musings in mayhem

writer, mom, tutor, superwoman

hhhhmmmm….a deux

I’m still feeling under the weather.  Throat and ears are iffy, but not too lousy.  Some days are more productive than others.  After errands galore yesterday, I ended up just lying down the rest of the day.

Today, I  didn’t really feel like getting up and out to go co-lead the youth group at my UU church. But we had a really good communication lesson about active listening, and all the teens seemed to really get something out of it. 

And I was dubbed ‘cool’. 

They like me, they really like me!  (just riffing Sally Fields’s oscar speech)

And Mr. Cynic said, “Of all the moms I know, you’re the easiest to get along with.” Publicly.

*heart all aflutter*

I must be doing something right.  

I played The Violent Femmes for him on the way to and from church.  Music lesson in cool for the day.  I thought he would like them for the bass heavy leads, and had to discuss lyric content.  The kind of lyrics most parents would not likely proudly share wth their impressionable youth.  He got it.
