Last week when I was at my daughter’s house, one of the twins asked me a question, “Nona, you’re her mom, right?” She pointed first to me then to her mom, my daughter.
“Yes, that’s right. I’m your moms mom.”
“Then you can tell her what to do, right? Since you are her mom, right?”
“Well, not exactly.”
The other twin said, “Why not?”
“When she was a little girl, I told her what to do but now she’s a grownup and I don’t tell her what to do anymore. I still offer her suggestions but she doesn’t have to listen to me.”
We never found out where this was going or if they wanted me to make their mom listen to me. We did get a chuckle out of it though.
Happy Mother’s Day!
