Tuesday Text: Parentexting™

The Bird has a dinner party:
And then? Just another round of our typical chatter. We go from her political leanings, which she shared with me while the backside of Irene was howling through my ears, to what we're going to wear to a wedding in a few weeks. Now she wants Dora to have a Twitter account. Dora--who can barely get on her Facebook page....

And the Boy Child? Hurricane discussion turns to Dora with him as well. Don't you like how autocorrect turns surge into suede? I know lots of homeowners along the shore who wish that were actually true.
Seriously. All he cares about is Dora. I'm live texting a hurricane, and all I get is Dora/Doobie?
Dora. Dora Dora.
I get no respect.

Um, maybe she needs to transfer to a Northern liberal college...!

And I want to see a beach covered in suede.

Auto-correct also changed Mama to Dora. Now come on out from under the bed and take a walk on the suede beach.

If the Bird becomes a full-blown R., I'll come visit you as I'm sure you'll have to permanently take to your bed.
That Dora! She's gonna get a big head if this love-fest toward her continues!

Those kids need to learn to respect their Momma! Mom first and THEN Dora!

OMG- a republican! Where did you go wrong? You'll need a support group.
