The family that texts together, stays together?

If you couldn't tell from this blog, I love my Mom. (Hi, Mom!) I try to keep in touch with her - we do in-person visits, Facetime, regular phone calls and texts. I even sometimes play text games with her near her birthday or mother's day, where I will text pictures of my cat for a week until she tells me to stop it and send a picture of her grandson. (It's a fun game; you should try it with your parent of choice.)

I love that my Mom does so well with technology. In fact, she probably texts more than I do. That's a good thing as researchers at the University of Nebraska have released a study ind.... Additionally, 60 percent of the participants said they rarely lie in a text. Now, since the sample size in that study was only 150 people and I couldn't find the age breakdown, take the results at face value.

But, the idea is intriguing to me. My son is little now, but as he grows older, will I need to embrace the text message as a way of keeping in touch with him? (I am sure he'll be trading texts with my Mom long before me.) Or will there be some new way for him to keep in touch with me by the time he reaches an age I feel comfortable giving him a cell phone?

I am curious: Do mothers of older children text their teens as a way to connect with them when they are unable to have face-to-face chats? I suppose it is inevitable amongst family members, after all, I have no problem texting my husband throughout the day to let him know I am thinking of him.

If there are any moms who text their children to connect with them more, let me know in the comments. I'm interested in hearing how you got started.

If you'll excuse me, I have to send my Mom a picture of my cat.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
