My pre-teen & teen girls are in the minority in that they’ve never really asked for a cell phone. But when Dan & I upgraded this year, we got an extra line & a simple phone (texting & calls) for them to share. Most of the time Kelly has it because she’s the one who goes to volleyball practice, etc. and needs to communicate with us about picking her up and such.
But Lauren recently commandeered it and was, apparently, bored on the bus ride home, so she started texting me. That’s when this exchange (below) happened…and made me think…I should get this girl her own phone, just for my own amusement.
Also…I admire her faith in the power of positive thought.
