I'm Such a Mean Mother

At dinner the other night, I told Alex to put his phone away.

"But Mom, someone's sending me a text."

"That doesn't mean you need to read it right away. I don't think it's necessary to have your phone at the table."

"But Mom...."

"Put it away. NOW."

Ted interjected here. "Your mom's right. You shouldn't have your phone at the dinner table."

He barely ate anything because he wanted some private one-on-one time with his phone.


Imagine me expecting him to eat dinner with us without his phone. I'm so mean.

How dare you expect him to eat dinner with the family and pay attention to y'all?? I mean, my goodness! LOL

Good for you Cindi and Ted! If only more parents did their jobs!
