In which i got NO info

So Daniel came home last night for fall break.  I haven’t seen him since August although I have spoken to him.  Kevin wasn’t home yet but Keely, Daniel and I sat down for dinner.  Actually I cooked a dinner.  Yep, that’s why I’m such a good mom.


Me:                  so Daniel, tell me about your friends

Daniel:            what about them?

Me:                  do you have friends?

Daniel:            yes

Me:                  ok, so describe them

Daniel:            well there’s this guy Nick

Me:                  yeah

Daniel:            he’s from somewhere outside New York City

Me:                  Long Island?

Daniel:            no

Me:                  Westchester?

Daniel:            ummm…maybe

Me:                  and what’s Nick like?

Daniel:            he’s in engineering in Pratt (Duke’s engineering school)

Me:                  and?

Daniel:            he’s a nice guy

Me:                  okayyyyyy…anyone else?

Daniel:            yeah, there’s this other guy (name escapes me)

Daniel:            he’s in engineering too

Me:                  ok…what’s he like?

Daniel:            he’s a nice guy

Me:                  seriously Daniel? Is that all you’re giving me?

Daniel:            what more do you want?

Me:                  are they fun? Are they cute?

Daniel:            they’re fun and how am I supposed to know if they’re cute

Me:                  good grief…how about girls?

Daniel:            yeah, I know girls

Me:                  well, on your Facebook you said this one girl was your most favorite person in the world

Daniel:            well, she wrote that on my phone when she was putting in her number

Me:                  so she’s not then?

Daniel:            not what?

Me:                  your most favorite person in the world

Daniel:            NOPE, you are mom

Keely:             what? I thought I was!

Daniel:            ummmmm …

Keely:             after all, you’re mine Daniel

Me:                  hey, what about me?

Daniel:            this is too complicated

Me:                  so let me get this straight.  I know you’ve written 2 papers and taken 2 tests.

Daniel:            yeah

Me:                  … and I know you are playing club lacrosse and have at least 3 acquaintances

Daniel:            yeah

Me:                  and that’s all I’m going to get? That’s all my info?

Daniel:            yep

Me:                  it’s been two months Daniel!

Daniel:            I brought home my laundry

Me:                  oh.  Excellent. I’m so excited!

Daniel:            I knew you’d be happy

Me:                  have you changed your sheets ever?

Daniel:            not yet

Keely:             that’s disgusting

Me:                  why didn’t you bring them home?

Daniel:            I don’t know.  I forgot. I’ll change them when I get back

So there you are folks.  THAT’S how much info you get from a boy. With the girls I knew who their friends were, what they did and all about their life.  With Daniel, that’s as good as it gets.  Jeez!

    A typical dinner convo in my house with my 5th and 7th graders, both girls:

    Me- So how as school today??
    Me- What did you learn?
    Both- I dunno.
    Me- Well, did you GO to school today? (yes, rhetorical question, they know better than to NOT go to school)
    Me- So the teachers must have taught you SOMETHING, right?
    Both- Yeah.
    Me- WHAT??
    Both- I dunno.
    Me- *headtable*

    The funny part of all this? They both pull A’s and B’s in school, and are actually ahead in some classes.

    Whenever I ask my daughter what she did the night before, it’s always the same answer ~ “Oh, we just hung out.” WTF??

    My son (15) is exactly the same as Daniel. One-word answers with no detail whatsoever. And he wouldn’t ever change his sheets if I didn’t suggest his room might be stinky.

    And my girls (19 and 21) – I get waaaaay too much information about their lives. I don’t even need to be their Facebook friends!

    By the way, what did you cook for dinner?
