Tonight would be a perfect example. I called her to tell her about something that Noah told me earlier. She calls me about 10 minutes later and we had this conversation:
Mom: "Katelyn, you did you watch Where did You Come From?"
Me: "No! I was watching Phineas and Ferb because Noah told me I had to."
Mom: "Oh well I meant to call you when it started. It's really interesting. It's about the
Holocaust." She then went to explain the show while I watched the last 10 minutes.
Me: "I'd like to go there (Germany).'
Mom: "I'm not flying to any other country sorry."
Then I sent her this picture of my dinner of popcorn.
Which led to the following conversation about popcorn over texts:
Mom: Yum. That's my kind of supper.
Me: It's delish.
Mom: Umm I am trying to lose my freshman 15 here. (This is a joke in our house
because I lost 10lbs when I went to school and Mom gained my freshman 15 :P)
Me: Well I am visually feeding you!
Mom: You're making me crave butter (Our weakness)
Me: Well just think how good you'll look in our family pictures.
Usually I call her during my break from class and then we sit on the phone and gossip for an hour. My mom and I are really close like that. Being 5 hours away hasn't stopped us from discussing what's for dinner and how my brothers are driving her crazy. :)
Love you Mom!
