WORDLESS & WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

Do you remember how my oldest son got an Ipod Touch for an early birthday present?

Well, having such items require responsibility on his part. We don't ask for much, really. Just the basics, such as getting up when you're told, and not when you want to because you were up too late playing with your new toy, cleaning your room, doing school work, etc. Simple right? I think he's got it pretty good, if you ask me!

Unfortunately, by him not being obedient in those areas, he got his Ipod and cell phone taken away for a couple of days until he proved he was "mature" enough to have them back. Last Saturday, he was so bored, he started playing around with MY phone. I thought he was playing games on it, but then I noticed he sent a text to my husband.

This is what it said...

That is too funny! It's hard when you have such a smart and talented child because you have forget that they really are still just children. Then they do something like that to remind you:-)

Kids are so tech saavy these days. I don't even know how to text. I'm going to need some help. Hopefully I have a couple more years.

but it's so hard being mature! ;)

I'm getting old, but I'm not quite too old to remember all too well how it feels to be a kid! Here's to hoping he can live up to his promise. :o)

momstheword said...

Very cute, lol! Oh yes, we had to put a few restrictions on them so that they could learn some balance and responsibility!

BTW, yes he thought of the idea on his own. He just wanted to have her feel like she was connectig with him since he doesn't see her as much as he used to.
