My daughter is so much cooler than me

by doodaddy on September 11, 2008

Not that I needed further proof of that, but here you go. This morning, she wouldn’t gimme five (which I taught her), nor would she give me knuckles (think Obama power fist bump, which I also taught her because I’m just that hip).

She held up her hand, palm facing her, waiting expectantly. So I held up my hand, palm facing me.

And she gave me ‘backwards five.” (Which she invented, and then taught me, because at 2-and-seven-months, she’s already got more cool in one pinky than I do in my entire body).

Such is our fate. And even if by chance a parent is cooler than the child, the child is convinced otherwise.

That is so cool.. and will probably become one of the unique things just between the two of you. I bet when she has her own kids, should she choose to, that she’ll teach that to them and will tell them how it was a special thing between you two when she was a little girl. Either that or she’ll decide in three years it’s too lame to keep doing.
