Ah, the age of technology. Laptops, ipods, cell phones, blackberries, iphones…..anything we need is available at the touch of a finger. Amazing.
Not to be left out of this technological craze, the girls recently made laptops out of old Styrofoam containers so they could get on Facebook and check email. Yikes.
What made me think cell phones would be any different?
They know the lingo. Just text him, mom.
They ham it up for the video or pictures. Not on my phone though. Mine doesn’t do that.
They play with the old phones which have been discarded or broken due to death by texting.
Oh, and a side note for my friends: if a battery is still in a phone, it is still able to call 911. Learned that lesson. Yep.
We are now the proud owners of new cell phones designed just for kids.
As we did errands this weekend, and separated the girls, each yelled to the other…...”take your phone. I’ll text you!”
Funny thing is….when we got home from our separate shopping trips, they talked about texting and calling each other.
Cool thing about these phones is they don’t make noise. Only the user makes noise. And, you call someone by pushing the first letter in their name. Talk about speed dialing!
Downside is….we don’t know if we’re being called. Abby was very indignant when I did not answer my phone recently. Well, gee, I didn’t know it was ringing.
Hmmm…..wonder what technology will bring by the time the little ones are teenagers?
