you find her mobile phone and she immediately blushes and says
"you didnt read my messages did you?"


Ecmo Thu 20-Sep-07 14:46:26

just as you are walking out the door she says

"mum arent you going to change those trousers?"

When he gives you a disgusted look, when you ask him how to use punctuation in a text....followed by rolling eyes and sighing

MaureenMLove Fri 21-Sep-07 14:09:35

When you buy a noew mobile phone and she's the only one who knows how to bluetooth.

MaureenMLove Fri 21-Sep-07 14:11:37

Oh and you start mixing up her brs with your own when you're putting the washing away. sad

When she's approaching the car where you're waiting to pick her up and the only indication that she's seen you is the merest twitch of the lips and miniscule movement of the hand...

when they won't be seen dead with you

DD1 was sent a BRILLIANT card by my aunty:


Sick and tired of being bossed around by your stupid parents?


Move out, get a job and start paying your own bills while you still know everything.

brimfull Fri 21-Sep-07 14:23:41

yes have seen that card-really true

wordgirl Fri 21-Sep-07 14:24:59

They'd rather get soaked walking home from school then be seen in something as uncool as a coat

kiskidee Fri 21-Sep-07 14:25:57

you get a phone call from school saying that they have to talk to you in person about the pictures on his/her mobile phone

SmartArse Fri 21-Sep-07 14:26:04

Oh God, yes ... DD1 was drenched when she got back from school yesterday. Her jumper dried out nicely lying in a heap at the bottom of the stairs, of course.

hennipenni Fri 21-Sep-07 14:28:00

Mo, haven't had the bra mix up yet but have mixed up our knickers before now!. So many of these ring oh so true!

hennipenni Fri 21-Sep-07 14:29:42

Can second the getting wet! why do they think that the clothes drying fairy and the lunch box removing from school bag fairy will do everything that they can't? grin

SmartArse Fri 21-Sep-07 14:33:43

Because said fairies DO do it all for them! Needless to say I picked the jumper up off the floor, dusted it down, smoothed it out and hung it over the radiator to dry.

Actually, it wasn't her school jumper, it was a random hoody thing. The school jumper has gone missing, although apparently "it's in my locker, Mummy, I'll bring it home tomorrow, I promise". I've heard that every day since the beginning of term.

ROFL - this is hysterical.

when, even though you know there are 6 hairbrushes in the house, yours is always missing

when there's the acrid stench of burning hair, before school, after school and before bed hmm or is that just my beloved??

Pimmpom Fri 21-Sep-07 16:16:41

Don't get mixed up with the bras anymore - dd has overtaken me sad
