I picked my son up from school yesterday. You never know what our next conversation will be….
Adam: Mom, I am so mad at (insert friends name here).
Me: Why Son, did something happen at school?
Adam: Yes!! He told (insert another friends name here) to ask out (Beautiful girl everyone likes). And then, the next then we knew, he asked her out instead! What a jerk move to do to a friend.
Me: Wow, that sounds just awful. (In my I really could care less, but I am super interested Mom voice!)
Adam: This is exactly why I don’t date!!!
Me: I thought it was because you are in the 5th grade!!
Adam: I will date when I am in the 8th grade!
Me: How about don’t date until you are in college!!!
Adam: Mom, Do you ever want Grandchildren?!?
My Niece and I driving through town last night and passing a local restaurant:
Olivia: Stop!!! There is an old man eating dinner by himself!
Olivia: It is on my “bucket list” to eat with a lonely old person!
Me: Olivia, that is so sweet.
Olivia: I also want to be in a bar fight!
