I know exactly how you feel. My 18 yr old is always loosing patience with me because I forget what she tells me. Last night she came out with a new outfit to ask me if it is OK to wear out to dinner with her friends on Friday night, and then only ten minutes later I had to ask her what she is doing on Friday night. AND I did this a number of times.
Later on last night I started to tell my daughter some teacher jokes I was telling my students yesterday. She told me I had already told her the jokes the day before. I know my memory isn't that bad, because I would have remembered her telling me that my jokes were so pathetic, which she always says they are. So I started to tell her the jokes, and she knew all the punch lines.
I am not sure if she is playing with my mind, and already knew the jokes, and pretended that I had told them to her. OR if I really did tell her the jokes and forgot I told her. Anyway, she won that fight, either she tricked me and she won, or I did tell her the jokes and she won. Either way, my daughter won that fight, I think I might have to really concentrate a lot more on our conversations with her. Or I will have a hidden camera and find out what our conversations were about so I there can't be any possibilities of being tricked again. mmmm something to think about.
