Find a Conversation

I have a wonderful 16yo son, well behaved, good in school, nice friends, gives us no problems except for the occasional mouth.
In the past few months he has been talking nonstop with my husband about cars, sports, guy movies, girlfriend advice, etc.... but not much to me about anything. He esp. avoids the girlfriend situation; doesn't want me involved AT ALL.
Yesterday he jokingly said to me, "Your job is over, Mom. Time to turn it over to Dad." But, no joke!
Reflecting, I find my conversation to him to be more in the lines of "did you do this, did you do that?".... since I am the one more in charge of his daily life, with husband working.
He definitely doesn't want to "do" things with me -- fear of being seen with his mother, mostly.
