Safe Text

FunnyMan (who claims he was the last of his kind) finally got a cell phone for his 15th birthday this month. He has unlimited text, which of course is a must-have for any normal, cool, and overly social teenager. Even though he loves, LOVES, LOVES texting his friends, he has also discovered the beauty of texting ME - his dear old mother - when he is downstairs and I am upstairs.

It's such a "time saver" and yelling from one end of the house to the other no longer becomes a means of communication. So, texting, you see actually provides for a much more "civil" environment, hahaha!

Anyway, so here I am, sitting in my bed with my laptop (ahh... love how technology aids to my lazy moments) and I get the following text from FunnyMan:

FM: PrettyPrettyPrincess wants to know what SPERM is...

I, of course laughed. And knowing just how prudish my 9 year old daughter can be (she doesn't even like to HEAR the word "kiss"), I sent the following response:

ME: Tell her it's the man's portion that makes a baby and she probably won't ask anymore.

Not less than two seconds later, I receive his report.

FM: LOL! You Called It!

Great... now if ALL of my birds and bees discussions could be taught via Text... hmmm.... Perhaps I could write a sex-ed seminar and teach it via Text...

Of course I'd encourage all class members to only practice safe text...[snickering]...tee hee...

Be careful, there is probably such a thing as safe texting with sexting nowdays.

I don't have texting at all on my phone; I'm old school. lol or cheap - whatever.


And thank you for your comments. Did Moose not have a chin before? lol He actually has my chin!! We could see it in his ultrasound pictures. So fun. I think this baby has my chin, too, but his/her ultrasound pictures were blurry.

When my oldest was in 4th grade, he asked during a movie moment, are they doing that different kind of kissing, you know, CHINESE? That was definitely a learning moment.
