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!!

LOL - been there with the boys, but not with my daughter. Girls are different, I hear ;-)ReplyDelete
I am not liking it!Delete
Oh Boy...tense times ahead. Hang in there Mom.ReplyDelete
I want to put her under a rock for the next 5 yearsDelete
You've unleashed the texting monster now!ReplyDelete
I agree with the monster partDelete
I loved this post haha, you guys made the right decision giving her a phone even though it might start an issue.ReplyDelete
I guess it could always be worseDelete
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.ReplyDelete
they'll start at age 6!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
agree! I've had people text my house lineDelete
I am so thankful that cell phones were too expensive when our kids were that age. Good luck.ReplyDelete
thanks, I think I'm going to need luckDelete
I feel your pain!ReplyDelete
right in the arse!Delete
Shoot, I was nervous reading through this. Now that I realize you were talking about buying her a cellphone, I'm more nervous.ReplyDelete
Hope you make it through the weekend okay (for starters).
I can't wait for the first bill to comeDelete
Oh, boy. I'm dreading this with my kids. :)ReplyDelete
I'm dreading the next step more (gulp - boys)Delete
oh the fun begins!ReplyDelete
I want to make it stop thoughDelete
Oh yeah, my mother's favorite line ... "How's it feel to want honey?"ReplyDelete
I might have to use that line :)Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Hang in there...at least she's not gone off toReplyDelete
college yet!! ha ha
It does get a little easier...as her phases come up, you'll miraculously be ready to go through that phase with her---thankfully!!
I've already told her, I'm going to go back to college again and be her roommate :)Delete
Pandora's box is now open!ReplyDelete
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.
that is the bright sideDelete
Could be worse. She could have her drivers license.ReplyDelete
if only I could pop her into some sort of time capsuleDelete
I am soooo worried about raising our three boys in this crazy age, but whatyagonnado :)
Maybe we'll be able to teleport later?
I'm all for implanting tracking devices LOLDelete
I know this day is coming for us, too. I passed along the Kreativ Blogger Award to you, then realized you've already received it from Katie :-)ReplyDelete
time can run pretty fast!Delete
