my husband likes me

james, ava and seth are in one car with me and following us to my paren'ts house is ryan in his car with aaron. sometimes aaron's 15-year-old influences ryan's inner 15-year-old self and they become 15-year-olds together. so of course, if there were ever two 15-year-olds driving a car together and the driving 15-year-old liked the girl in the car in front of him what do you think he would do?

why nudge her with his own car, of course. but seeing as he is 15 and not really allowed to drive, we all know what's going to happen. he is going to do two things: 1) actually nudge her car with his own like an idiot and 2) nudge her car harder than he wanted to nudge her car because he is both 15 and an idiot.

so my car gets "nudged". i feel it, of course and in my irritation i say aloud, "what is wrong with him?"

james responds, "he's probably been drinking again."

i look at him shocked and he grins to show me he's joking (of course he's joking). so it has happened: the youngest child is joking with the oldest child and we are laughing together. this family is getting old.

welcome to our ranks, james.

Did you just called Ryan an immature idiot?

:D First, it's cute that Ryan nudged you -- if a bit juvenile and probably annoying at the time.

Second, I love that my siblings are getting older and that we're "friends" now. There's a whole new dynamic now that we're more equals than me being the "boss" taking care of them. It's great! I suddenly have 5 new best friends!
