Like mother, like daughter?

Anne-with-an-e has been writing a lot lately. She's been spotted regularly, hunched over the keyboard, tapping out a new story. A couple of us around here have observed that, lately, she looks a lot like me.

Today, Betsy saw her pour a cup of coffee, and walk away with it.

"Ummm .... Anne?" Betsy said, a worried look on her face, a meaningful glance at the coffee cup.

"Don't worry," Anne told Betsy. "It's for Mom. I'm just delivering it."

LOL ... was half your cup gone by the time you received it?

I know that my older girls like the occasional sip of coffee. Even the 3 year old asked for some coffee at our local Barnes and Noble the other day. Sometimes she gets a shared treat of a vanilla bean frap (not real coffee, but she calls it that).

I just assume that all my children will drink coffee by the time I'm done with them.

PS. You tell that Anne girl to keep right on writing.

None of mine will actually drink the stuff yet, but as they all write, I know it's only a matter of time. ;-)

My oldest daughter has been known to steal sips of my coffee when I'm not looking. HEY!

Oh goodness! That's too funny! (Good for Anne to be busy writing!)
