Of course, both kid related…
Being my son’s alarm clock.
He used to be responsible at getting himself up school mornings. He gets up around 6am (it could be later but he has this thing about taking 25 minute showers…)
As the school year is progressing, he is dragging his feet. I think its because hes staying up too late. We ‘think’ he’s in bed, but …. the culprit may be that CELLPHONE of his- some late night texting? I know,
“Duh, remove the phone from his room!”
ah, but I’ve tried that, to which he proclaims
“Mom, that’s my alarm.”
I need my sleep – I should NOT have to get up at 6am or even 620am to wake Prince Charming. Two mornings straight my eyes have opened at 640am to find him lost in deep slumber…
Tonight he is receiving the ‘old fashioned’ alarm clock from the guest room, and the cellphone will be confiscated.
Being my daughter’s ITUNES sugar daddy.
Opened my email this morning and there sits another Itunes invoice – for more money spent at the Itunes store online. I hate how Itunes is set up – or maybe I don’t know the RIGHT way to do it with kids? Please, someone direct me!!!
I have an Iphone. I use Itunes and the store for app downloads, occasional music – etc. You must have a credit card on file for the account. Fine.
My kids have Itouch’s. They use Itunes as well – its the place to download cool stuff. They are supposed to download the FREE stuff, and if there is something requiring purchase I need to know BEFORE they pull the trigger. I’d rather they NOT have access to MY credit card on file, but how do I do that? And HOW can they USE those stupid Itunes gift cards instead of it automatically charging my credit card?
My son ‘gets’ it – I rarely have a problem from with him. My daughter? Always the one behind the random Itunes invoices. Of course I hit her up for the amount – she acts clueless – like these weren’t intentional purchases – she thinks, somehow, it should have been free – or maybe that ‘preview’ purchase bill that pops up on her screen is written in Chinese?
I’m ready to shake sense into her. She isn’t ‘clueless’, even though I get a blank stare in response to my ramblings about irresponsiblity – she just doesn’t care.
Thanks for letting me vent 🙂 Now I can start my day – I promise I have a bunch of cool stuff to post about!
