On Weirdness and other oddities

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.
