An update on yesterday's teen taming post, today saw the best example yet of how to make a teenage child very, very happy. It goes like this….
7.30 am and Middleagemum.com picks her way carefully through the piles of abandoned clothes, crockery and muddy ruby boots covering teenageboy's bedroom floor to draw the curtains for the usual Monday morning wake up routine. But it's different today.
"Good morning, there is seven inches of snow on the ground, it's still snowing heavily and school has just rung to say it is closed for the day". Instant, joyous, teenage happiness.
