Mrs. Thing didn't want to get up, so I had to PICK her up (she's 13 btw) to get her up. I told her to hurry and get dressed and I would make her coffee in a travel mug. I make her coffee and where is she? Laying on the couch!!!! so I tell her hurry up, you have 15 min to get ready and over to A's house. She is taking FOREVER! I swear until this.child I have never known someone to take 8 min to pee! She is moving slower than molasses (in Minnesota in the middle of winter) finally mom has had enough and I walk her to the door,give her a hug and kiss, tell her "I love you baby,.have a great day at school" hand her, her backpack (which I put her clothes in) coffee and shoes. I stood there and she gave me this look like, Wtf just happened?? I said you better hurry hun, your ride is gonna leave. She slipped her shoes on and ran across the street as they were getting in the car.
The look on her face was priceless lol!!!! I'm hoping this teaches her a lesson about being on time.
So there's my mommy confession for the day haha, off.to have another cup of coffee.
Eta: so apparently letting my teen have coffee is like cps worthy so let me explain, she has ADHD, the coffee has the.opposite effect on her, it helps keep her focused, this enables us to keep her meds at a low level. I would much rather her be on a low dose of meds and drink coffee then have her on a high dose of meds. Side effects from the meds increase the higher the dosage, coffee has no negative side effects, caffeine compared to the meds is a no brainer.
If you still have a problem with the fact my kid drinks coffee too bad.
