Daughter: Can you come down and wait for the bus with me?
Me: I can today, but probably not every morning.
Daughter: You’re not going to wear that are you?
Me: No, I can put a sweater on.
(I put the sweater on)
Daughter: Is that what you’re wearing?
Me: Yes. I need to shower and get ready for work after you go. I’m not going to get dressed and put makeup on to wait for the bus and then do it again.
Daughter: You’re not going to take any pictures or anything are you?
Me: Can I just take one? I take one every year.
Daughter: Well, okay, but take it before the bus comes, and you have to kiss me goodbye before the bus comes, and no sloppy lipstick kisses (as if that’s EVER happened at 8 in the morning), and don’t wave good-bye or anything, just stand there.
Question #1: She’s 10 and I’m already embarrassing her? How precocious of her/me.
Question #2: I got up for this?
