Texts Our Kids Send Us After They Move Out

We asked our Grown and Flown Facebook Friends to share texts their kids sent them after they left for college.

How about your family? Any funny exchanges you would be willing to reveal (no names included) to give other parents a view into your son or daughter’s sense of text-humor? Please visit our Facebook page here and add to the list.
