|How Superman and I see ourselves (and each other!).|
So, my son comes home from work (!) and says, "Mom, I have to tell you something funny."
Me: "Okay, shoot!"
Valiant: "So, Silent Running by Mike and the Mechanics comes on the store radio and I say, "Hey, I love this song!" and the girl I was working with told me I was too young to even know that song, that she was older than me and she barely knew it!"
Me: "Really? That song is on my playlist."
Valiant: "Then she asked me how I knew it. I told her, "Well, my parents are kind of old."
Me: "We are?"
Valiant: "Yeah, Mom, you are. Her parents were born in 1972."
Me: "I'm old?!"
Valiant: "Well, don't feel bad. I did say "kind of" old."
Me: "Thanks, I think."
|How our kids see us...sigh.|
