My son’s very favorite activity is to go “dribing.” Dribing consists of Pierson sitting/standing/ or jumping on the driver’s seat of a car (any car) while turning the steering wheel; honking the horn; and enabling every wiper, light, and radio button within reach. If allowed, he would dribe for hours-he loves it! During one recent dribing session, Pierson looked down at the console and noticed this picture which had arrived by mail from my grandmother the previous day. This picture was probably 1992, seventh grade & TWENTY years ago–Man, do I feel old. Pierson spotted the picture, ceased his dribing duties, grabbed the photo and stared.
I suppose I don’t blame him. He stared at the picture for a couple of seconds, a huge smile crossed his face. Followed by a laugh and a verbal observation that that warmed my heart. His statement was just three simple words, but probably something every mom aches to hear from her two year-old: “Mommy Look Funny.”
Yes, son. I do believed you nailed the 90’s on the head and all my roller-skating, leggings wearin’, cat t-shirt sportin’, perm de frizz, eyebrows of death, and brace face glory. Just you wait. Your time’s a-coming. And if you want, I’ll be happy to remind you of your kind words thirty years from now.
