My Parents Were The Bomb.Com

November 20, 2009

i have started to realize one thing:
my parents are becoming my friends.

not all days of course.

sometimes they still like to tell me what to do or that i need to eat better because i have zero nutritional intake - but a lot of days....
most days
my parents have become more like my friends.

instead of sitting down to talk about curfew,
boys that should remain entirely off limits,
or grades that aren't completely perfect -
they've started to talk to me about themselves,
and not just so i could walk away with a lesson learned --
but just so i could know more about who they were;
what they were like aside from "my mom" or "my dad"
but as people, as individuals, and at one point, as kids.

and just a few days ago, i just found this totally great website called:
My Parents Were Awesome

i wish i had an awesome picture of my parents somewhere around,
but unfortunately i don't.
this website has hundreds of fun pictures like these though,

and maybe show a picture or two to your own parents.
they might have a few just like them too.

That's so true! It's weird to think of my parents as kids and stuff.

I love learning about them though! This past summer I was cleaning out our garage and flipping through my dad's highschool yearbooks when I saw some crazy stuff. This girl had been obsessed and like stalking him after he broke up with her. I won't go into the whole story, but it was pretty crazy.

I liked learning about him when he was younger, his crazyness before my mom! Thanks for the web referral!

These pictures are wonderful. Haha parents are so great.

p.s. I knew it was you at Cafe Rio! I couldn't place you for a couple minutes, and then I didn't know what to do because I know you, but I don't....
We were on our way somewhere, so I had to jet, but really next time let's say hi ok?

Isn't this blogging world funny?
