Ansy for adult conversation


So, it's still summer holidays here. And although the days are fun and somewhat relaxing, some days are abit more challenging than others. Because son is getting bored.

We went out to eat at the local diner and our conversation had been reduced to this;

We're sitting staring at each other. I'm quietly enjoying my coffee and have no need for conversation. However, my 'lil dude in crime did.

He - "I need cheese."

sip....

He - "When I'm 13, I can watch the Simpsons."

sigh... desiring some REAL conversation...

Me - "Tell me something really interesting! Something I haven't heard before."

He - "Your roots are showing."

silence

He - "I want a driver's license."

He - "I want chicken."

my eyes glaze over about now...

He breaks out singing, "Peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time, way---YA! way---YA! Peanut butter jelly and a baseball bat! (sound effect of POW)"

Oh gosh, I need adult conversation. I'm dyin.

OH can I ever relate!! However school is now back in session for us... I thought I would have more "adult" conversation when I had teenagers. What was I thinking? Oh yeah we have boys, 3 of them. Have you ever noticed that conversing with a male is sometimes rather stilted and often times odd.

I bet you get lots of odd tidbits from your son, right? Our 11 year old has been regaling me with facts about reptiles, amphibians, and the duck-billed platypus. The rest of my "adult" conversations deal with food or laundry such as...

"Mom, have you washed my uniform?" while absently looking at the laundry.

"Mom, can I borrow $10?"

"What's there to eat?"
asked while looking through the refrigerator.

I remember those conversions. The ones where they are always so honest. Mine would poke the padding around my middle and then giggle. Lovely. Now, they are older and the conversation starts with a phone call.
Me: hello?
him: Hi, I need money for books.
me: oh, by when?
him: now, I'm at the bookstore
me: great...how much?
him: $400
I'd rather him poke my middle.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
topic but I had to tell someone!
