cool parents

Mom says to me, "You're a pilot. He's a DJ. I bet you guys think you're going to be such cool parents."

"Well yeah we're going to be cool parents!"

"Okay. Well, we thought we'd be pretty cool parents too."

(confused) "Really?"

"Yes."

"In what way?"

...

(Mom) "Exactly."

Hahaha. My parents thought they'd be cool parents too. They weren't until I graduated from college.

well first you do definitely have cool parents!

But I relate... my parents are way cooler now. When I was a kid I don't think I could have named a single reason why they're cool, but now I "get" a lot of their accomplishments, we share a lot of attitudes.

I've resigned myself to not being a cool parent. I wasn't a cool kid, a cool teenager, or a cool young adult, so I don't have any reason to believe that should change.

Somewhere between the ages of 18 and 25, I got to be really cool. Which is nice because I was a nerdy kid so I've gotten to see both sides.

Okay, that's what I thought.

No matter how cool we are, we're not going to be our kids' version of cool. I remember thinking I wished my mom and dad were more like so-and-so's parents... but so-and-so thought her parents were lame, too!

Funniest thing I've read in I can't remember how long!

My husband has been asking me what sort of parent I'll be, and honestly I think I'm going to be a total bummer. As long as my kids don't doubt I love them, I can accept being a loser. Heck, I've never been cool before; why would I start now? ;)
