I’ve briefly mentioned before that my step-dad and mom are currently raising an adorable toddler, Gracie. I’ve found it so intriguing to watch my parents, parent. It’s almost as if my mom and I have done a complete role reversal. She’s over there changing diapers and putting in pig-tails and I’m kicked back living as closely to retirement as I can.
It’s made for some interesting conversations. Last night, I called several times attempting to FaceTime with Gracie before bed. My mom apparently had the night off of child-rearing duties and was living it up at the bowling alley. After multiple failed attempts, I finally got ahold of my stepdad. “Hey Jon! Mom let me know you were with Gracie. What are you guys doing?” “Oh, Gracie is currently sitting on the toilet pooping…”
And with that, I quickly ended the call, cozied into bed and raised my hard cider…to potty training.
