The 13 yr old gets up, immediately shuffles to the coffee pot and groggily pours a cup like an old woman 馃懙

I don't know if I should be proud or recognize how I've failed as a mother.
I'm 31 and still don't quite understand coffee. 馃槅 I guess some people just have natural craving for it and other never crave it at all.

@CrazyMusicLover I mean it wakes me up (after the 2nd or 3rd) but I definitely don't experience it as a remotely addictive thing
@Elessar I only like it for dipping sweets into it for the flavour. 馃槅
Elessar26-30, M
@CrazyMusicLover As a base for the gelato 馃ゴ but it's the gelato that is addictive in that case, not the coffee

I was drinking coffee at that age and that really sounds like me back then. 馃槀 Take it as a sign of her growing up, lol.

Typically if I'm posting about her I try to keep from identifying gender because I don't like the SW-creepers to be alerted to the fact I even have a daughter.
Ducky31-35, F
@Starcrossed I don鈥檛 blame you. I was hesitant with identifying the gender of this man I鈥檝e fallen for recently because the creeps will know I do, in fact, like men too and take it as this:

Two already have already. 馃槅

I started drinking coffee in my teens as well. Because I really needed the waker upper. Now, I've almost stopped drinking coffee. Full circle I guess.
鈥淚mitation is the sincerest form of flattery鈥, as the saying goes. Haha!

Just trying to be like mom
Starcrossed41-45, F
@MarineBob Lol mini-me for sure. Once in a blue moon she'll even brew it for us.
That is funny but how bad did she party

Before answering yourself. Ask if your mother believes she failed or succeeded and review your thoughts..馃樂

Should 13 year olds be drinking coffee?
Workerbee31-35, M
Coffee is one thing I doubt I will ever like
Was she doing it comedically, or seriously?
Starcrossed41-45, F
@NativePortlander1970 seriously. She doesn't do it every day. Maybe once or twice a week.
@Starcrossed There might be something going on, You might need to sit her down and ask if anything is going on.

@CountScrofula ooh I hope this means I raising up a foodie like you
CountScrofula41-45, M
@Starcrossed I was a very late bloomer on food. Hated cooking growing up, only like, a vague interest in food beyond eating as much of it as possible being a teenager. When I moved out from home I realised I actually sincerely loved my parents' cooking and hated eating garbage all the time. So I SLOWLY taught myself to cook. I genuinely wasn't a good cook until my late 20s. So hope she starts earlier than I did lmao
Starcrossed41-45, F
@CountScrofula much, we've had her help cook dinner for several years now. She basically does anywhere from 1/2 to most of our blue apron meals herself now. Her chopping and prep skills are getting much better as she's more confident with a knife so that makes me worry less that she'll chop a finger off.
