Tuesday Text: Parentexting

I am usually very good at managing my expectations.
Usually.
After Augie took his extended vacation at school after his exams,
I was more than thrilled to have him home.
For about an hour.
Now I pretty much spend my time parentexting.™
Isn't that a good word?
And my boy is such a chatter box.
Not.
And The Bird?
Pretty much the same.
They've been in Vermont since Saturday.
They'll be back for New Year's black eyed peas.
Then back to Vermont they go.
Sigh.
I think I'll go get a new hole punch so I can have something to do....
And isn't this last question what every mother wants to read?
As she is getting ready for bed?
Gah.

Trisha said...

I love your new word. So appropriate for this day and age. So - did you find out the story behind falling on her head with a helmet on?

I'm feelin' the same way. Son left this morning (in my car) for Colorado ski trip. Asked him to check in every 3 or 4 hours during the drive. He said I'm whining again. :)

Kids! You can borrow my fancy schmancy 3 hole punch any time you want!

Flea said...

Psh. If she was wearing her helmet she's fine. If she fell on her face, that would be a whole different story.

Daryl said...

Oh I am laughing so hard, I am sorry ... and I am loving Parentexting™

Can you ask her if she's seen my scissors?

Does she have my new mascara??

Umm, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but as the mother of four kids that moved away to go to college, I feel somewhat qualified.

They flew the nest! And, kids text all day long with their friends, but keep it simple with Mom.

I think I would rather have zero information than little snippets.

That's why we get more gray hair as they get older.
