Bright moments

This weekend we were in the car for a longish drive so there was more talking and less listening to music than usual.  During the course of our conversation as a family, this gem occurred between myself and Alex.

"Mom, would you consider yourself a hipster?"
"No.  Not really."
"What about a hipster mom?"
"Again, not really, but why are you asking?"
"Because compared to all the other moms I know, you are way more of a hipster than any of them are."


When he wants to, this boy whom I love, hate and feel intensely connected, can be utterly and completely charming.
