Tuesday Text: Parentexting™

I'd forgotten about these conversations I had with my kids before they visited last weekend.
You know the kind: when you ask them what they want to eat so you can stock up?
I actually looked for those Oreos.
Then we found out that my "baby boy" had actually never flown by himself.
That was a shocker.
But in his defense, he is a twin, and his school is easy driving and training distance from home.

 But this part?
Not because he was folded into a tiny seat,
but because he was absolutely right about me.
I don't, um, like to be aware of other people on the plane, or to be near them.

But don't you like my awesome, reassuring parenting skills?

This made me smile...

I am laughing .. do you sit in the 'bathroom' so you can be alone or do you don your cloak of avoidance to keep you from 'them'?

I don't like to be aware of my fellow travelers either. I really, really, really wish I wasn't aware of my next-seat neighbor on the red eye from Vegas. He had apparently had a very different night than I did. If I had one of the melting paper mint things, I would have totally thrown a couple in his mouth.

I was in the row behind Alison Krauss on a flight from LA and I can honestly say that she is the wiggliest person on the planet. Someone needed to strap her down. Shaking the entire row of seats!!

I want a cloak of avoidance! Can I borrow yours?

Your texts crack me up.

I imagine him resting his head on his knees and staring aimlessly out the window. This was so cute!!

I never would have guessed!
