Psycho Chinese Batman


My college daughter just texted me and said "Where's your new post?"  

Me:  "I haven't written one."  

Her:  "Mooooommmmm."  

Me:   "Tell me what to write about."

Her:  "Psychology.  China.  Batman."

Hmmmm.   Okay.   The Psychology of Batman in China.   Or maybe she just meant "Write anything, I don't care.  Just write!"  

So, here's my attempt at writing just anything.  

Yesterday I went downstairs to my daughter's room to watch a little TV - I really didn't want my husband to know I was watching "Real Housewives of New Jersey" - he wouldn't understand.   As I was lying on her bed, I realized that it wasn't really the TV that drew me to her room . . . I just missed her.   

So, as I watched crazy Teresa verbally beating up on Melissa, and Melissa pulling up her top so as to avoid a wardrobe malfunction, and holier-than-thou Caroline standing in the background shaking her head in disgust, I thought of my daughter . . . and smiled.   Grateful she's not a real housewife of New Jersey.

  4. I get that! Sometimes I go into the room where my daughter grew up and I read or take a nap on the bed. She had a lovely south facing window which is particularly nice on a sunny but cold winter day. I love laying on the bed and remembering when she lived there.
