DS (12 yr) has been doing his own laundry for a while (still has folding issues ). Actually, he does it at home (with me) but at my ex's he doesn't do it - my ex does (ex used to get passive/agressive to avoid doing laundry)

Yay! I'm Super Mom! I burn my phone up with texting (not my kids so much though). DD (14yo) says it's embarrassing to have a mom who texts more than she does. LOL.

Re: When DSD goes to college

I text slowly, so slowly that it drives DD(15) nuts. She grabs the phone and sends the text for me. - The result is that people get a text that is spelt correctly, but doesn't get the message across!

This may have caused one or two um... terse discussions. (!)

Supermatt, i totally agree with the texting thing, much less pressure for everyone.
