The kid wanted a Facebook account. Now, DH and I are pretty strict. We did not give in to her easily. We had to think about it, mull it over, digest it, dissect it. Finally we relented. I had my own page so I could keep an eye on things.
She was happier than a dog eating poop. Everything’s great. Happy kid, happy mom. Until about 6 months later.
The Kid: Mom, what are you doing?
Me: I’m checking my notifications.
The Kid: Oh, mom get with the program. Facebook is so yesterday.
The Kid: Can I get an Instagram?
First of all, it took me a year to figure out the term “notifications” and she is ready to move on? Second of all, what the hell is an Instagram and why do you need it? Apparently, it’s a place where you post pictures. In my opinion, no one wants to see how you dress your cat.
Now she’s working on us for a Twitter account. Isn’t that so “yesterday?” Chirp chirp. Or is it Tweet?
