Advice from a client

I was meeting with a client's mother today and as I was about to leave, she said to me "You need to find a husband and have some kids!" Great advice from the 28 year old mother of four with two different men! I'm not sure what prompted the comment, but here were my reactions, one after the other:
1. An internal eye roll.
2. An internal "Hmmm...I had never thought of that!"
3. An internal thought to myself, "Awww, that's kind of sweet!"
4. An out loud, "I DO need to find a husband and have some kids!" :)

And than she proceeded to give me some advice on how to find that husband! To which I did give an external eye roll and told her that I'd find him when I was meant to find him! :) Good thing I like this mom, or reactions one, two, or three might have not been internal reactions!

That sounds pretty rude, so hopefully she meant well. If you didn't like her a good response could be "You need to find some birth control." I'm glad you are a good sport about it. :)
