Moms and Technology 4

Yes, one more for the road because I don’t want to come up with an original post. This one actually took place the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, while I was baking a cheesecake. I was answering texts while trying not to get cream cheese all over my phone.

Her: How do you put page numbers and a header into a Word document?

Me: Just add page numbers and then type in your header.

Her: No I need them to be on opposite sides.

Me (never heard that before): WHAT?

Her: It’s APA format!

I had no idea. I had to go look it up, and let me say it’s ridiculously complicated. Seriously, APA, what’s so horrible about having a header and a page number on the same side? And boy am I glad I’m not in school anymore.


  1. I wouldn't have had a clue either. I've never even added page numbers and headers.

  2. So that one's not really her fault.

  3. I think I had heard of that. Still, it's silly. There's a way to do it, though, isn't there?

  4. I don't think that one was a mom fail... What an odd way to format something.


Please validate me.
