They Grow Up So Fast

A few weeks ago, Momina Nomina told me she was learning how to text. I didn't really think much of it as she also threatened...I mean...tried to learn Facebook but never followed up.

A week after that conversation I get a text from Mom - "At bar. Learning how to text."

I called her the next day and she asked what else she needed to know.

Let's see. She can text - and she can text drunk - I think we can skip the chapter on texting ex's or sending messages to the wrong people so she pretty much has it mastered.

My mom has been texting since 2004. I forget that it's weird. She remains scared of "the facebooks" though.

The next step is "sexting" dude.

Be afraid.

Be very afraid.

Wait... there is a chapter on texting exes? What does it say? Do it on a regular basis? That is what I thought you were supposed to do.

my mom has facebook and now very familiar with blackberrying people. Yikes.

I love she was learning this at a bar. There are many things I have also learned how to do at a bar.

Angela said...

But does she do it letter by letter? Or does she know T9 yet?

Which bar was it? Can I send my mom to meet her and they can learn together? Will save me a lot of headache emails and phone calls.

If my mom started texting I'd be a little worried. But I'm definitely trying to get the pops on board.

My fiancee's moms calls it "tex-mex".

I'm thankful for the fact that my mom doesn't know how to text, nor figure out how to access her voice mails. Or use a computer.

I'm very lucky.

Thankfully the only thing my mom can do is text. She'd never be able to figure out facebook let along googling to find my blog.

But your mom sounds like she's determined to get into all sorts of social networking. Good luck!

She claimed the phone did it automatically and i told her to stop texting me until she figured it out.

That is hilarious! And at a bar nonetheless! My mom doesn't text much but my dad is pretty good at it. Thankfully neither of them text me often.

My 82 year old grandmom is on FB and updates her status daily. Weird.

Awww that is so effin cute!!

My mom tries to text but ends up dialing me then all I hear is buttons being pushed...then she calls me back and asks if I got her text!

Maxie said...

My mom signed up for facebook but doesn't know how to use it.

I feel safe...for now.

So THAT'S who that text was from I got at 2 a.m.

Good to know.

Once she drops a LOL in there its time to not have a cellphone.

Last week, my mother asked me if I Twitter.

I gaped. Then I blinked. Slowly.

When I said "no" she asked what the heck it was.

I felt better.

What is it with mom's knowing how to text? I received a text just today from my mother that said: "Prince is on Ellen today. Jealous?"

Rat bastards!

Dolce said...

It's all down hill from here, my friend.

Do you think your mom will drunk text you?

That would be funny.

Meg Kathleen said...

My mom texts me all the time and she always signs it love, Mom like I don't know who it's from. Always cracks me up.

c.watson said...

Ha my mom still can't text and that is for the best. I can't imagine getting passive aggressive texts like "well i guess you're still alive talking to people you love more than me..." at 3am.

TishTash said...

My mom texts me. It's nice. Maybe next she'll learn how to hug me. Baby steps, Mama.

Karen said...

My mom texts more than I do and googles the shit out of everything, so there is no sacred ground.

When she starts showing you the new apps on her Iphone, it's the beginning of the end...

LiLu said...

My mother texts, Facebooks, AND gchats me.

The interwebs are no longer a safe place...

Matt said...

What is sexting anyway?

I dont get it.

badmuthafudruckers said...

My mom doesn't *want* to know anything about texting and refuses to open any texts she gets. Or to delete them.

harper & beatrix said...

my dad is the business type who's had a blackberry for a decade.

yet he still starts his texts, "this is dad."

my mom is trying to learn to put pictures up on facebook.

what can you do?

Mom texting wigs me out. She sends very random messages. No facebook though, I dodged that bullet.
