Yes, this was an actual conversation
Yup, I gave in. Caved. Crumbled like a house of cards.
Go ahead, say it – ‘If all the other moms were jumping off a bridge, would you jump off a bridge too, Jess?”
Apparently, yes. Yes, I would.
I got Katie a phone. Well, I helped Katie get a phone. Since she wanted a fancy, schmancy phone, she paid half. Besides, I always think a little skin in the game is a good thing. Might even give her a better shot of not losing it within the first week.
But before she could have it, there was some business to attend to. A contract to sign.
Nope, not the one with the phone company – Luau took care of that.
A contract with us. And with herself.
We came up with it together. Well, sort of; but ya know, she was there.
It went like this.
Part One ..
And Part Two …
So, yeah, if all the other moms jumped off a bridge, apparently I’d follow.
But I’d have a parachute.
Ed note: The contract was emended from the original to add rule #7, thanks to a brilliant suggestion from a reader. Thank you, Jen!
Ed other note: Two more additions are now in the works thanks to more fabulous suggestions from readers — She will tell us immediately if she receives an inappropriate text / picture etc and she will not allow anyone to else to use her phone. Thank you, ladies!
