A good reason to give a kid a cell phone...

I have long been on record saying any kid of mine doesn't get a cell phone until they get a driver's license. I just don't think that there's any reason to have one until you can drive.

Well, I may be wrong. Christina (co-blogging at fistful of fortnights) demonstrates how a Mom can use the kid's cell phone to her advantage. Every morning.

Heh. Well done.

Ha! We finally got the boys a cell phone that they share. It's come in very handy with carpooling and such. The best part is it gives me peace of mind and helps me to loosen the reigns a bit knowing they are never more than a phone call away.

My oldest son recently made the mistake of texting me during class instead of his friend at another school. Hehe...poor kid didn't know I could yell with my fingers, too.

My son is 2.5 yrs. old and wants a cell phone so he can "call mommy when she works". Of course, he won't get one till he is much, much older, but it is a handy way to stay in touch!
