My middle monster (Brice) ran off without checking with me. I was fuming. I didn’t want to be the Mom calling around for my kid. (As you know we like having the entire neighborhood and their pets at our place).
I was considering how much time to give him & where to start looking when my phone beeped that message came in.
Ashton (my 12 yo), closest to my phone, reaches for it
Me: You might not want to read that…
Ashton: Maybe it’s from Brice
(I see him push the button to show messages)
Me: Maybe it’s from Daddy
Me: Maybe he’s writing something s3xy.
Ashton: (not quite believing me, but reads anyway) Gross!
Well, he can’t say I didn’t warn him!
And before the Ashton recovered, Brice was back home!
There are a lot of s3xting definitions on the web. In case you are wondering how far we go:

Definition 2: Sending a message with the hopes of having a s3xual encounter later (Yes, Yes!)
Definition 3: Sending nude or semi-nude photos (A GREAT BIG NO!!!)
