    Not that I'm complaining or anything. :tongue:

    She looks like my daughter. She dresses like my daughter. Her voice sounds the same. But...*GASP*...that tone isn't there. The arguing isn't there. She actually - sit down for this - she actually laughs while doing school work. :faint:

    OMG. I think my daughter *might* actually be - dare I say it? - enjoying herself!

    I mean, this has been going on for 2 WHOLE DAYS!

    This is why I love being a mom. :D I thought my heart would burst from seeing actual, real joy on her face.

    I, too, am happy for your daughter and you. What a nice development/fresh start in the new year. Hope all continues to go well.

    Tell her, in a positive way, how much you are enjoying her company at the moment. Don't mention past problems or anything, just say, "I've really enjoyed talking to you," or "I'm so happy that you seem to be relaxed about doing this."

    Reward the good stuff. The best reward is your approval and positive time with you.
