There’s no shame. Now that you’re divorced, you’re having trouble connecting with your teenage daughter. It happens.
It’s easy to be jealous when she spends time with her friends or your ex and you just don’t know how to let her know she’s still your little girl. Never fear, we’ve got you covered.
There’s no better way to reconnect with your daughter than through emojis! Just use any of the following pre-written text messages to help you navigate all the potential pitfalls of making sure she feels loved as you navigate this new world without Steve.
It’s OK if you borrow my lipstick and sunglasses. Just let me know next time.
I am uncomfortable letting you see Finding Dory with that Jewish boy, but I trust you.
Please stop Snapchatting your father pictures of clothes you want him to buy for you while we are spending time together.
If you do not take your little brother trick-or-treating like I asked, I am taking away your phone.
Those pants make you look like a lesbian (which would be OK!), but if you aren’t, think about the message you’re sending.
I didn’t have time to make dinner because I was late for spin class. I left you money by the phone to order Papa John’s.
DID YOU GO THROUGH MY PURSE AGAIN?
It was nice to finally meet that Jewish boy at Dos Tios. Sorry if I embarrassed you. Cheryl and I had NO clue you’d be eating there.
Did you practice your entire French horn piece for the Winter Recital?
I’m making dinner. Are you at Sarah’s?
Guess I’m not gonna see you today. Use the credit card to pay for your service learning trip to El Salvador with Youth Group.
Want to get a manicure after school? You can bring Sarah.
You were so good in Les Miz!!! Sorry I couldn’t stay until the end. I had to go back to work.
I hope you’re having fun at Sarah’s. I feel like I never see you anymore.
Please FaceTime me.
I love you.
Where are you?
Please talk to me. I need you. I’m barely keeping it together.
