Things My Kids Have Taught Me About IM...

I was on the computer early one morning before the kids got up. After a while I saw Danielle log onto IM so I knew she was awake. Her bedroom is on the first floor, mine is on the second.
Me, Good Morning!

Danielle, Hi.

Me, Are you hungry?

Danielle, Yes!

Me, I am too. Why don't you make me breakfast in bed?

Danielle, NO!

Me, NO? Don't you love me anymore?

Danielle, I'm checking my email. (Guess we know where HER affections lie!)

Me, OK, how about we meet in the kitchen and I'll make breakfast?

Danielle, No, I am checking my email.

Me, How about I come take your computer for the day?

Danielle, All right. I'll be right there.
Ya know...I don't think they have this covered in any parenting books I know of...Welcome to the 21st century!

  1. What about the texting? Does that drive you nuts with the kids sometimes? My kids won't answer their cell phones when we call but 2 seconds later we'll text and they'll respond. I think they have us blocked but won't admit it because their friends call and they answer. We get no rings, just goes straight to voice mail. Hmmmm ...


  2. May - Yup, the whole texting thing is, in my opinion, in the same category as IMing.
