Thought I’d make a light hearted/funny parent appreciation post. 😛
My mom is almost 50. She just got a smart phone about 2 months ago (she still had a flip phone,) and since then has discovered facebook. Its quite amusing.
First she didnt see why she should me and my brother, or her boyfriend. Her exact words were “I see you all the time, why would I need to add you?” Once her boyfriend threw a hissy fit and didnt talk to her for 2 days, she finally decided to add us.
I’m sure you guys have seen plenty of the types of posts where it has a picture with a saying and says “share if you agree.” She thinks every time she sees one, she HAS to share it and either write “I agree!” or “I dont agree!” Every. Single. Time.
I posted a picture of one of my dogs on a contest page, and she saw where it was listed under the name of the page, and freaked out thinking my dog was famous and shared this picture like 3 times.
And the most amusing (and also least amusing at the same time) thing she does…. She’s kind of decided that commenting on my statuses is better than texting. So I’ll post something like “yay, watching my favorite movie,” and she’ll comment “dont forget that tomorrow is junk day,” or something related to life. Another time I had posted that a dog followed me home from walking one of my dogs, and she read it when she got up for work (which was 4am) and thought I had just posted it, and commented “why are you walking at 4am?! I really dont feel comfortable with this.” I was cracking up.
Share your cute parent stories!

My mom is fairly Facebook illiterate too. My dad doesn’t have one but every time I put up a picture with him in it she tags “Tom’s Photography” thinking its him. She just types in Tom and tags whatever pops up! It’s hikarious. They’re leobably like “who is this crazy guy, it’s not us!”

My little sister recently introdcued my Mom to emoticons and now she uses them, in excess, in every post and text. When OSU beat MSU yesterday I swear there was a string of like ten of those silly little things!

my mom is a whiz with facebook, she bloody loves it, and she was completely computer illiterate 5 years prior. Shes the cutest lil lady ever. When i had facebook [ got rid of it ] she would always comment on my pics of my pets or me n my SO etc. Hilarious, I know there would always be a like from her and a comment that says ‘ too cute’ or you both look great ‘
everytime i used to message her on fb when i was in australia i would tell her stories and all id get back is <3 and the thumbs up lolololl

MissComicBook: Hahahaha, my mom is ridiculous with the emojis too.
She also doesn’t really understand the concept of texting. Instead of just texting something like “What time are we meeting Saturday?”, she’ll text: “TheGridMonster? You there?” and then only after I respond with “Hi mom” does she then ask her question.

My mom texts like she writes letters. It’s really funny. Example:
Do you want supper?
I’m making chicken. Love, Mom
Can you bring a vegetable? Love, Mom

We had ribs and brisket last night. My SO bought two different tasting BBQ sauces one spicyish tasting and one sweet from two different popular BBQ joints. This morning I put the spicy one on my left overs for work. I could have swore my BBQ sauce tasted very different so I called her randomly and said my FAV BBQ sauce had a weird taste. My mother then says ” Oh well last night I combined both sauces because you don’t need all those empty bottles in your fridge”
I just laughed it off what can I do other than say ” Oh my gosh”

I gave my mom my old Iphone and for some reason whenever she texted me, her texts looked something like this:
I asked her a few times what she meant and if she could resend them to me. Her reply was always “oh sweetie, it’s English! I am trying to learn English” (she recently moved to the US from Italy).

This isn’t about my mom, but about my grandma. She is still figuring out technology, but she has really caught on to e-mail. However, she doesn’t quite understand it. After every email, she always used to call us to let us know that she sent it. Also, there was one night where she needed to send an e-mail, but it was 9:30 at night, so it was too late to send.<br /><br />My grandpa got her an e-reader for Christmas and she wanted to take it on vacation, so she asked me to put 2 books on there for her. Well, her flights alone were a total of 20 hours, so I put about 15 books on there instead, just in case. Well, when I told her that, she just said “oh, but won’t that make it too heavy to carry in my purse?” hahaha

Equine_Breeder: That is adorable!
molokoa: lol! I seriously love that!
Mrs-mcm-0507: Aww! My family is more of the “okay, love you, bye” and then there’s an awkward silence for about 20 seconds while we decide who’s hanging up first. Haha.
adnama: Omg. That last bit legitimately cracked me up. How cute is she?!

My mom has finally started using her smartphone to full capacity. She now using the Internet to check the weather and found link regarding public criminal records. She asked me to find it because she lost it. Of course she lost it in the middle of 26 Internet tabs. I think 24 tabs were the weather.
When she gets a Facebook notification you would think she won the lotto.
