My Mom is Short Enough to be Mistaken for a Kid

My Mother is 46 years and I'm 22 years. I'm her son. When we're hanging out together, just us, people think she's my kid. I can understand why. She's 3'8 and has a youthful face, and I'm 5'11 with a normal face in comparison.

When we're out to eat, my mom goes to get drinks and has to show here ID every time. You'd think after the many times she had gone out around town they would remember her face. They just don't even bother. Luckily she orders off the kids menu just fine, never giving it away that she's actually an adult.

My Mom is a teacher, and she teaches a high school math. I took her class when I got into her grade, grade 11. She gets jokes and teases thrown her way within the first week of the class starting untill her students get bored the second week. She made a note to mention to her school to notify that she a midget. Yes. Yes. She doesn't mind the word at all. She'll also except dwarf as well. She got use to those words. No big deal.

I find it funny when she uses people's assumption to get the kids discount at many places, movie theaters, going to the zoo, getting into the public pool, the putt putt course, and trying on kids clothes at the store. Just because she can she wears Disney themed clothing like she still a kid.

I know most people post about embarrassing problems or situations in life, but I'm just bragging about having a really cool mom. She's really calm about her situation. Ask me anything, (AMA). I know you want to.

    When she told us she was 32 with 2 kids, divorced and very available. Mom started holding my hand and politely asked her to stop 'coming on' to her date.

  • Is she attractive That could be kind of kinky and wild.

  • Anonymous here...
    I guess she's attractive.

    Dad works all the time so when mom and I are out, people think we're a couple.

  • Anonymous here....
    What comments do they make? Do you go along with it instead of alway correcting them? What places do you two go to together?

  • Before covid we'd go to the movies, I was 14 & 15 and tall. The person at the ticket booth would say my date is beautiful. Mom would just smile. Come to think of it, she'd hold my hand. At restaurants, our server would start out by saying what will is your date having. Stuff like that. I can tell it makes mom's day when people compliment her. She does tend to show PDA and I can't remember her correcting anyone that thought we were together as a couple.

  • PDA? What does that mean? You two sound like a cute mother and son duo. I bet Mother's Day is more interesting when people think you two are a couple.

  • PDA = Public Display of Affection

  • I hope it didn't get too weird. What was one time is got weird, but you two didn't see it until it was already over? What was the most embarrassing time the confusion happened?

  • I can't think of an embarrassing time. She just acts like mom. When we're together, she likes us to hold hands and sometimes she puts my arm around her. She kisses me on the cheek. She's always done that stuff.
    What embarrasses me most is when she tries to hook me up with a girl my age. She'll say, "Do you have a boyfriend? Do think my son is handsome?"

  • LOL. My Mom is the same. When girl find out she's actually my mother, it's a good laugh. She notices when people mistake here for a kid. Sometimes she plays along as a joke, sometimes she doesn't. It almost always ends in a laugh.
    Does she ever take advantage of her hight in any way?

  • She sounds hot, I’d like to poke her!

  • Gross man

  • All whites were once black people who across the generations improved their races.

    Latinos are 25% of the way through, Asians 50%, Greeks 75%, and many blacks have yet to begin. Italians on the other hand, fell back to 1% of the way through.

    Whites are the ones who made it, and now all the halfies and yellows want our sperm. Take it in a sample box, not down your throat.
