disagrees. Am I wrong to be offended? Do you think this was rude? -- FURIOUS IN FLORIDA

DEAR FURIOUS: I agree with your husband. I doubt the woman deliberately meant to slight your son. All her attention was simply focused on the little girl.

The woman shouldve walked around the 1 mile radius just in case toddlers feel left out.

I have two boys. My nieces are definitely favored. I honestly think its because they are girls and easier to "oooh and ahhh" over.

It is what it is. :\

Maybe your kid isn't that cute? You might think so, but it doesn't mean everyone does.
