I'm a Sucker for a Good Presentation

After dinner on Monday night our dear daughter sat us down for a little presentation.  She wants a cell phone.  I mean, REALLY wants a cell phone.  She has tried begging.  She has tried whining.  She has even tried verbal abuse.  This logical, business-like approach may just be tipping the scale in her favor . . .  (even if the numbers on the pie chart don't add up to 100).

  2. Love it! I love my t-mobile pay-as-you-go. Cheap phone ($10 I think) and then 100 dollars for a year. When I truly only use it for safety and convenience (darn hard to find a working pay phone these days), I never run out of minutes.

  3. Really? Kids these days... They are too smart for us aren't they? We gave in to Alex's request when he pointed out that i would not be able to get ahold of him after school once Andrew moved on to High School. I'm a sucker like that.

  5. Wasn't the dog her idea? You guys love the dog, maybe you will love her cell phone too. We have a kid's cell phone. I will admit, it is really nice to be able to send it with them if they decide to go out and about. I am sure it is only a matter of time before Em has one of her own though. I got my first glimpse of the teen years when we were at a restaurant with Em and four of her friends. They were all sitting around the table texting...I think each other.

  6. this is one reason why i like sydney so much. i relate to her. i used to write my parents formal business letters, stating my requests and/or complaints. maybe if i'd thought to use some sort of graphic representation of the numbers involved, i might have been more successful... :)

  7. It would definitely start tipping the scales for me.

  8. She almost talked ME into buying her a phone. I don't even know you guys (although I just found your blog this morning and I've spent a good 45 minutes reading back posts, so I feel like I know you) and she had me at the pie graph.
