I like to think of myself as a pretty laid back, understanding and compassionate mom but I do wish someone could please explain to me why my 11 year old son is begging, pleading and harrassing me for a new cell phone.
Notice I said a NEW cell phone. You see, we don't usually believe that an 11 year old homeschooled child who usually is only a few houses away when playing with friends really requires a cell phone, however when Daddy had to get a new phone we decided that since our contract wasn't up on the other one we'd let the children share it.
Ah, ha. That was a clue - notice I said.....SHARE.
You see, my lovely son and adorable daughter can't agree on anything, much less the sharing of a certain cell phone that neither of them ever take anywhere.
He wants his NCSU logo as the wallpaper. She wants pictures of kittens.
He wants some weird ringtone. She wants a chiming one.
The torture of this mother never ends.
I'm telling you, if I hear one more word about how he desperately needs a new cell phone so that I will be able to find him while he's out playing I'm going to take that red Razor and flush it down the toliet and the next time I need to find him while playing I'll use the same method that has been used for years.........
I'll walk out on the back porch & yell.
