Every freaking school morning:

Me: "Time to get your shoes on"

My daughter: <groaning> "Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!"

 

Me: <ten minutes later> "Time to go"

My daughter (usually still putting her shoes on) <groaning> "Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!"

 

This last part may be repeated anywhere from 1 to 20 times, during which I'm resisting the urge to just yell "Get your broccoli'ing shoes and let's go gosh broccoli!" 

 

I have 6.5 more years of this?

BD was really good about shoes.

Shoes meant going OUT!

Clothing, that was what she thought was optional. A determined young lady heading for the door. :rolleyes:

Never understood why we needed to switch to metric, after spending years of my youth learning pounds and ounces, feet and yards right when things started to make sense to my 8 yr old brain suddenly everything had to be decimal.  Bah! And decades later we're still not using it anywhere.

 

Because ordering a liter of beverage is more satisfying than ordering a pint. 😁

 

You do use it a lot more in science fields, or as someone noted, with machines/parts becoming more metric. I'm pretty comfortable going back and forth between pounds/kilos, and inches/cm. Temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit are more challenging to accurately get a hang of. If I don't need an exact number, I just fall back to what a meteorologist once said on TV decades ago: double the Celsius number and add 30. Gives a fair approximation.

Broccoli!  You mean until she's 21?  That's 9.5 years!

Eff that, I'm kicking her out at 18!

She would probably really hate it if you put her shoes on for her?

You have no idea...

Given that she's 11.5, and what @Glitterwolf said, that's close to 10 years.  NOOOOooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This really only started once her brother moved out last year. Before that, she usually had her shoes on before her brother did and we were waiting on him. 

Now that she's an "only child" though...

oh, and given the stories you and @TheAuldGrump have told here over the years, it does not surprise me in the least that BD was willing to go out sans clothing. ::D:

Our Vixens are 22 and 24 now.

One of them ( youngest) is now studying in Norway for 6 months, but semi-quoting the words of the legendary Terminator...She'll be back!

Oldest is also still here.

 

Oh..and not putting on their shoes in time is usually the least of our "problems"
