My two teens were on their way to my room today to discuss something.
The 14 y.o. knew that in the course of that discussion, he was going to get ‘caught’ today in an infraction going several weeks back (a school subject he has consistently left undone), but he couldn’t stop laughing (mostly nerves).
My 17 year old’s FB status about the conversation she had with her brother.
She: Bro! You need to get serious!
He: I am serious! I am seriously afraid for my life!
My 14 y.o. does not have FB. So this was my reply on her wall:
He needed to be afraid. He thinks he got off, but he has no idea what’s in store for him next week.
Let’s let it be our little secret. Just something we keep between the three of us- you, me, and the FB collective of our nearest and dearest friends, relations, and utter strangers.
And now The Common Room readers, too, of course.
I foresee a spotless house and lots of bonding time with Mom.=)
