I took Kiddo to her surgical followup appointment. Dr. Mark said she's doing very well and is cleared to start light running in 2 weeks. She's super excited.
On our way back to the school, she started talking about how everyone is weird. I said, "I don't know what you are talking about. I'm not weird." She stared at me. "You ARE weird Mom. You just gave me a noogie!" Yes, it's true. I had just done that. We both laughed and laughed.
Then I called my mom but dad answered and we chatted for a few minutes. He said something similar about how everyone was weird. I laughed and said, "I just had this same conversation with Kiddo!" I explained that I'd told her I wasn't weird and he said, "Oh you are too," or something along those lines. Yes, I know Dad. I was teasing Kiddo. I then said, "I guess I should embrace my weirdness."
This morning before I dropped her off, I told Kiddo I was embracing my weirdness. And gave her a hug.
