Me: What should I blog about?
Aidan: Blog about ME!
Me: Okay, hold still and I'll take some pictures.
This is Aidan. She is my teen-aged child.
She likes the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Ben Folds, salt & vinegar potato chips, watching episodes of House and Bones online, sitting in her room in the dark, and texting with her boyfriend.
She is a vegetarian who doesn't exactly eat much in the way of vegetables.
She is wicked smart and funny.
She sings. She plays the guitar. She writes short stories.
I have a hard time remembering what she was like, even just five years ago.
She will not always live in the same house as I do.
Sometimes, that makes me very, very sad. Sometimes, not as sad.
I have a hard time believing I'm part of the two-person team that made her.
I sure do like her though.
