Should have seen this coming....



The past couple of months kiddo kept bringing up the same topic, and for the past few months that same topic has fallen on deaf ears.

This time last week, all that changed. She was heading off on her first overnight school trip. It was time.

Husband dropped into the store on his lunch break and made the purchase. We sat side by side anxiously awaiting her return from school. Together we walked her through all the ins and outs.

Sunday morning we said goodbye to our beautiful little girl.


A few hours later, my cell phone rings. "Mom, if you have any more questions, ask them now. I'm trying to have fun with my friends but you keep texting me."

That is what happens when you give your 12 year old a cell phone!




She only texts you when she wants something!!

  5. Oh my gosh! Scary! I don't know what I'm gonna do when my kids get old enough and ask for a cell. But since that age is getting younger and younger, I better prepare for my 5 year old asking soon.

  6. LOL! I have friends whose kids only know how to text. They won't call. My husband says no one uses a phone to make calls anymore.

  8. Shoot, I was nervous reading through this. Now that I realize you were talking about buying her a cellphone, I'm more nervous.

    Hope you make it through the weekend okay (for starters).

  10. Oh yeah, my mother's favorite line ... "How's it feel to want honey?"

  11. LOL. They do outgrow that. They'll start to text you to share stuff though it's still better when they call to do it.

  13. Pandora's box is now open!
    Despite all of the negatives, it is a good thing to be able to get in tough with her (and her, you) whenever you need to.
