Ok funny, hilarious, at first I was a little miffed, being the one that taught my kids that now range in age from 42 to 50 how to use a computer, cell phone and the rest, we sort of still to this day have a reverse situation. Then I came up with the bright idea that if we all played computer games we could stay in touch more often, you know, MMORPG’s, World of Warcraft, how do you suppose that went? LOL
I’m too scared to think lol!
Some of these are very hilarious indeed! 🙂 My parents are better at making use of their smartphones though!
Good stuff! 🙂
oh my goodness – I am laughing out loud so hard right now at your Why Parents Should Not Text post – I am a mom of a grown daughter, with my own experiences of learning to text – oh so funny – so I totally appreciate all those uh-oh’s! Stopped by because you followed my blog – thank you so much! So glad I did – love your posts!!
Now Mindy, I want you to think carefully about this. You love your daughter don’t you? Are you really still texting her and putting her through some of the examples shown? Is that fair on her!!!?? 🙂

This made me laugh so hard I cried!
Omg that was awesome! I laughed so hard I cried
I’m gonna reblog this on my blog ‘Through the Fire’
Great stufff! Thank you! 🙂
Thanks for following our blog, love those pictures on yours
Really funny, even more really needed the laughs at this time in my life!
these are quite funny!
A riot!! My problem when texting is the spell checker, or whatever, changing my simple words to words I would never put in a text. My kids keep reminding me to proof before I send.
Spellchecker – not fun! Agreed! 🙂
LOL I remember my mom with her first touch screen phone XP
I’m forwarding this to all four of my adult children. Maybe they’ll finally “get it.” Thanks for this post.
Ha ha! Forward away! 🙂
I liked the message with ‘we are thinking of buying you a new car’. What a clever way to attract attention.
You have a lot of interesting posts here on your blog. I had a great time exploring it. Thanks for following my blog and that ways helping me discovering yours. 🙂
One more thing which calls for applause is that you take time to reply to each of the comments. Kudos and lol (lots of love).
Hallo Anamika! Thanks for visiting. Hope you are enjoying the summmer break with Dhruv. 🙂 (How do you say that – Droov? Druv?)
Yes we are definitely enjoying the summer break. Summer is a very small window where I live in UK for sunny days are far in between.
Well…Dhruv is an Indian name and since in american accent the sound ‘dh’ is missing, he can be called as Droov. 🙂
Mums texts, not emails – See…it’s contagious!
Shudder. Your post on mums emails reminds me of when a very dear friend, sent me the following helpful message: “You can’t go down the A22.” Unfortunately, she misspelled the second word. She is very, very lucky I am fond of her.
I have to say I really like your blog. The variety is brilliant. I found great inspiration in “waking people up before alarm clocks” i.e banging a pole on their window. I have decided to try a similar method on my teenage son which will involve me prodding him from his bedroom doorway with a very long stick (I fear he may be less than impressed, but it’s worth a go).
Also, if you are the person responsible for the picture/post of the Taj Mahal made out of rice,(I see other foodie bits on your site) I congratulate you – things like that strangely interest me too. (If you are not, my apologies – I seriously need to learn how to bookmark!).
Best wishes and thanks again for such a good laugh.
Oh dear! One little letter and an apostrophe can mean so much! 😯 Anything that annoys teenagers is fine by me – it is our role – nay our duty to do these things! Taj Mahal – yes responsible for post but not the dish itself! And get well soon! 🙂
Ha..ha..ha..!! Thanks for the fun. But it got me confused, though. I thought parents invented the texting stuff.
This is just great…I just can’t stop laughing…:-)

Here is a delightful summary of why parents should not text. Ever.
Oops, I am a parent. What am I saying?
Can’t stop laughing! =D
Oh mamma quante risate mi sono fatto…vorrei tanto che nostra mamma ci mandasse dei messaggi ogni tanto ahahahah
Grazie Stefano. 🙂
Just had my laugh for the day! Thanks, looking forward to more…:)
Some of these text exchanges are pretty funny. Thanks for the laughs. Also thanks for visiting my blog.
You’re welcome Choreg. 🙂
I would gladly brave the perils of parental texting if only I could a) get my kids to charge up their phones; b) get them to carry them reliably; c) not run down the batteries before school gets out, which shouldn’t be that hard because they’re not supposed to be using them during class (you’d think). Thanks for liking my blog post.
He he! 🙂
So funny, I really did laugh out loud. I have to share this.
Though, I’m a mom and I texted before my kids were born. So I am a little better at it than these guys. 🙂
Yay! The first commenter Mom to take that crown!
Great post! It’s good to laugh first thing in the morning!
Thanks Byron indeed it is! 🙂

Funny and Nice
Very funny! Mom’s come back to “Coming Out,” however, was very clever and I think qualifies her, if only her, for texting!
I love it. The most funny and nice blog I ever read. Long time I didn’t laugh this way.
Thanks for changing my mood.
Thanks for following my blog.
This has made my evening! Haha thanks! X

Too funny, I remember stumbling into some of these pictures while surfing the net before. It’s all summed up into this post by theeditorsjournal.wordpress.com so I had to reblog and keep it on my blog!
There is a Vine video craze at my house and my teenagers (ages 19 and 15) are ALWAYS sticking their devices in my face because I MUST see the ‘funniest video ever’ … It is rarely worth the few seconds it lasts. Needless to say we have different opinions of what constitutes funny but I gathered them around to read this post and we are all in agreement — Hilarious!
Yay! Unity in the world at last! 😀
Plus, “It is rarely worth the few seconds it lasts.” Hmmm…seen quite a few and think I agree!
Thanks for the laugh reading the funny texts. Thanks for following. My blog. Blessings.
🙂 But what are Texas Toes??!!
Before I moved here I would make regular trips. I got here early and I would get a manicure and pedicure. So I would go back and tell my friends and relative I had texas toes. I realized it was catchy so I started using it.
Ha Ha and so very true.
Ain’t it? 🙂
