Things they say....
« on: February 16, 2017, 01:10:57 PM »
Today my teenage daughter has paid me the best compliment ever:

"If I had to choose to be like anyone, it would be you"

It's not often I'm speechless but this left me a little choked. She's fairly loving anyway but is still teenage and '├╝ber cool',  something parents would never ever be. For years she's checked carefully what I'm wearing before I go near her school, she wouldn't let me drop her off in my campervan anywhere near her friends and she's raised an eyebrow at my latest projects.  It's so difficult to feel loved when they get into this stage.

See - they DO come out of !

That's both fabulous and scary all at the same time.

I bought the ne of those all in one capsule coffee machines with a milk foamer thing last week, and this morning mine wanted to make me coffee, but I was post coffee. She says she will make me one tomorrow morning. I will update next time I'm caffeinated

After explaining exactly how and when (9am) to make the coffee last night, my morning went as follows.
6:41am. She comes and asks me how to turn on the mashine. I tell her it's early, my alarm hasn't gone off yet and to wait til it does at 9:00am. But I grab a snuggle, she reveals she's been awake for ages (an hour?) and aks to watch TV.
7:24am. She comes and asks if it's time yet.
8:32am. Is it time yet?
9:00am. My alarm goes off and she starts making coffee with a constant question and answer session being shouted through the flat (can I put the lid down? Which button is it? Etc etc)
9:01am. I get a pefect cup of coffee delivered.
9:05am. She asks if she can use the capsual tea machine to make herself truit tea and makes it.
9:40am. She asks for breakfast, cereal, which she is capable of making, but because she made coffee I have to make the cereal. At this point she is starving because she has been awake for 4 hours but never thought to make cereal or eat from the ever present and ever open fruit bowl.

But, coffee in bed, and it's not even mother's day.

She just made me a second mug and asked me to pretend to be the queen and her the ladies maid.

I might get used to this

Still don't understand the whole awake a 5am at the weekend but unwakeable at 6:45am during the week thing.
