You did good with providing body movements, close up shots and facial expressions that help illustrate character emotions. But the lip movement for the other character's later lines needs more movement.
the camera zoom in at the beginning is a fun choice, the fists slamming could be much faster and come in a few frames earlier too
I like the idea of the initial camera angle and action. I think it was funny! The movement though could use a lot of work. It feels very floaty. Add more keyframes in to solve this. Try filming reference as it always helps with timing and subtle action. I noticed you did add blinks along the way on action which is good but remember to add blinks even if they're just talking and not moving their heads as the human eye does get dry really quick.
I like the animation for the daughter but the mom could use some polish in the graph editor, especially with the arm movement
Lovely actual staging of action. I like that something is actually happening during the course of this exchange. It also makes me wish for just a little pay-off regarding the action. Lovely work!
The carrot cutting animation has excellent anticipation to it. The pink T-shirt characters' hands do not have any slow in or slow out and the motion feels linear. Overall, a really good piece.
