My mother came over last night to watch the little guy. Jonathan was with my husband at a golf match, and I had to take Nicholas to a meeting at school.
As I was getting ready, I overheard the following conversation between my 14 year old and my mother:
Nonna: So, where are you going?
Nicholas: We're going to Family Honor at the school.
Nonna: You're such a good student. What award are you going to get?
Nicholas: Uh, Nonna, I don't think you understand . . .
pause, pause, pause
Nicholas: You see, Family Honor is about sexuality.
Nonna was speechless . . . only because she was laughing so hard.
Then she started asking a million questions . . . and then my son was the one who was speechless.
There are just some things you don't talk to Nonna about.
