A Cape Elizabeth, Maine, Dad and husband is an internet hit, and doing a charity show this week!

It was just a few years ago that Chip Leighton got on TikTok and started posting apologies he's made to his wife, and what it's like to have teenagers! He went viral quickly, with millions of likes and new followers.

His latest viral sensation is about the texts he gets from his teenagers. One text was about "where to find pasta water" at the grocery store. His family is the inspiration behind his upcoming book, 'What Time Is Noon?  Hilarious Texts, Ridiculous Feedback, and Not-So-Subtle Advice from Teenagers.' Look for that this fall.

I've watched this a couple of times and wondered, "If there was texting when I was a teen, would I have sent the same kind of texts?" The Mother's Day stuff really hit home! I just know I would have Venmoed my mom six bucks and called it good!
