You know how when you look at a baby boy and think, “awww cute” and then look at a man (such as your husband or boyfriend) and think, “awww shit-head” and then wonder at what age cute baby boys cross into that men-are-from-mars-state, never to be
trusted understood again?
Well I think I have the answer.
The following text between my son and I clearly demonstrates his newly acquired man-skill for saying what he THINKS I want to hear.
Me: Everything ok?
Me: Why? What’s wrong?
Son: You’re not here.
A heartfelt note to my future daughter-in-law: I did not teach him this.
