Tuesday Text: Parentexting™


The Bird had a little frustration during her return to school yesterday.
I found it a little incredibly entertaining.
I don't know where all this impatience comes from.
But it sure was funny....

It's those little life lessons that build character. Isn't it, Mama??

Hope she made it safely back:)

Hope she's back safely at school by now. Welcome to the world, Bird! This is life.

mom x 2 said...

Hope she is back safely. And I agree with BHE.

Delora said...

Someone takes after her lovely mother! XX

Lisa said...

I think that is just crazy. Shen needs to put something in her purse to entertain herself in times like that. Poor girl!

Hilary said...

Introduce that girl to a book! ;)

Keetha said...

I hope she's back safely and with the others, agree with BHE about the character-building.

I remind my son that waaaaay back when, when we went on car rides we had to (gasp) stare out the window, use our imagination, maybe color in coloring books. No Nintendo or DVD player. Telling him how good he has it doesn't seem to make an impression. :-)

Flea said...

Too hilarious. :) I take it she arrived safely?

Deb said...

snicker! I think this is another whole slice of modern humanity!

She must be exhausted today after that trip. Hope she had a very chatty seat-mate to keep her company.

"hopes that not knowing the time will make things go faster." I, too, am quite familiar with that form of logic. Like...it's the weekend, will it last longer if I cram it full of activities, or if I stay home and relax. Never was able to get to the bottom of that one. But I digress.

Poor Bird. Air travel will test your limits more often than not. It will get much easier once she can say, "white wine, please." :)

Poor little bird has her Mama's patience....

Daryl said...

GAH!

Ga Bless ... ;-)

Nurse Nancy said...

I am with the Bird. Ask Ellen....I would have been far worse and most likely have offered to fly the plane myself!

noble pig said...

Well, that waiting is the worst ever!!!!

TSannie said...

It was funny as it was unfolding and still funny now! Thank you Birdy!

Drama Queen said...

I love Tuesday Text! That was funny - unfortunately, though, I feel her pain - I've been there. Ugh!

I just LOVE your Parentexting (TM) Tusday posts....they are the best. Sorry Bird...that was brutal.

Tammy said...

Hahaha! She sounds just like my daughter. I love it. I hope she got back safely!

Meg said...

I like that you text with them. My tests with my oldest son are mostly of the "COME HOME NOW" or "DO YOU NEED A RIDE" or "WHERE ARE YOU" variety. and I would text with middle son, too, if he would ever to remember to charge his phone and/or keep it turned on.

Meg said...

PS - tell her to print and carry a sudoku or crossword.

Grandma J said...

Oh how funny. I love your little texting posts. or are they testing posts?

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Diane said...

Learning patience is so hard! Thanks for sharing that with us!

Nancy said...

Hope she is eventually was able to take off. Nothing worse than waiting - especially when you are college-age.
