i really thought i had at least 5 more years until i had to tell baylee

no more texting.

really he is only 7. he asked about texting the other day. so i let him have my phone and told him to text a message to lee's phone. within a few minutes and several texts later we got to our destination and i took the phone from him.

the next day we were going to amarillo. we decided to eat lunch with lee. i gave baylee the phone so he could text lee to find out where he wanted to eat. then i told baylee to give me my phone so i could get it to aunt rachael's number so he could text her and let her know we would be late. "i already got it, thanks." seriously he figured out how to change people and went wild. in the last 2 days he has probably sent 20 texts. i see unlimited texting in our future. or maybe the newness will wear off and we won't have to worry about it. i also see that i will be communicating with my son through texts. for those of you already there, do you draw the line at yelling at them through texts? lol. the whole thing is so unreal for my to believe it is already starting.

Sign up for unlimited texting now. Save yourself the $750 cell phone bill surprise. That's not a fun surprise to receive.
Yell texting IS DONE IN ALL CAPS! This helps get the point across! Cody would have preferred the yell texting versus the actually yelling that he received once we discovered the $750 cell phone bill!
Also, we just discovered a way to lock Cody's phone while he is in school. Even though cell phones are not allowed during school hours, we noticed there were a number of texts sent and received during the school day. (Wonder if that has any correlation to the sudden decline in Cody's GPA??) Anyway, we found a wonderful program available that will allow us to control when and to/from he texts. Brilliant! His next phone will have GPS! :)
