Oh the joys of dinner conversations with teenagers.
Last night my two youngest teens were conversing about dating. Here’s how that went down (paraphrasing) –
Daughter: You know that I heard you have a girlfriend. Are you dating?
Son: What do you consider dating?
Daughter: You know, going in a car to places together.
Son: Well I guess we’re not yet.
Daughter: I have to approve of any girl you like. I’m the sister and I’m supposed to know these things and you didn’t tell me!
Son: Well I have to approve of your boyfriends. Wait….you don’t have a boyfriend. I have to….approve….of your cats.
Needless to say I about spit my food all over the table. Comedic relief when least expected.
The Universe gifts us with moments at just the right time :).
