My daughter sent her first texts!
So Saturday I got to spend the day shopping with some close girlfriends. We had a great time catching up with each other and there were some really good deals. But I wondered through the day why Ben was not responding to my texts. Especially when I asked if he would like me to bring home his favorite dessert. Nothing. So when I got home that night and found the house thrashed and Ben in bed I was a little peeved. Until I found out that about 3 PM that day he started being violently sick! He said for near 4 hours he hugged the toilet and even now, 4 days later, his stomach muscles are very sore. Apparently the kids took care of themselves. We are both very proud that they got along all day while feeding themselves and getting themselves to bed. The next day, Sunday morning, I mentioned all my texts to Ben. Alicia said she had read them. Ben then checked all the messages and saw that she had tried to respond to my texts with messages like dad is sick. dad is barfing. But these were not sent to me, but to one of our friends. He wrote back saying he needed the Wilson decoder, as Alicia did not spell all the words correctly. He had no idea what was going on. Alicia said Ben's cell phone was hard to write on, I AGREE--hate his phone. We all had a great laugh. She sent her first texts out to her best friends father. So hilarious.
