Caving in July 15, 2011

Posted by clintcarter in Family.

Madi got a phone this week.  Yes, I realize I’m the dad who said my kids wouldn’t have a phone until they were 16.

I’m not sure how we got to this place.  A couple of months ago she asked me about getting a phone since she was starting middle school.  I ended up saying that she could have a phone when she paid the monthly bill.  2 months later she has one.

She started earning money and decided that’s how she wants to spend it.  I think I’ll have to put a hard age cap on it now or else Emma will start asking me for one.

The one thing that has been really cool is getting texts from Madi.  I love looking down at my phone to see her smiling face with a message for me.

So what if I’m a pushover when my kids ask me for things.  At least she doesn’t have a smart phone.
