Milestones

Scene: Yesterday after school, Bug, Bear and I are siting around the kitchen table having a snack.

Bear: Mom? How come you and Mrs. Best Friend are always talking lahk thees?

Me (calmly): Because it's hysterically funny.

Bear: No, it's not.

Me: Yes, eet eez.

Bug: *giggles*

Me: See? Hilarious.

Bear: Mooooooooom. It's embarrassing and really annoying.

Me: Huh. So yew don't wunt me doin' thees in frunna yer frenz? Nope, still funny. Sorry.

Bear: Arrrrg!


Aww, she's embarrassed by her mother... a true milestone on the road to teenagerdom. Being mortified by your parents' behavior is practically a rite of passage. Next will come criticism of how I dress! I can hardly wait!

And, for the record, her friends think I'm quite amusing.
