Dad introduced me as his son.

Last night my dad made me and my sister go to a concert/party with him as designated drivers in case he or one of his friends needed one.
When he started introducing us I was expecting the usual "these are my daughters, jamie and tona" but no he decided to take me completely off guard and say "these are my kids, my daughter jamie and my son logyn"

I about fell over in shock, and had to try and keep from smiling too big.
That is the first time he's EVER acknowledged me as a boy or by my name.
