You all know K, right? My girl. My oldest. My serious one, with a hint of sarcasm.
She loves ice cream.
She loves to smile.
She loves to read.
Every once in a while she loves to dress up. Altho, this particular time she was required to as she was on her way to a band concert.
She loves hangin out with her friend, Miss Danni.
And, shes very organized. (I LOVE that) In fact, it makes my heart just pit a pat- pit a pat.
Okay, so Im sure you also remember her prized possession she received for Christmas.
Its the love of her life, the apple of her eye. Not only does it text and play music, allow you to make your own ring tones, keep you in touch with the important people in your life, etc. Much to my surprise, just this morning, I also found out that it does something quite interesting.
See that little bell with a time next to it on the bottom left hand corner?
Apparently you can set alarms on this here phone. Why would you need to to do that you ask? Well, to alert you to things. Important things. Like when you need to set the table or when to brush your teeth. Why, you could even set it to wake you up from a nap if you wanted to. (Did I mention that I have the same phone as K?) I mean, not that I EVER take naps...but if I did, well I could set the little alarm to wake me in time to get things done before everyone got home for the day. I wouldnt want them to think I was laying around....relaxing.
This particular alarm tho...it has a very specific and time sensitive nature. You see, K has to be ready and in bed for the night by 9pm. Lights out at 930pm. As good as she is at time management sometimes things happen, ya know? She gets into doing something, she gets distracted.....all kinds of things can happen when youre 12 and a half.
Hence the reason for the alarm. The conversation that took place this morning, that I spoke of earlier, went something like this. Hey, K? Yes, mama. Whats this little bell thing on your screen? Its an alarm, she says. Well, why do you need that? To remind me to do something, she says. Yeah, I get that, but remind you of what? I mean, its set for 845 at night. What could you need to do then? I GOTTA eat dessert, mama. Ive missed it a few nights because I didnt leave myself enough time to get everything done. And I decided that wasnt a very good idea, to miss dessert. So, I set my alarm.
Oh. Well, that makes perfect sense. Carry on then.
