Sophia And I Hangs Out

Written May 12, 2021:

I was getting ready to go out and meet friends when Sophia asked where I was going. I told her I’m gonna go hang out with my friends for a while. She suddenly said she’d like to go. I said why not? I cannot believe I got a daughter old enough to hang out with me. I thought before long she is going to be like the sister that I never had. I have always wondered how to be close to her and at the same time still be an authority figure.

I read somewhere a parent could not be his or her child’s best friend, because there has to be some boundaries. Is it really not possible to be both? There are certain advantages to being chummies with my daughter, like maybe knowing more about her and what bothers her which will make it easier for me to guide and teach her. On the other hand, is not this an unhealthy attachment? I have always planned on letting her go and be her own person when she becomes an adult.

With my personality, I sure will try to be my daughter’s best friend. After all, I am a cool mom! But where do I draw the line between the two roles?

PS. Sophia, don’t forget your promise that I could hang out with you and your friends when you are older! Oh, I could not wait to embarrass you! Imagine a 48yo woman at the dance floor, swaying to the tune of whatever rock music is in then!
