Jenny turned 11 on Wednesday. And her main gift from us (besides the fun party tomorrow night with her friends) was her first cell phone. Now I know that when she asked us to give her a phone about 6 months ago, I said no because I didn’t think it was necessary yet, and I’d always said she wouldn’t get one before she turned 11 and was ready to head to middle school. I gave it a lot of thought over the last month and decided she’s ready. She seems mature enough and she understands the rules she’s been given. And if she breaks them? The phone will be taken away. Plus now I have perks like being able to call her when she’s downstairs and I’m upstairs and we don’t want to wake up the baby by yelling. We all win.
