My sons are 15 and 11. They are not on social media yet. They are probably the only two in the world their age who aren’t, but what can I say, I am a protective mom. They had no idea I had been blogging about them. They had no idea these blogs are linked to my facebook account for all of my friends and family to enjoy. I am not sure how they found out. My husband must have let it slip or something. It doesn’t matter. Now they know. Sam, my youngest, is not too happy about it.
“Mom, are you going to blog about me again today?”
“I don’t know. Why?”
“I’ve decided you will owe me $3 every time you write about me.”
My husband bursts out laughing. “Three dollars? What’s the deal with $3?”
“Fine,” Sam fires back. “Two dollars then.”
“Two dollars, you are going the wrong way, Jack!” My husband is laughing harder now.
“Sam, I hate to break it to you, but I am not paying you squat! And I will be blogging about this conversation!”
