Why I Had Children

My 12-year-old daughter just walked into my office, carrying a cup of coffee. That she made for me. Herself. Without me needing to lift a single finger.

Nuff said.

[Edited to add: It was decaf, and she also made one for herself. Which makes this even more awesome...because I can count on it happening again, and often, since I don't have to wait for her to want to 'do something nice' for me. Her already-burgeoning love of coffee is going to make my life so so so much better.]

Start to worry if she brings you perfectly made one for herself! ;-)

Wow. I'm impressed. Not just that Em drinks coffee, but that she's responsible enough to make it... Like most parents, I tend to measure things by my kid, and while oven=350F for muffins is fine, boiling water is NOT FINE. Heh.

So I'm impressed. And very very happy for you! :-) Major wonderful milestone there!
