It's starting. . . . . .

You know I have always heard that when a girl gets into their teenage years you can completely forget about being able to use your telephone. Having five kids four of which are either in their teenage years or just about to be with two being girls I have been waiting for it to happen. Well, it finally has but not with who you think. I figured since our oldest girl is only 13 I had at least 1 maybe 2 years of telephone use left. But I was completely wrong. Never did I think I was going to have to chase down the cordless from my 14 year old son. As previously posted our oldest Jacob has his first girlfriend. Let me just say that I think the phone has become permanently affixed to his ear. I have never and I mean NEVER seen a boy that can talk on the phone for as long as he can! I mean we're talking two hours! From a girl yes, but a boy? I didn't think they could actually think of that many things to talk about on the phone. I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and order call waiting. I can see it now. In about 6 months our household will have probably gone through 20 phones because they'll have all blown up from over-use of using the flash button switching between calls! Gee, I wonder if the phone company would give me a group rate on phone lines?

Eva Braun here. Jacob is spending the night here and he has been on the phone for at least an hour so far. I am having flashbacks to 1988 - 92. Those were the days when I had 2 teenagers and they both had significant others. Just when I thought it was safe to pick up the phone again.............
