*sobs*


Running errands with my youngest. My clone. My baby boy. (Turning 16 in two weeks). As we were going about town I mentioned to him that "Captain Marvel" showed March 5th. I asked when he wanted us to see it.

He said, "Uhh, dad, I'm going to go see it with my friends".





I then spent the rest of the ride singing. . . . .




*sobs*


I've lost my little boy. . . . . .


He did turn to me after I sang and said. . . "How many years have you been waiting to sing that?"

Dad's not a cool Daddio. Embrace it. It is a sign of respect.
Maybe next time try trousers?

ETA I get the movie thing. I try to watch a movie with "young people" and they spend at least 15 minutes checking their phone during the movie.

Do like I do; I see great movies by myself behind their collective backs. Especially if we plan to see it together.

I found it helps with the unending "What's going on? What will he/she do? How did it happen?, etc."


Otherwise, welcome to the club, Old Man. ( See, it even has capital letters. )

Haha. My daughter gets MAD when I refuse to rewind a movie for the xth time, or to even make a resume of the missed moments, because of those pesky cells.

I feel your pain DB. I have a teenager daughter.

It's a sad day when Daddy becomes Dad.

And when "I love you Daddy" becomes "whatever Dad."

They come back though.

One door closes and another one opens. Just think of all the additional time you will now get to spend with your wife. Cuddle time. Back rub time. Sensitive talking time....

That's a coincidence for me. Today, my wife and I will drive our last and youngest to the airport. 16 also.

Flying up North to start a new life for himself.

That damn song will be in my head during the 4 to 5 hour drive to the airport.

Kind regards,

bally

Welcome to the officially old and uncool club.

Don't worry, in a few years when they need money/help you will be officially cool again.

That happened to me exactly once. We had a few of the kids over to watch a movie and one of my daughters started texting. I paused the movie. Eventually, she looked around and told me to just hit play. I said "No, your cellmate texting you is much more important than everyone else enjoying themselves watching a movie. Just tell us when you're ready sweety."

They leave their phones in the other room now if we're watching a movie.

To the OP... Congratulations!!!!

You are officially old and icky.

As someone else said, don't be sad... he won't be gone forever.

When they hit about 30 you'll wish they'd visit even when they don't need something...

Now you don't have to buy his ticket or refreshments. Always look on the bright side of life.

On a related note, congratulations and GOOD JOB on the diet!!! I can only assume the fact that your youngest is able to go off on his own to see a movie with friends means you've lost enough weight to permit your offspring to escape your gravity field and lead their own lives away from orbiting you like a collective of satellites.

Tonight me and the kids and the wife will be watching a movie of some sort. Inside it’s nice and cozy, snow storm outside, wood stove blazing. Cat sexually harassing stuffed animal...
Kitty, stop that!
Anyways, at least you noticed it happen.

the good ones come back eventually. I share a beer and a taste of good bourbon with mine when he happens by. usually about the time he is hungry and needs a haircut from his mom. But still damn good to see him OCCASIONALLY.

enjoy some you time, it's cool, you earned it.

He is not going to watch it with his friends but he didn't want to hurt your feelings and tell you that movie sucks.

They come back later.
My 28 yr old son just walked in.
His brother called and texted and called, and my daughter texts me every day. She works on a high end horse boarding stable ranch. We have fun again. 16 was bad though....
