Remember that as a teenager you are at the last stage in your life when you will be happy to hear that the phone is for you.

Well, we did something we will probably end up regretting – we purchased a cell phone for DramaQueen for Christmas. We’ve been thinking about it for some time now. I’ve been wavering between her being too young and wishing she had one with her when she is at functions without me or HH. One thing good about it, we can use it as a disciplinary tool, e.g. we can take it away from her if her behavior is not acceptable. Sigh. I think mainly I am just not prepared for the teenage years that are rapidly approaching our doorstep. It means that I am getting older and that is something that I am not ready to accept at all.
