Am I paranoid?

Let me first start off by saying, I am not the type of mom who goes around snooping through my kids stuff. Stephanie has a Facebook account and when we set that up, the rule was that I had to have access to it and I was allowed to check on it from time to time. Just to make sure I know who her friends are and what she is doing online. Ok?

All that said, yesterday she got a message while I was by the computer and she saw that it said LOL and said, I know what that is, don’t open it, so I didn’t. Of course the way she was so quick to say, don’t open it, got my curiosity up.

After she went to bed I logged back into her account to check her Facebook messages. She had written to a girl from Siloam and all it said was, “Hey! Do you sat, blowed, burned or tried? Just curious?” Me being the paranoid mom that I am instantly thought of drugs or something. I know that Stephie is a good girl but I was starting to wonder what she was doing or knew about.

So I sent out some text messages to ask my friends if they knew these terms or if I should be concerned. No one knew but wanted an update once I got it figured out.

Well I got inpatient waiting for her friend to write back so I could figure it out and just asked Stephanie today. What she meant to type was “Hey! Do you SAY blowed, burned or tried?” I guess that when someone says something to you that is a slam the kids around will say, BLOWED! or TRIED! Anyway, it is just middle school slang for a slam! Ok, now I feel stupid! But hey, I am not naïve enough to think none of my children will never get curious or want to try things and I just don’t want to be the stupid parent that never saw it coming, you know?

Anyway, so that is what it meant and thank god that is all it meant!
