How Old Do Our Kids Really Think We Are?

27 May


I just got back from picking up my two older, wonderful, extremely outspoken children from school.  My little one had been asking for a snack all day long while we were at home being lazy on this special Memorial Day.  Upon picking up my children I decided to stop at the store and out of the kindness of my heart buy them each a snack, as well as myself in anticipation of tonight’s Spurs game.  Once we were done traversing every aisle for the best of the best basketball game snacks, I paid for the items and we went on our merry way.   During our drive home I distinctly heard Salt N Pepa’s “Shoop” song playing on the radio, mind you the radio was really low, but these ears of mine can pick any popular song right away.  So what did a 31 year old mother do upon hearing this early 90’s hit? Yep, I blared the radio and began singing it at the top of my lungs trying to do some moves in the car as well (although not successfully).  I turned to my kids and tried to get them to join in, however, upon looking at their skeptical faces it dawned on me that they know NOTHING about this era of ever so popular music.  At that point my son looked at me and asked “Isn’t this from the 1960’s”?  I couldn’t have been more insulted!  I go through this pretty much on a daily basis, in which my kids sincerely believe that I am some sort of dinosaur, a relic from the 19th century and I come to the realization that it’s only going to get worse.  They haven’t even hit their teenage years yet.  Oh boy!

Sad. Funny. Truthful.

Combining depressing thoughts with comedy and brutal honesty makes for some interesting writing. I know at least one person other than me agrees so that's good enough for me.
