Hmm... I often wander what we did as kids without cell phones. Here is some examples of how cell phones are used in our household:
I'm upstairs folding laundry(notice I said upstairs) Jeff is in our attic bedroom where his office is. My cell phone rings so I jump up and run all the way downstairs to answer it and it's Jeff just needing to ask me a quick question:)
Jeff and I are 2 houses down in a serious conversation with our neighbors whose son is in trouble and Jeff's phone rings. It is Janae---she wants to talk to me--Jeff says "is it an emergency because we are really busy-- she is yes oh yes!--so I get on the phone and Janae says "Mom can I go get a video tonight?GRRR!! I think Janae learned what a real emergency was though after talking with her Dad later on! HA!
Phone conversation caught on answering machine between Jaida (6yrs) and Gma---I was gone at the time.
Gma: Is your Mom there?
Gma: Is Jordan or Janae there?
Gma :can I talk to one of them
Jaida: can you just call them on their cell phone cause they are allll the way upstairs and I don't want to go get them.(then rattles off their number--didn't know she knew it)
G-ma: well is Daddy there?
Jaida: yes could you just call him on his cell phone
Then there's just my typical call while grocery shopping---Mom can you tell Jalen to stop bugging me??? Mom when will you be back??? Mom will you get me a vanilla coke while you are out??? etc........
What would we do without cell phones :)
