Scene: Jason is sitting in the kitchen, working on his homework. He starts singing the “Poke you in the Eye” song (by the fabulous Flying Fish Sailors) that I use as the Pointy Sticks theme song. I comment that I need to finish the podcast tonight.
Me: Dude, your Mom podcasts…
Me: You know, there are all these mommy bloggers out there that blog about what their kids do. Like what they ate and if they pooped today. Can I do that? You know, like blog about whether or not you poop? (FYI, he is 14, not 2. So I wasn’t seriously going to blog about his bowel habits. I’m not that mean.)
Jason: *snorting laughter* No. That is just crazy. Those moms are nuts. Who wants to read about whether or not their kid poops? I bet if you look closely at their photographs, the background is a room with soft padding pillows on the walls. That is just insane!
I guess their will be no mommy blogging for me. Although he did say I can blog about his dates when he starts dating. I asked if I could post photos too, with the black bar across their eyes to protect their identity. He said I have to use more than just a black bar. I can give them nicknames though – like “trampy dressing girl” and “geek girl.” Sweet!
Speaking of geek girls, Ann? Jason’s ears perked up when I mentioned that your daughter is in an Anime club at school. He said to get her IM and to give you his IM and they can chat.
Signs of the future – fixing your kid up via IM. Ah, the joys of the teenage years.
(Update: Uh, ok. I fixed all the typos. Dr. Phil was on in the background when I typed this originally, and the Dr. Phil? He makes me a little crazy. Obviously, he was messing with my typing skills. Oops.)
