I tell ya, kids are a challenge!  My teenager, I lover her...   but, I can't wait til next year when she's in college  ;)

Actually kids, I do not mind so much, it is teenagers that scare me. Especially when I think of how I was as one!
I apologize to my parents all the time about that.

    I was the good kid believe it or not.  No one ever really worried about me.  (I just never got caught >play SAINT theme<)

    LOL I feel your pain!  Ever since my daughter got home from college she has been "borrowing" mine...and I keep having to grab her back.  In fact, I think she's about to buy a refurbished one.  She is completely addicted! 

    You are probably creating a new Kindle addict!   ;)

    It took me until I had my own teenager to realize I owed my parents an apology (and I was a good kid).  They can be brutal!

    I'm glad your daughter enjoys reading.  I am hoping mine starts reading more. but she better save her paycheck so she can pay for her own Kindle  ;)

    Just never got caught is more like it.  Now that they're grown, my boys love telling me some of the things they did that I never knew about............at least I slept better.

    My 3 younger  kids sat around the table Christmas eve telling the stories about their older sister and the things she did to them and what they did to her What amazed me was she didn't like her kids hearing the stories because it might give them ideas.

    When I was very young, my childhood buddy Stevie and I set fire to a grassy field next door to my church.  Fortunately, the fire department put the fire out and the church was not damaged...  It was our dark secret for many years, we never told anyone.

    When my mom died, we had the service at that same church.  Stevie came down from Minnesota for the funeral.  When the minister invited people to share memories, surrounded by my mother's friends who had known me my entire life, Stevie shared the story of almost burning down the church.  To the ENTIRE CONGREGATION!!!!  I don't remember how he tied it into a memory of my mom, probably because I was sitting in sanctuary with my head in my hands....  Oy.

    Vicki, you are a riot!

    There are at least four of us Kindleboard members from Minnesota.  I'm Northwest of Minneapolis, in Rogers.  What part of the state are you in?

    I'm not sure but I think I stood up and said Stevie NOT THAT STORY!!!  Still laughing ruefully.  What can you do?  Literally have known Stevie since birth....

    And I'm an honorary Minnesotan, mom was from Hibbing till the day she died in Maryland.  She's the reason the second official answer to every question on Kindleboards is "Hibbing, MN".  I'm contractually obligated to work it in to every thread.

    OOH, Chocolate!  Great idea.  Wait, I'm not having an anxiety attack.  Now I've got to find something to be anxious about.

    You are helping Kim handle her situation, even long distance.  Think I'll help too.

    Kim, I feel your pain and anxiety. My kindle was kindlenapped for 3 days during the thanksgiving holidays by my DD. If it hadn't been for my supportive friends here on KindleBoards, I would not have survived! Your day of anxiety should just about be over by now and I know you will feel relieve once it is back in your hands!

    She's home!  She's home!  My Anabel is safe and sound back in my hands.

    And would you believe the little brat put me through a day without Anabel and she didn't even read.  The football game was on in the break room.  grrrrrrrr

    Thanks to everyone for keeping me company today!

    LOL so funny.
    My 6 year old daughter and I have read together pretty much since her birth. She is just learning to read for herself and she totally loves my kindle. We have several books on it that she reads outloud and even more that we read together. When she was packing to go spend Christmas break with her dad she asked about taking the Kindle. I said umm nooo. no no. She said, "But I have chapters on there too, not just you" I totally love that she likes to read but I think 6 is too young to be trying to take my kindle away from me.
