Why I Should Not Let Gabe Hold My Phone While I Am In The Tub (or Why I Should Not Let Wil Load The Washing Machine Part III)

As you can tell by that wonderful title I am out of a phone yet again. Seriously!? I do not understand what the deal is with me and electronics. (Did I mention here that I have been through 4 Kindles in a year?) I swear it has everything to do with the fact that Noah has a magnet in his head.

Or maybe it's the fact that I let a three year old play with it or leave it on top of a car or maybe it is the fact I don't clean out pockets before I load the washing machine.


Anyway my phone can dial and my phone can receive calls. NOTHING ELSE! In the 1900's (as Wil likes to refer to my childhood) this would not have been a problem. HOWEVER now in the 2000's it is a major issue. What?

2000's- A phone that can't text?

1900's- What is a text?

2000's- A phone that can't check Facebook?

1900's- What is Facebook?

2000's- A phone that can't email?

1900's- What is email?

2000's- No Internet?

1900's- Have you seen the new paint program? It is Awesome!

See what I mean? I should not have a problem with a phone that can dial. But I do have a problem because my smart phone has taken away my ability to remember phone numbers. I can tell you my phone number from when I was in the 2nd grade (524-9144) but I can't remember my husband's office number to save my life. So even if can dial...I do not remember any numbers in which to dial! I am going to have to live with it for a while though because heaven knows I can't afford another deductible! I so could have paid for an iphone by now.

Onto less depressing mundane facts about me... Gabey Baby is about to turn three! He has a cool best friend that he has been having some play dates with. I went to pick him up yesterday and Gabe decided that he need to ride with. Problem is I only have one carseat. I do however, have a belt positioning booster seat that I threw in. Now I have no idea what the law is on belt positioning booster seats versus the 5 point harness deal and I certainly wasn't going to let someone else's child ride in what may or may not be an illegal booster seat so I did what any rational mother would do...

  1. I can upgrade to an iphone in July. Maybe I should put away my Evo at that time for when you will need it again:D
