Texting


I think it would be cool if someone turned their text messages into a book. Texts between tweens, teens, lovers, marrieds, or siblings could reveal lots about those relationships. This is a sample of the daily back and forth jots between my daughter (Kenz's mom) and me.


Nana's INBOX


she's fine


I don't know yet


not really


she's sleeping I have nothing to eat here it's annoying


watched movie, Kenz is about to fall asleep


wanna bring us mcdonalds?


she's already asleep


we are going swimming


she is doing her Perlers



Nana's SENT


do you and Kenz wanna come here and eat?


how is precious package?


I am going to sleep, goodnite girls


who is picking up today?


her bathing suit is in her backpack


how was your dinner? did Kenz eat good after her gymnastic workout?



Texting is great for the daily communications that don't really need a phone call. Texting saves time and keeps people connected. I have used texting to send lonnng messssagesss when I needed to explain my position. Conversations in print are better when voices may sound angry or tired and cranky.


How did we ever live without textings?

(Sorry Nana, I thought you were Kenz's Mommy. So Kenz stay with you alone or does she NOt stay with you?)

Kenz spends a little bit of most of the week with me. She is with her parents the other times. I day cared her for the first four years. She has a whole bunch of people who love her madly!

My thumbs and fingers are too retarded to text much. Maybe if I did it more often . . .

I gave a daughter up for adoption many many moons ago, and the way we got to know each other for the first time was through text messages, I saved every bit of them and plan to put them into some kind of book for her. It's how she found out about where she comes from and who she is :o)
