My 13 Year Old Son And A Text Message

My 13 Year Old Son [commonly referred to on this blog as JCH otherwise known as Who-Steen] will never cease to amaze me.

While he has been executing stereotypical teenager behavior as of late [complete with *eye rolls* and *heavy sighs*] I have to admit, I’ve been quite lucky.  He really doesn’t talk back, he basically follows the rules, and he doesn’t ask for very much.

Of course there are moments [few and far between] when we have our problems. But every now and then, he will do something so unexpectedly kind, it simply melts my heart.

Last weekend, while visiting his father, my son sent me a Text Message, just like he always does – whenever he is away from home. Only this particular Text Message, was different from all the other Text Messages he normally sends.

May I present to you, The Best Text Message Of All Time:


And yanno what?

He wasn’t even trying to butter me up, or get out of trouble.

He sent it just because he wanted to!

    Kids are a lot of work, but moments like this make it all worth it!


    Yes I am!

  • Nice. He’s a really sweetheart. I think he’s an amazing kid.

  • Jay

    Awwwwww! That is so sweet!! Seems you’re bringing him up right, Meleah!

    My youngest told me today that he felt that he had a great upbringing. He said the only criticism he could think of was a slight resentment that I hadn’t let him watch 15 rated movies before the age of twelve! And even after that, I watched them first. LOL! Hey, if that’s the only complaint he has, I’m happy!

  • Sweet!

  • Meleah

    He really IS amazing

    I hope so!
    And I also let my son watch R rated movies too!

    It sure was!

  • Well now that’s very nice of him. It’s hard for teen age boys to do that you know.

  • Such a single gesture makes everything-life worthwhile, doesn’t it? 🙂

  • Meleah

    My son rocks!
