Last week, older boy became the proud owner of his first smart phone.
ME: Hey guy, it is nice outside and mom wants to take a walk in a few minutes. Make sure you are ready.
Sitting on his bed and playing a game on his phone, my son responds.
OLDER BOY: Sure. Is everyone going?
ME: Yes, the whole clan.
He goes back to concentrating on the app.
OLDER BOY: Can you text me when we are ready to go?
ME: From downstairs? Ha!
I then walk downstairs and tell mom about her son's new found use for technology. Sissy (little sister) overhears the conversation.
SISSY: Can I text him? Please? Please?
ME: Hmmm. Oh yes, I think that is an awesome idea.
With some help, here is the text she sent to older boy when it was walk time:
Time to go my BFF! :) LOL :D xox Sissy
Nothing like getting a digital smiley face with hugs and kisses from your elementary school little sister.
As such, our household is now modernized.
For better or for worse emoticon.
Have a good weekend everyone.
