can you hear me now?

8yo [who is supposed to be reading before bed] just came out and told me that she has figured out how to instant message.

8yo: i just pass my invisible cell phone into my ear, and instant messaging comes out of my mouth.

this weirdness brought to you by the fact that my kids NEVER WANT TO GO TO SLEEP.

sh*t happens

8yo [talking to someone]: don’t worry, I’ll have a cell phone by middle school.

me: you might have one, but mama will lock it down  do you can only call us or emergency.

8yo: [rolls eyes at me]

me: yeah,I know. parents take all the fun out of everything.

8yo: yeah, it happens that way sometimes.

me and person she is talking to crack up
