Yes, my jaw dropped indeed.
Here's someone who's been a mom for years, asking someone like me who doesn't have a child (well, a human child) on how to deal with her child. Of course, before I responded, I told her that she knows more about that than I do (one's gotta be truthful before giving out advice). But she said that I'm smart. Why does it matter whether or not I have a child? And yes, she did say I gave her pretty good ideas and sound suggestions, which she'll actually go for with her kid.
Color me flattered.
