Ugh, mom!

I don't know why, but while I was driving to the movies tonight, I glimpsed a private little moment that just made me laugh. A mother and her 12-year-old son were waiting at the bus stop, he was wearing a tie and nice pants, obviously dressed up for something, and his mother took a look at him, licked her fingers and stuck down his hair. Of course he brushed her away and looked terribly embarrassed as only sixth graders can, but it was such a lovely little piece of humanity it just made me happy:)


  1. i did the exact thing to e. this morning and not only was he grossed out, he said "mom, don't worry about it, my hair always sticks up" :)
