Tumblr is Grounded.

Dear sweet Weez:

Remember how much fun you had this past quarter? Remember how often you got to ride your longboard? Remember how much time you got to hang out with friends and play on the computer? Remember how excited you were to get your very own cell phone for Christmas? Yeah, I remember these things too.

I found some pictures on your Facebook that encapsulate some of these awesomely fun times.

Here’s a pic of you and Dottie taking selfies on your laptop. So cute!

This is a picture of you sharing a Tumblr posting on Facebook because you liked it. You really enjoy Tumblr don’t you? I can tell because you are always, always on it.

Here’s another picture of you and your longboard. You had so much fun riding around getting cool shots and then editing the pictures for these cool effects.

This is another super cool picture you took over Christmas break when we had the freeze. You really are so talented. I know you had a blast sharing your art on all the social media apps you use.

Do you also remember how you set a goal to complete French by Christmas break? Remember how I thought it was such a great idea that I offered to give you $100 if you met your goal? Remember how I did not nag you nor did I ask if your homework was completed before you went out to do some cool activity or hang with friends? Remember how last week I told you that your French teacher emailed me to tell me that not only did you fail to accomplish your goal to complete French by Christmas break but you are now 5% behind?

I’m so glad that you remember all of these things too. Your memories are that you are going to have for the remainder of this quarter if you do not GET OFF TUMBLR and CATCH UP ON YOUR FRENCH!!  Yes, that’s right! I see that you are at school NOT doing your French but filling up your Tumblr newsfeed. I see it all, babe. Don’t forget, I’m the mom. I know everything.

Here are a few things that you will be without if you do not heed this one and only warning.

Bye-bye laptop.

Bye-bye laptop.

Bye-bye longboard.

Bye-bye cellphone.

I do all of this, not to be mean, but because I love you. Really, this hurts me more than it hurts you.

xoxo,
Mom
