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

i blame my parents…..well, and my hubby

and if you are wondering where some of this comes from:

me:  so dad brought home a new computer. we’ll just switch out your hard drive and everything will be faster.

mom:  OK so long as you don’t change anything.

dad:  [laughing] so you want her to change it so long as she doesn’t change anything?

mom:  yes, exactly.
