What is the point of having kids if not to find creative new ways to embarrass them all the time?! More than that, what is the point of keeping in touch with adult children if not to mine them for their updated knowledge on pop culture and technology?!
The answer to both these seemingly rhetorical question is: no, there is no point in having kids if you don't get to tease them a bit later on. After accepting years of free lodging AND free food, the least kids can do is answer three am Mom texts about Usher's tour dates.
