Phone Home

Lot's of posts today - but it's been a day filled with stories .

My son, Ryan called me today. I always get anxious when he calls. In my mind I'm saying, "What's wrong?" but I know I can't say that to him. So, I try to be patient by saying "What's up?" He's like, "Nothing".. (and in my mind, I'm like then why are you calling me.. I love hearing from you but if you have something to tell me.. just say it.. because he is a guy and guys just do not call - even their mothers). So, he's all like "I'm on break (he works at the Gap), just wanted to see how you are" (again, he's 22, and a guy.. and he just doesn't do this).. so I'm like "I'm good" (but get to it.. I know you have something to say)... and here it comes, " Well, I've been learning about the housing crisis, and I was just wondering how you are doing with your house?" (For those of you who don't know, I just bought my first house a year ago) Me, "I'm doing fine with my house. " Son, "Well, what type of financing did you do, adjustable or fixed rate?" Me, "fixed rate". Son, "Good- so you didn't do an adjustable rate (sigh of relief). Well, we're learning about this in class, and I hadn't really been paying attention until now, so I just wanted to make sure you were ok - sounds like you knew what questions to ask, and have it under control, well, your phone is starting to break up, I have to get back to work, I will call you later when I get off work"...

Wow, he's becoming an adult.. it's just so cool! (BTW, he will not call me when he gets off work. It'll be another week or so before he calls me. Although, I will probably "text" him during the Cowboy game tomorrow because that is just how I roll)

How sweet. That put a smile on my face. My son is younger than yours but I can still relate, and I like times when my kids show that they are thinking about other people too:)

just making sure I left a comment. Do you have to approve comments before they are published?
