As I was making edits on some of the vacation photos in Picasa this evening, I was struck by this picture. Sometime during every trip, Nimue gets an unexpected espresso drink. This year, it was at a restaurant on the harbor next to the Sydney Opera house. Picture this: long table with 10 people seated for lunch, kids not necessarily seated near parents. Older cousin orders a mocha without negative parental intervention. Ma thinks "Crumbs! Now I can't say 'No' to my own kid when she orders the same," so Nim got one too. Later on when the drinks arrived, cousin was asked by parent "Who said you could have a coffee?...." 'Doh! Score one for the kids.
