Every Monday I text all three of my kids in a group text. They're older now - 31, 25 and 16. I know. Yeah, big age differences. That's a story for another time. My youngest just got a phone in August. Each kid had to wait until they were 16 before they got a phone.… Continue reading Own What You Know
