What are my family "mehs?" They are very few, but all relate to the inevitable barrage of questions (yes, you really only need a minimum of two people to be able to barrage) related to my marital status, my child-bearing status, my living location (i.e., not NYC) and - even to this day - my employment and my attire. Yeah, my parents care about what I am wearing.
I know in the eyes of a parent, you will always be seen as their little child regardless of age or financial status. But I can't help but to smirk/grimace when they still give me money stashed in a card for my birthday, won't let me pay for any meals, and my mom pats me on the shoulder and tells me "your dad wanted me to let you know that it is OK to spend some money and buy yourself some nice clothes - at least for work." Uh ... what does this mean about the way my parents think I am dressed?
I know we all love our families dearly, especially over the holidays. But I can't be alone here, so please spill - is there any little thing you don't love about going home for Christmas?
