Me not Jack.
I haven’t blogged in awhile because life has been getting in the way AND when you’re a mom of a new teenager, they don’t always like what you post and INSIST on editorial approval, etc, etc, blah.. WYH. Was I so annoying at 13? Let’s not answer that.
Also, “they” read the posts with a little bit of laughter and reminiscing but mostly disdain, pointing out spelling errors and lack of fact checking on my part. Sometimes I’m being called out for lying. Or for being old with bad recall. Sheesh minor details. This is my blog and I’ll write it to the best of my recall abilities. Ahem.
It’s probably all true to some extent.
Jack: Can I read your blog?
(Another way for him to use a digital device before bed. Hmmm.)
mr: Sure, but just read random posts so you see some from all your different ages.
Jack: No I want to go in order starting with the newest.
Jack: (Starts reading the blog and notices that my last post was in early May). Way to slack on posting, Mom!
me: Hey I’ve been busy.
Jack: (continues reading) This is a total lie…
me: Maybe I’ll post tonight…
Jack: (swiping down at lightning speed as he reads)… NOT true.
me: Geez, I can’t win…
Jack: Not true, Lie. OH that NEVER happened…
