Ohhh parents

So I'm sure you all know the site When Parents Text, but if you have never been to it before, GO NOW!! You will die. My dad recently purchased an iPhone for himself after carrying around the same brick of a phone for about 10 years. His new phone made me think of this site, so today, while I was bored at work, I decided to read some of the latest texts. Here are a few that made my day! They are totally things my parents would text to me.

LOTR Wisdom

Gooood morning. Love you. Use your time wisely. Remember what Gandalf said. “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
This is totally something my dad would send to me.. If he knew how to text! He loves Lord of the Rings! I was cracking up when I read this.


Dad: A miracle happened in mass today. Call for details

Lenten Songs

Dad: Why can’t I find that song like a Jesus on iTunes?
Me: You mean like a G6?


Dad: what does D mean in Facebook talk
Me: Context please?
Dad: as in, thank you D
Me: :D That? It’s a smiley face.
Dad: Yes i can’t make a colon on here. thank you
Dad: How do I make a colon on my phone I want to smile at you


Mom: Can you please call me when you need to be picked up! Don’t do anything stupid! :-)8
Me: What is that emoticon?
Mom: bowtie man! He doesn’t do anything stupid
Cynthis would definitely text me that!

A1 for Waffles

Do you want waffles or muffins for breakfast? Just text “A1” for waffles or “B1” for muffins.
Me: Why did you go through all that trouble? Why can’t I just text “waffles” or “muffins”?
Mom: We are texting in code! ;););) :)
Me: Waffles
Mom: A1 or B1?
Mom: Sooo…A1?
Me: Mom. Yes.
Mom: I think I would rather have muffins. I’m making muffins

Jeggings pt. 2

Me: Remember, Sports Meeting at 6:30, you have to come to sign the papers.
Dad: o.k. wearing what?
Me: Jeggings & a blue shirt. why?
Dad: Jeggings?
Me: yes.
Dad: I don’t have any of those so…
Me: No Dad, I’m wearing jeggings, you can wear whatever you want.
Dad: o.k. btw: jeggings = awesome name for a new Lord of the Rings character


Top of the mornin to yer, my little Irish Princess, wear green I already pinched the mailman.
Pretty sure I get that same text from my mom every year.

Hope that made you laugh.
