Conversation with my 18 year old daughter last night:
ME: Hey Jenna, can you please make me some of your chai tea?
JENNA: But I only have 30 left!
ME: Actually you have 20.
JENNA: But I only have 20 left!
ME: No wait, you had one today…19.
JENNA: *sigh* But I only have 19 left!
ME: Pleeeeeze, you’ll be my favorite teenaged daughter.
JENNA: *narrowing eyes* (she’s my only teenaged daughter)
ME: C’mon, I have all this drawing stuff all over me and am soooo comfy in bed.
JENNA: I’m trying to study.
ME: Awww thanks baby, you’re such a sweetie.
JENNA: No, I said I’m…
ME: My heart bursts with love when you do such sweet things for me.
ME: I feel so lucky. In fact, I’m going on Facebook right now to tell the world what an awesome kid I have.
JENNA: Mom! I’m not making it!
ME: *mumbling while typing* sweetest daughter in the world…making me tea…feeling so loved…
JENNA: *irritated sigh* I’M NOT MAKING YOU TEA!!!
ME: I’m just gonna sit here and wait excitedly for my delicious tea…thanks again baby…love you.
ME: Oh my gosh, I think I’m actually tearing up because of how sweet you are.
JENNA: AAAARRRRRGGGGG FINE!!! *bangs around kitchen making tea*
ME: *giggling quietly to myself*
JENNA: *brings tea in and puts it on my bedside table*
ME: Oh…tea? Ummm why?
JENNA: *crosses arms and glares at me*
ME: Well…since it’s here I guess I’ll have to drink it. Next time you should ask if I want some though…and shouldn’t you be studying?
