I didn't want to put the Princess on blast but I have to:
Hey mom i have no service so im jus gonna send a text. but i jus wanted to check in wit you. I love you and I will try to call you later. bye 8/16/08 8:53 PM
I love my baby but she really thinks I'm an idiot. How're you sending a text with no service, sistah?
This message came to me on Saturday night. And it revolves around the fact my daughter is resistant to communicate when we are not in each other's presence. She spent the weekend up north with her daddy, she left on Friday and came back on Monday. Because she's not away from me that often I feel better when she calls me if she's away for a few days. She refuses. So to pacify me, she sent this idiotic text.
I responded with "Ok".
The logical side of me says: Loosen the leash! You can't even remember the last time you called your Mama!
The emotional side of me says: Whatever. I'm in my forties and haven't lived with my mama in almost 25 years. K wakes up in my house every daggone day! She could pick up a phone."
When she got home on Monday she gave me a hug and said she missed me. I could have ripped her a new one but chose not to.
