And so he comes home and says I’m buying a motorcycle once I’m 18! I know there much worse things that could happen to him once he’s reached the majority age, but riding a motorcycle, or any other vehicular suicide, comes pretty high on a mom’s “heart-dropping” list. I understand he will not choose to just stay home and knit, but I really really hope the motorcycle will not happen either. I’m still trying to adjust that he is out of the playpen, just about 6 ft tall, and it’s almost time to start shaving, and I’m totally not ready dealing with “hell on wheels” as my son’s companion and preferred mode of transportation.
There are a lot of other rides and strolls I’d rather offer him.
What’s Cooking This Week
Lots of soothing tea to de-stress after a nerve-wrecking motorcycle conversations with a 14 year-old. I have a nightly ritual to have tea and sweets to decompress and kiss the day goodbye. What’s in a cup now? Lemongrass, mint and rosehips with a side of chocolate to properly medicate me for what the future might bring. Oh, and there are liquor shots inside those chocolates too 🙂
