So, I was having this grand conversation with my youngest, Molly. You know the conversation I am talking about. It is the one where a child is trying to weasel something out of said parent. Gird up your loins, Mom...this one's a doozy!!! So, she wanted to know when she was allowed to have a Facebook account. I told her the same answer I have told all the kids...when you are 12 and there will be BIG monitoring on my part done. If you can deal with the fact that I am looking at what you are writing then I have no issues, but being that I am here to protect you this is the rule. Take it or leave it. I am ready for a huge battle...I will succeed!!! Honestly, there was no need for it...Molly ended the entire argument before it even happened!!! Here is the conversation:
Molly: Mom, When can I have Facebook?
Me: When you are twelve, sweetheart.
Molly: (sighing) How about when I am thirteen?
Me: (wondering what trap I am walking into) Sold!!! You can have Facebook when you are 13!!!
I walked away and she was stunned that she won the debate...until she realized...she truly lost. Sweet!!!!
