Embarrassing Parents

When you’re in seventh grade, what could possibly be more embarrassing than your parents? Aparently nothing.

Tonight’s dinner conversation:

Dad: “Oh, by the way, Leah, I emailed Mr. H. to let him know I can come in for your science class.”

Leah: “What? Why?”

Dad: “Because he’s interested in having a parent volunteer come in.”

Leah: “But that’s so embarrassing!”

Dad: “Why? What do you think I’m going to do?” His voice gets high and babyish. “Talk about tucking you into bed?”

Leah: “Nooo, but it’s so embarrassing.”

Dad:  “Why? What’s embarrassing about me?”

Leah: “You don’t even know because you’re you. You can’t know what’s embarrassing about you.”

We get it. We exist. What could be worse? (Oh so many things, but she can’t think beyond Dad in the classroom. Horrors.)

Recommended Parent Blogs

If you’re a Northwest parent and you’re looking for fun places to go this summer with your kids, I recommend visiting Cascadia Kids for ideas and inspirations. Lora Shinn, the founder of this family travel blog, is a Seattle-based freelance writer who loves family travel.

But family travel articles are hard to publish, so she started this blog for the love of it and to help out the rest of us who have no family travel publications to turn to. (Of course the beauty of a blog is that it’s up-to-the-minute up to date).

Why “Cascadia” and not “Northwest”? Besides recommending areas in Washington and Oregon, she also covers southern B.C., the Lower Mainland, an area not nearly enough Northwest families think to visit. Well written and meticulously accurate, this blog is a great resource for Northwest regional parents. Check out her recommendations.

Another blog I learned about recently is The Fun Parent, a blog started by a mom who wants to pass on her recommendations for fun things to do with your kids (especially helpful when your brain has gone on auto pilot). This blog is aimed at the younger set, 8 and under, and is geared for anyone caring for kids.
