So, after my last post..(Clueless)  I shamelessly made my son feel guilty about his snowboarding trip he is about to take.  Yeah...I heard about this trip through my hubby, and still feeling a little peeved about the step children's message on facebook, I sent a text to my son and just said that "I was a little mad at him".  He he...I know, that was a little childish, but hey, it only took about 10 minutes for him to call me and say..What did I do now?

I just want our children to talk to us...I know they are all busy with their own lives, but we can't not keep in touch. 
And...I don't want to hear things via fb, or through the grape vine!
My son and I have always been close, and I want to keep it that way.  So, a little shameless guilt playing on my part is just part of being a Mom.

So, now I have a Lunch date with said Son.

Ha...joke is on me...Son just called and cancelled our lunch date.  God, I need a Puppy!

Have a Great Weekend!

Please don't tell me this as my oldest is getting ready to leave for college this fall. I started texting to stay in touch and it has been wonderful - I hope it continues!

Gosh, I so hear you on this one. I hardly ever hear from my oldest son, and usually only if I text or call and leave a message. Oh I know he loves me and all, but he is really not considerate on the communication. It hurts sometimes. My younger son calls more often so I don't have to pull any Mommy tricks, but the older one gets my guilt trips once in awhile.

My mom and I talk on the phone weekly, and email almost daily, so we've never had an issue there.

But my brothers hardly ever chat with my mom. And FB makes it SO much worse.

My middle bro posted something about wanting to propose to his girlfriend, but she doesn't want to get married. My oldest bro misread it as "they are getting married" and told my mom, who checked FB and misread it as "middle bro proposed to girlfriend online" was a massive day of drama. All of which could have been resolved with ONE phone call. But the boys just don't want to chat, I guess. *eyeroll*

It's totally your son's loss if he doesn't want to go to lunch with you. Someday, hopefully, he'll grow up enough to realize that our time on Earth is precious and short, and good relationships (especially parental ones) are worth any effort to maintain. :) said...

I know how you feel. My son never lets me know what he is doing nowadays. I usually find out from FB too...actually I found out from my party loving, chain smoking, wine drinking mother yesterday that he and his girlfriend are going to visit her in Cyprus. He never mentioned it to me! You have to let go I suppose and hope they'll eventually come to you...darn difficult some days though.
