I love my kids, but............

This morning I would trade anyone a 24 yr old red headed bookkeeper for, oh say maybe a cute little kindergartener.

This kid, yesterday texts me some gibberish that I didn’t understand.  Turns out she hit a lot of wrong letters because she was texting and driving.  frown   Then she finally called to say she got a shiny new worthless piece of paper in the mail.  She’s made the dean’s list for the first term of school.   She is taking on-line classes working toward her bachelor’s degree in accounting.

Let me just tell you...... that dean’s list honor makes her sound a lot brighter than she really is!!!!!  I’ve been telling her for months that she won’t be able to use her washing machine this winter because everything will freeze up.  It sits in her unheaded back porch.  I told her before it gets cold she’ll have to drain the lines, etc.

So, over the weekend we had temps down to zero.  Things FREEZE UP.  Yesterday she was concerned because she had water all over the back porch and her fancy high tech washing machine won’t work...  hmmmmm.  Give me credit friends, I did not say “I told you so!”  I wanted to, but I kept my mouth shut.

This moring, when I’m planning to do laundry and pack for vacation, guess who has MY washing machine full of HER clothes.  And, I don’t suppose my litte goth cashier will be far behind with her laundry basket.

I taught them at very very young ages (Like 8) to run the washing machine.  Somewhere along the line they seem to have missed some lessons about sorting and moving things on to the dryer and NOT LETTING YOUR WASHER FREEZE!

Nobody warned me when they put that little buncle of baby in my arms that diapers and saying “don’t put that in your mouth” were going to be the EASY parts of mothering.


Dean’s list honors kid—will trade for semi-literate kindergartener.
