Well, the day I got the car I had DD (darling daughter) take the morning bus -- she doesn't like the morning ride and "tolerates" that afternoon bus.
Tuesday was my 1st morning driving.
"Are you taking the bus or riding in the Jelly-Bean?"
Eyes roll, big sigh, "...ride with you"
I cracked silly jokes about the car the whole way. Explained why I was "shifting" , not that she cared but I knew she would ask soon enough.
She is NOT a morning person - I AM ! So I sometimes just do stupid things that I KNOW annoy her.... because eventually she will be a full blown Teenager and will put me through hell
I will get her now and then it won't bother me later.
I had to go get her at a friends house after work Tuesday. Showed off my Jelly-Bean to the Mother - DD was not impressed and wanted me to stop talking about it and just GO.
Guess who got driven to school this morning..
I guess it isn't KILLING her so she will ride in it. and frown about it.
I did make her smile this morning as I unplugged from the house "My own 'Gas' Station" She said that the J-plug looked cool like a laser gun or something
She never smiles in the morning.
Then she asked if she could have my F-350 Diesel when she gets to drive ............... never............ well, by then, maybe
