How wonderful for you and your daughter. I was so thrilled when I found out I was having a daughter (she's almost 27 now). I couldn't wait to teach her how to cook, bake cookies, all those things most moms want to do with their daughters. Well...she wanted absolutely nothing to do with it. We butted heads for the first 25 years of her life. Like my sister said, daughters don't get to be human until they're about 25..and it's so true. She's finally calling me asking me how to cook this or that (she's married now, so I guess she doesn't have a choice)
, but as far as her sitting down and asking me to teach her how to knit...it'll never happen. But, I've got a granddaughter, Daisy Grace, who I may be able to do things with that my daughter would never do. She's only 1-1/2 so it may be a while. That's fine...I'm planning on being around for a few more years.
I'm glad you and your daughter have patched things up. I can sympathize totally.
