I don't know about you, but when my children were small, we were always searching for new ways to "bond" with our kids.
Perhaps reading a book together, going outside for a "catch", building legos, solving a jigsaw puzzle, or riding a bike.
As they grew older, this became a little more difficult because, of course, they were more interested in spending time with friends than with mom and dad.
Of course we found this impossible to believe, why, being the cool, hip, baby-boomer parents that we are.
Now, we're lucky if we can get them to go out to dinner with us, and if they do, I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that we pay.
So, imagine my excitement when the news flashed the story last night that Ryan and Redmond O'Neal were arrested together for possession of drugs.
What a fabulous bonding activity. Maybe they'll even get to share a jail cell. Think of the hours these two could have to spend together, just shmoozing and sharing and well, simply being together.
Wow, the 21st century continues to surprise and delight me.
