I really never thought that I would like texting.
I thought that it would be a negative for my kids.
I worried that it would isolate our kids from us...
fingers to buttons and nose to screens?
Texting is wonderful for our family!
It draws us closer when we have to be apart.
I use to refuse to text because it was a hassle with my old phone.
Now I have my QWERTY keyboard with buttons.
Firehubby and I text and touch base at times during the day when he's at work...
We send love notes:
"Miss us so much babe, luv u"
"Do you want to take her 2 swim tomorrow or shall I?"
"Is (insert video game name) appropriate for him?"
"He wore his new Vans to camp!!! #$@%"
We also text to keep in touch with the kids...
"David's dad driving me, will be @ house soon"
"Can I walk the dog with Hannah?"
"I forgot my gym shoes...will you bring them?"
"Luv you mom"
"I need to stay over for band today"
We do keep the kids texting under control with a little white lie...
We have unlimited texting for the entire family, because it is the best deal.
But, we tell our girl that she is only allowed 15 texts a day (sending and receiving)
And we tell our boy that he has 30 a day
We'll keep it up as long as we can! LOL!
