What have you been doing with all that free time you weren't spending with us?
When I go to look at my messages these days, I see that Charlotte is texting on my phone almost as much as I am (she uses it to text her dad, cousins, a couple of friends). I'm not getting her her own phone and am ok with this set-up for now. However: She is also constantly borrowing it and reading my texts and listening to the voicemails (that I never listen to anyway). I don't read her journal, as we've discussed here (thank you all!), but I never want her to feel like I am hiding something from her, so I willingly hand it over when I'm not using it to look through pictures, etc etc. I am certain this is not the healthiest boundary-wise. Any advice or experience on it much appreciated. Xo
