<p>I remember a really funny thread about phrases you do NOT want to hear when your kid calls home from college (the ones that stuck with me were, "How do you get blood out of a parka?" and "What's dad's social security number? Cuz the hospital wants to know.") </p>
<p>So, I thought I'd see what memorable texts we parents are getting from our kids.</p>
<p>I was cleaning out my inbox and found a text from my D that seemed like it summarized my life as the parent of hs students:
D: "Can you meet me there with a check?"</p>
<p>I also got one from D last summer while she was on a date with her BF:
D: "Is poison ivy contagious?"
H responded: "YES"</p>
<p>I've also gotten 4 texts this summer from S's college. We had signed up for the Public Safety text alerts when S was a freshman. Apparently they don't turn them off when school isn't in session, so now I know that there have been 2 bear sightings on campus this summer. When last seen, the bear was near Zeta Psi and heading toward the river.</p>
