Last night Ian came down to the living room while I was watching TV and asked if I would find some music to listen to. I went straight to the Music OnDemand stations and the first one had Totally 80's. One of the first songs listed was Bon Jovi's Prayer so I played it. After that Ian asked me to play that song over and over which I did because he was so cute singing and dancing to it.
I think we were on the fourth or fifth time when Dave came in from work. Emma ran back to greet him and he asked her what we were doing and there conversation went like this.
Emma: Mom and Ian are listening to that old 80's music stuff.
Dave: They're what?
Emma: You know that old music from the 80's. I mean it's not bad bad I like it, but it's old 80's music.
Then this evening as Emma was finishing her dinner and I was cleaning up Emma and I have this conversation.
Emma: Mom if you ever have a day you don't have to work and you come into my school you better not embarrass me.
Me: I had better not do what? (said in a very Sterne tone of voice)
Emma: I just don't want you to come into school and embarrass me.
Me: Have I ever embarrassed you?
Emma: No I just don't want you to.
Me: Ok I'll try my best not to embarrass you.
If those kinds of conversations don't make you feel like a mom and old I'm not sure what else would!
