Confession of a bad mom…

Confession of a bad mom:  I think I’m a cool mom, but I’m pretty sure my teenager doesn’t think so.  He referred to cupcakes I’d made as “dank” last night. I looked at him confused, thinking he was insulting my baking skills. He said, “Don’t you know what ‘dank’ means?” I replied, “Yeh… dark, dreary, musty… the dank basement.” But it turns out (thanks to my husband’s investigation), “dank” in today’s teenage language means, excellent; high quality- often used by heavy pot smokers to describe good weed… which made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside as a parent.
