Dad: Lake Whitney is covered with pelicans.
Me: That's great, but you do know that now 50% of your all-time texts to me are about pelicans.
Dad: And? I like pelicans. 66%
Mom: Hey! Check out the birthday greeting I put up on your brother's FB!
Me: It just says, "Happy birthday!"
Mom: Yeah. I thought it would be nice.

I think this is a fun book, just don’t expect to be falling out of your chair with laughter like you might with other popular texting websites.
As a grandmother-who-texts, I laughed aloud or I totally didn't get it. There's a few I will ask about at the next family gathering.
I remember struggling with texting in the beginning and blush at the memory of some of the strange ways "spellcheck" changed what I intended.
I don't know if all the stories came from whenparentstext.com or if some were saved for the book, but it's a nice light-hearted change--especially during long waits at the medical center.
I will be reading it again, and maybe next time I will have grown up enough to understand the parts I didn't understand before.

And I don't care if I got strange looks for laughing out loud in public
Warning, this is one of those books you will find yourself reading out loud to innocent bystanders.
I can't remember laughing out loud so many times in the short time it took me to read this book - or even that many times in ANY book or series of books. It's hilarious and so much fun! I'm telling all my friends they have to read it and even sent a couple screen shots to friends showing them WHY they have to read it now.
This makes a very good light reading when traveling!
