Mom Grows Up

I encouraged my Mom to watch Hereafter the Matt Damon movie. 15 or 20 minutes in she remarked Matt’s “superpowers are kinda like Dead Zone.” Woah, that’s a really astute reference. Brought a tear to me eye you know?

You work so hard, investing time, bringing home all kinds of pop culture and making your parents less parenty and more functional members of society who are able to drop timely and witty references.

Little moments like this let me see the fruit of all that labour.

I’m encouraged to work even harder.
