lol my kids used to say that if I sang in public, or talked to their friends, I embarrassed them so I sang louder, and when I pick them up at school I get out of the car and say their names very loudly, and talk and hug their friends, (they all love me) I dance in grocery stores. lol My kids are no longer embarrassed by me, they now join in, I guess they figure if you can't shut mom up you might as well join her.

She likes going to the movies with me and shopping though.
I have noticed that she acts ruder after talking to her dad on the phone. I never hear her saying much about stuff here, but I know he's said things in the past.
Someone told me once that kids turn into completely different animals as soon as 'teen' is added to their age. Hopefully this is just a stage.

my son told me I was embarrasing last year and I told him it was payback for all the times he embarrassed me when he was little.Mommy has a very long memory

Maybe it's a girl thing? I was embarrassed to be seen with my parents when I was a teen! My sons' don't have a problem with being seen with me at all. In fact, once while at the mall with my son we saw some of his friends in line at the theater.....I asked him if he wanted me to vanish while he said hello.....he just gave me a weird look and said "Why? Uh, my friends do know I have a Mother, ya know."
Absolutely! It's a no-win situation really. If you played the music she likes then she would be embarrassed that you are so old listening to her music. How should we dress, it's always either too old or trying to look too young. If I hit the clothes right, then it's my roots showing or she will see something in my teeth or I just said something stupid. One thing is for sure, kids don't put us on a pedestal!

My DD used to be like that in middle school. But now that she is a freshman and all her friends love me (lol they tell me all the time they wish they were my daughters), my DD thinks it's ok now. I am what I am and I'm not going to change. I still annoy her sometimes, but she doesn't say anything. Just rolls her eyes and shakes her head. Then I'll tease her and say, "hey if you don't like it, I'll replace you with Abby!" That's her BFF. She told me one time (which brought me to tears), that the best thing about me was that she can always tell me anything and I will listen with an open mind.
