SABBATICAL STATE OF MIND

Do you want a Mom?

January 10, 2019

 

I want a Mom.


Our son asked for his phone to go out with his Dad. He was going to sit in the lobby at work while Dad had a meeting, or in the car, or walk around. So “Mom, can I have my phone? For communication purposes?”


Here’s the thing. I forgot I loaned it to him. So, when I went to bed and checked the charge on his phone. It was only at that moment that I realized the phone had been checked in.


O.M.G. The Phone Repo is working! This is the self-regulation we were hoping for. 


Another ah-ha moment
Me:  A couple of days before “You know you can still receive messages on your iPad.”


J: "Mom, turns out I don’t want to. I don’t want people beeping me at any time."  Wow, what an awareness! 


💡🗣 it from the rooftops “Like I said, I want what he has.”

Why isn’t there some responsible adult that helps me to check myself before I wreck myself?   And oh how I wish I appreciated it more when I was a teen!
