This is how it goes
The knitting is away. This is day two.
In other news, the last niggly task was completed today and, dutududuh, I sat on my couch and watched a show with my spouse and my daughter. Ahhh.
A few months ago, we started to watch TV series on DVD as a medium for opening dialogue and relating with a teenager who is self-proclaimed odd. We started with a series she liked already – Buffy the Vampire Slayer – and then introduced a similar genre of our own, trading off episodes and striving to understand what was liked about each. Well, so far only one – Dark Angel – but it was so short-lived, another series must come in behind. I’m toying with Alias. If my teenage daughter is going to be hooked on a TV show, the main female character better have some chutzpah.
Now, I don’t advocate TV as a medium, but since we started this ritual, we talk more, she shares more, we bake occasionally, and she crocheted a scarf…this is progress people, and I’ll talked what I can get to bridge the distance.
Tomorrow, I knit. And perhaps some butt-kicking female leads are in order. Or baking. We shall see. Anyone out there have any similar channels they use to bridge the teenaged gap?
