It is hard to connect with teenagers these days so the fact that I have been able to connect with my kids the last two days is amazing! Last night I cooked dinner with my daughter which was a lot of fun. She was worried about not doing things right which I told her was okay. We were both experimenting with a new recipe so neither of us really knew what we were doing. I think she enjoyed it as much as I did.
Tonight the kids went to dinner with their dad for his birthday and when they came home they were both pretending to be characters. My daughter was Batman and my son was Hal. So after talking in their characters for a few minutes they went upstairs. At 8:30 it was time for my son’s shower so instead of calling him by name I called him Hal. I told him it was time to go through his clean cycle. He immediately responded that he needed to go through a host body decontamination. My daughter responded by telling me that I was awesome. Needless to say my daughter thought that was the funniest thing ever. Apparently I’m the cool mom again!!
