“What have you been up to?”
“Oh you know, things. Um, we went to the park yesterday.”
“Did you get a job yet?”
And so starts 80% of my mother daughter conversations. We are too alike, know each other too well, worry about each other too much, to ever have a normal conversation that isn’t shadowed with every fight or comment we’ve ever used to cut each other.
This “game” seeks to help with that awkwardness of being an adult child. I wish that I knew more about my grandparents and parents. But every visit home seems too rushed, filled with events and traditions. We don’t have time to really sit down and talk – and I wouldn’t know what to say if we did.
This series of postal inspiration is for exchanging a set of letters with your parents or grandparents along a theme. If someone has a big birthday coming up this works especially well if you get one for several cousins or siblings so the lucky person is overwhelmed with letters!
