dave was supposed to blog this little episode, but i know how busy he is this past month!
a new parenting situation occured in our home a few days ago. before school, aiden looked at dave innocently and said, " dad?"
"when can i have a cell phone?"
aghast, dave responded, "what?!?!"
"yeah, a cell phone. all the kids at treasure times (the aftercare at school) have one."
***explosive laughter from dave***
our sweet, precious five-year old just asked about A CELL PHONE. what has this world come too?
i talked with aiden the next day questioning this interchange between him and his father. he said, "yeah, mom. i want a cell phone."
"no sweetie. you won't get one until you're older."
"like when i'm 6?"
(muffled laughter... i hope our kids won't be scarred from the fact their parents laugh at them all the time.)
"no.... MAYBE when you're 12. and that would only be one of those phones where you can only call your mom!"
aiden thought for a moment and with a smile on his face replied, "uh, how about when i'm 10?!?!"
but..... no. :)
