As many of you know, my parents just moved to Denver. It’s been wonderful and stressful all at the same time.
- My dad made Mark’s whole family green chili stew = wonderful
- My mom went to a Dr. appointment with me = stressful
All of the sudden, I was a child again with feet dangling off of the front of the physicians table (you know, that REALLY uncomfortable table in the middle of the room with the strip of paper on it that inevitably crinkles loudly every time you shift your body). I was so annoyed that my mom was there. Not that my mom was even being annoying, but I was totally having a control freak moment and instantly became a snotty nosed brat!
I like my independence (I came to Denver by myself to go to college when I was just 16). I like to have the final say. I like my feet to touch the ground when I sit in a chair (I’m only 5’2″ so that doesn’t happen all of the time).
Do your parents ever agitate you for no reason other than making you feel like a child again??
