My darling 12 year old daughter wants a MySpace page/account, whatever the kids are calling it these days. Every time she asks, I tell her "no", but she doesn't seem to comprehend the meaning of that word. She has told me that I am not a "cool mom", and that I just don't understand the pressure she is under to have a MySpace. My favorite line she has used on me is "Why do you care so much about me to not let me have one?" See, ALL of her other friends, according to her, have one, so she needs one too. She really needs to stop, she is embarrassing herself at this point...tonight she told me that she needed it to "talk" to her friends. I told her to email her friends and she said that none of her friends had email addresses. Hmmm...so, I asked her how they had a myspace if they didn't have an email address?!?! She quickly replied that those were all "made up" email addresses. I am so over this conversation, I could throw up. Wait, I think I just did a little in my mouth, eeewwww.
She has a blog, but of course that is not good enough. No one her age has blogs! So, I told her to start a new trend at her school, get all of her friends blogging!! She just looked at me and rolled her eyes. That is a look I am seeing alot of these days.
