Teen Texts

When your home is filled with teens, texting is bound to become your main means of communication. Our older girls indoctrinated us into this new reality and I must say, it is a successful method of communication. They can easily reply to us without alerting their friends and peers that they're talking to mommy and daddy. You remember how uncool that was, right? Yet, when push comes to shove they will relent and dial to make an old fashioned phone call.

This afternoon our high school daughter (#3) took teen texting to a whole new (lower?) level. After arriving home from school and a couple of errands, she went upstairs to her room to start homework. I was downstairs furiously cleaning in anticipation of the in-laws' arrival when my heard my phone vibrating. I answered...

#3: Mumma??
Me: Where are you??
#3: (shy giggle) Upstairs...
Me: Really?! You're calling me on your phone??
#3: Can you please bring up some toilet paper?

Apparently, I missed her text...


  1. My kids are still at the stage were they don't have cell phones. My kids just yell that they need toilet paper and my 3 year old runs and gets a roll. It is good to know that texting can help you out of a tight spot like this as long as you get it.

    1. Just wait for all the excitement that's yet to come! :)

  2. All I can think right now is how nice it must be to be able to use the bathroom ALONE. I've got 3 kids under 4 and yeah...

    1. Hahahaha!!! I remember those days!! It's one of those mommy luxuries we tend to forget about!


I'll take your comments over a box of chocolates any day! That's BIG for me, people. HUGE. **Thank You**
