Boys, Bras, and Texting

…or, How To Get Your Kids To Stop Opening Your Packages.

But the former title made you click, didn’t it?

I feel obliged to share a text conversation that took place between my 11 year old son and myself. You see, whenever I get a package in the mail, my kids all run to ask if they can open it.

Today Julien stayed home while I went to the grocery store, so when this package arrived, his curiosity got the better of him, so he texted me.

Julien: You got a package in the mail, can I open it? From FedEx ground.

Me: Ok.

Julien: Was that a yes or a no?

(What a smartypants. Sounds like his Mother.)

Mom: Yes

Julien: Thanks


Me: What is it?

Julien: Julien: It’s a bra

Me:  Hahahahaha

I’m pretty sure this is a “YIKES” face in all cultures.

That’ll learn ‘em.
