"Jeepers, just pick up the darn phone and call them!!!"
Jump ahead to now. Yes, we have a family texting plan...and yes, it's unlimited. Thankfully!
In the car tonight, my phone: "Ding, ding, ding-da-ding, ding!"
Dave: "Why are you always ding, ding, dinging?"
Me: "Because I have a relationship with our children."
Dave: "That's hurtful...."
Yup, I'm waiting for my "Mom of the Year" award to come in the mail. Any day now.
