My beautiful bald-headed boy was fighting off an achy flu. This meant we had a pleasant weekend of him just lying on the couch, sleeping intermittently, watching TV and chatting with his parents amiably. On Sunday he felt better, and he and his girlfriend announced they were making us dinner—steak tacos and quinoa mixed with brown rice and sweet potato. The taco fixings included avocados, chopped onions, shredded cheese, sour cream and salsa. My husband and I gave each other secret smiles. This is a lovely pass we have come to in our life as parents. And our son's gf is a sweetheart.
