I needn't have been embarrassed. In fact, many of my friends probably like my parents better than they like me! They are frequently asking how my parents are doing and saying things like: "You're parents are so nice!" "You're parents are so cool!" "You're so lucky to have your parents." "Can I come over? Are your parents going to be there?" "They're not? Oh yea, well I just remembered I have a previous engagement."
So back on topic....
I daydream about raising Charlie. We go through the loving and affectionate early years, maybe some terrible twos, but generally we have a fabulous rapport. We make it through the grade school years, me helping her with homework and enjoying her friendships with other little girls. Driving her all over creation and encouraging hobbies. And then. ONE DAY.
The look that can only be translated as: "Mom, you are SO uncool/behind the times/dumbo."
I know it's way too early to be concerned about this, and I'm not "worried" per se, just daydreaming after reading that post...
Is there any way to avoid this, Moms?
I'd like to hear from some of you who have been through this, or avoided this. What set it off? Or how did you avoid it? Anyone experience it and manage to nip it in the bud ("You think I'm uncool now, kid? Just wait until I show up at your school play wearing my dashiki!") and how did you do that?
