I wonder when they will grow up....

My daughter is home from college.  While she has picked up a part time job, she's bored.  So bored, she decorated the Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving.

We were wondering when we set the tree up (an artificial one--a long story behind that as we always cut our own until 2007) if Lemmie at age 3 would have grown out of his habit of climbing up through the middle of the Christmas tree.

The answer is a resounding no.  Sometimes you're surprised as you walk by the tree and discover a grey head sticking out among the ornaments.  He's also managed to bend some of the branches as he weighs 12 pounds.

I'm also wondering if they have a special class in college which teaches freshmen to act as if their parents have no brains....and all of a sudden, she has become hyper critical of my housekeeping.  Although I dusted yesterday, she decided it wasn't good enough and plans to dust again tomorrow.  Sigh.  If only it weren't accompanied by attitude.  I think she's too old for coal and sticks in her stocking.

I think any child who wants to dust deserves her own duster and lots and lots of gratitude! I never had to deal with that child-rearing problem.

Good one, Kathy! I just wish that it would extend to the dishes she leaves me in the sink!
