Mother/Teenage Son Bonding Experience

I had today's post written out in my head but I have a doctor's appointment today and very little time so I decided to go with plan B instead (no i'm not going to the doc for Plan B).  Wow, that was poorly worded, lol.

Several months ago my teenage son and I were driving somewhere in the van (probably making another 10,000th trip to his high school).  I love my son to death, but sometimes there is that weird awkward silence as we don't always know what to talk about.  My son finally broke the ice and said, "Mom, look at that sign".

So I look to my right and there is a sign attached to a utility post that says, "I buy homes".

However, someone vandalized the sign and this is what it read: 
(I had to create this little beauty of a sign in PS as I could not take a pic since I was driving):


I immediately started to giggle and then both my 15 year old son and I were cracking up over this simple, but creative genius of a sign.  Yes, i'm probably too old to be laughing at this, but I couldn't help myself.   My son has my quirky sense of humor and that makes me so proud (and a little worried that he may blog someday and tell stories about his whackadoodle of a mother).

  2. I love this! My son is 12 and starting middle school this fall. Part of me is terrified of his impending teenage years. Okay, all of me is. Still, we are tight and also share a quirky sense of humor. I'm so glad to hear that you've preserved that connection. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I'm so glad he shares your sense of humor! I would much rather have a kid with a good sense of humor than one of those uptight kids who can't take a joke :) Thanks for commenting!

  3. That's pretty funny! Sometimes you connect with your kids over the craziest things. I look at my son (he's only 5) and I can't even begin to imagine him as a teenager. Part of me wants my kids to stay little but I really feel that I connect with and relate to them differently all the time as they develop themselves. I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I'm visiting after connecting with you on Twitter and I'm now following you via Linky, GFC and Pinterest. Hope you can come visit us too! Cheers,
