Thinking ahead

"Mom. When I'm in 6th grade I'll have a cell phone" said one of my 8-year-old sons.

"O.k." was my non-committal reply.

"Just one that makes phone calls" he assured me. "Not one with tons of games and stuff."

The other 8-year-old chimes in "we won't get one of those until we're in college."

Ohhhh......

Now that sounds very reasonable :)

It's good that they don't want to plunge in with both feet right away. Save the games for college, sure. Makes sense.

Yes! Make them sign a pledge to that effect RIGHT NOW! In blood.

Too bad any contract likely wouldn't be legal.
