Conversation with 14 year old Daughter1


Setting:  Kitchen, evening.  All 4 kids have been barked at to clean up their breakfast and after-school snack messes

Mom (with lingering frustration):  Thank you, Daughter1 for finding more things to clean up, even if they are messes you didn’t make.

Daughter 1:  Thank YOU Mom, for complimenting me loudly and sarcastically to make a point about everyone else not working fast enough.

Other 3:  (eye rolls, head shakes, general discontent)

Mom:  Thank YOU Daughter1 for making me laugh when I’m in a really bad mood.

Daughter1:  Thank YOU Mom, for setting me up to make a twitter-worthy comment.
