    But I *DID* teach him something...

    So I'm going to take a couple of college courses this fall, to learn some new tech skills.

    And my 17-year old son says, "Great! Then I can learn something from YOU for a change!"

    Me: "But I did already teach you something."

    Him: "??"

    Me: "You're potty-trained, aren't you?"

    :-)

    Love it!! My parenting motto for raising my teens was "always keep them on the edge of embarrassed", LOL! And we all laugh about those things now.

    Oh, I did also teach him to put the seat and the lid down. Hopefully his someday-wife will be glad of it!
