Made me smile

The Princess has asked (via text) to drop the boys off early AGAIN this week. I have no reason to say no, and am missing them desperately, so I said okay.

She texted back a little smiley face.

The first thought that entered my head was, "Fuck you and your smiley face!"

I would never do this of course (I believe that would be what y'all might call "Petting the Drama Llama"), but the thought of texting that back to her made me smile.

Of course, there would be the shock, the tears, the "frank discussions", etc. It totally wouldn't be worth it, but god damn, it would be briefly fun!

Instead, I'm texting nothing, and looking forward to hanging with my boys a few hours earlier. The day will come when I'm so indifferent that any thoughts about her will be unable to draw emotion: I think that's still a ways off!

Yay!! Mirth is one step closer to indifference.

Don't rush yourself - enjoy this phase. The sad clown is thankfully finally being invisible but it does mean I have less new material to share with all of my friends and here.

She's such a child. I bet she dots every i she writes with a little heart above it too. Oh, and she most likely uses a pen with purple ink. It must be nice to live in fairy princess land with little more on your brain than which color lip gloss goes best with your shoes.

This made ME smile too. Yay for Crickets. Yay for parents who just want to be with their kids. Yay for avoiding the little traps that keep you invested in THEM!

Just a thought, but do you have have to text back and forth? You wouldn't believe how much better it is to communicate only via email. I know it seems impractical, but I've found that since email is more formal than text, I don't get the casual back and forth like I used to get and that would irk me to the core.

I was going to but I'm going to :) instead.

NewMom, her emails tend to include all kinds of digs and innuendoes. Even though there is a little back and forth, I think the character limit of the text is a little less annoying for me.

Williesmom, smileys are okay from you.
