    do your parents do this?

    So yesterday mom and I just got home from the barn. So we were both hot,sweaty,and tired. We both walk into the kitchen and my dad walks in and says *Oh...let me show you what I got from BJs(its a store that sells alot of things in bulk). He left all of the stuff out on the counter for display. He shows us the cookies,the pretzels,carrots,cherries.. So I was like...*we don't need a show & tell show*..


    Sometimes my dad will say *did you see the cat food I got*..so I would say *yes* Then he would say *did you try the cherries that I got. There really good.* so I would say *no*.


    Do your parents do stuff like that to you?

    Mine have never done that...but my mom always like states the obvious in a question. For example, I'll be putting my tall boots on and she will ask "Are you going out to ride?" Uhh, no I'm going for a jog in my tall boots. Not. It annoys me so much. I mean, she does it ALL the time.

    Sorry, went a bit off topic there! :P

    Hey, your parents are nowhere near as embarrassing as my dad. He goes out in a sarong (like a skirt), gumboots, an inside-out jumper (supposedly more comfy) and a huge straw hat. And then proceeds to start a conversation with everyone. That's when he remembers to get dressed before leaving the house...

    So many excruciating childhood memories...

    YES LOL, especially if they went to the dollar store.

    Look at these cans of tomatoes!! Guess how much?! A DOLLAR!!!!!!!!!!!
    Look, I got some batteries.... A DOLLAR!
    All of these cookies for A DOLLAR!!!

    It's so goofy, haha. We went to BJs for a few times while living in DC area and despite going shopping WITH them, they still put on a food fashion show lol..

    This.
    They want to reach out to you, be involved and show they care. They resort to really lame conversation when they're at a loss for what else to say or do.

    (no they don't ever stop LOL)

    It's a parent thing!

    And honestly... if I DIDN'T point out exactly what groceries I bought, all I'd hear for the next week was "is there anything to eat around here?" or "I'm hungry, what did you buy?". Don't even tell me that it's not needed because even if the stuff is right there, smack in front of them, nobody but me can find it.

    As far as quizzing.... I am guilty!!! Why? Because if I DON'T, I go outside and find chickens staring at an empty water container, pigs banging their empty feeder and cows off eating the neighbor's grass because the gate is wide open!

    Today I was trying to figure out why on earth it was taking a kid half of forever to wash out the 6 water buckets I needed for stalls. It wasn't..... she was putting the clean buckets back in the stack of dirty ones.
