Communication with my tween. Jul 7, ’07 11:10 PM
for Mel ‘s contacts

I logged into messenger tonight and NOTICED these words behind my son’s name: “I love Julia!” ps. my other son (cj’s best friend, austin) is staying overnight tonight. So, I did the only NATURAL thing a mother in the 21st century COULD do. I im’ed him.

me: ummmmm…. you LOVE julia?
me: why didn’t your mother know that?
me: hmmmmmmmm?
cj: you didnt know that!?!?!?!
cj: it is on my phone too!!!!
cj: austin says hi
me: seems like something a kid would tell his mother. if he actually LIKED his mother, that is.
cj: HI! (from austin)
cj:  (from austin too)
me: all riiiiiiiighty then.
me: so, like, you say, i love you?
me: and she says, i love you too?
me: like that?
cj: its more like she says i love you and i say i love you more.
melgmom: o
melgmom: m
melgmom: g
cj: i know!!
me: whoa.
me: i think i need another margarita.
cj: i want 1!!!!!!!!!
cj: so does austin!!!
me: don’t MAKE me come over there and kick you in the head.
me: you do NOT need a margarita. you don’t need to try them until you are 45. AT LEAST. or? maybe you should try them two weeks from never.
me: i need one though. FOR. SURE.
cj: dad needs one. bad.

cj: thanks! i am!
