Oh... let's swtich the subject

For those of you who do not already know, my parents spaced out their children a little bit. I think I have said before that I am 1 of 6 children. I am the 3rd to be exact. I have an older brother, and an older sister, then a younger brother and 2 little sisters. The oldest 4 are between the ages of 29-22 right now, and my little sisters are 11 and 10... my mom had them when she was 43 and 44 years old. (Same dad, same marriage) The "little girls" as they are called in our family help keep my parents young!

Anyway, my mom has allowed them before to get email accounts but it all ended pretty quickly when they got in each others accounts and sent emails to each others friends. Things like "you're a poo poo head and your mom is the queen of poo poo kingdom." You would have thought the world had ended! So their accounts got deleted for some time. But now my mom has decided to let them have accounts again so that they can email their friends they met at camp this summer. Since I am such a HUGE fan of gmail I told my mom to get them a gmail account. I didn't take into account that that would also lead them to use gchat and talk to me ALL. DAY. LONG. I usually tell them I can't talk and just to email me, but a little while ago I was actually talking to one of them. "A" is 11, and "K" is 10. This is a conversation between K and myself. (she was using A's gchat.... which is not gonna go over good if A finds out.

me: i cant do it at work sweetie

A: oh ur at work?
me: yep
until 5:00
A: i didnt know u had to work in the summer?
me: haha
i have to work year round
A: sucks.................
me: hey! watch your language
A: my bad.................
me: does mom let yall say "sucks" ?
A: i dont know i say it all the time and she doesn't seem to care
me: interesting
go ask her what it means
A: yeah
A: she's talking to someone ....i think i know what it means
me: what do you think it means?
A: u dont wanna know!
me: i know what i means, i wanna know if you know
A: does it have something to do with S-E-X ?
me: kinda
A: oh
lets switch the subject....

My sister and I are in our 30's but my brothers are 15 & 13! It's nice to know I'm not the only one with such a spread out family.

Love the "queen of the poo poo kingdom" comment. Totally cracked me up!

Ha that is a great story. I love gchat! It is the best.
Last year my little sister stayed with me and was completly baffled that I had to work all day long in the summer. It was funny.
