Tea time …

Connor has just started to be able to make me tea in the morning.   He is also at that point where he is dead excited to be making it for me.

I realise there is a small window of opportunity here to abuse this situation.  I have decided to get as much cups of tea in the morning in bed, until this particular episode of boys-who-love-their-moms passes.

So yesterday I hear Connor in the passage, so I yell up the passage – in my best trailer park fashion: “Connor how does tea sound?”

Connor: “Like Ttttttttttteeeeeaaaaaaaaaa….” (he is sounding out the letter T in the event that my description did not do it justice)

You know when you sit there and realise that you will not be getting any tea, it was a bit like that.

  1. Cameron is at this EXACT same stage but he is unable to do it twice in a row – like twice in the same day or 2 days in a row!

    If I dare ask I get a “BUT I made for you YESTERDAY/this morning”

      Yes, my kids seem to struggle with time and remembering – unless it is something I have mentioned we might maybe do, then they remember exactly everything down to the second. Funny that.

    I’ve always said, what is the point of having kids if they can’t do little tasks for you. I think it is brilliant that Connor is now making tea and earning his keep. Does he realise how much tea you drink though?? Poor little guy…

      On the upside, at least I have not got him pouring me wine .. they may be too much like child labour. Drunk mom, child bringing more drinks … maybe not the best picture.
