After school, as my children ate their popcorn for snack, they were coloring. They were being really sweet and talkative. I was in and out of the kitchen. I would spend a few minutes talking to them and then take care of a chore that needed attending to.
Suddenly, through listening to their conversation and observing their artwork, it became apparent what they were so attentively coloring.

As we drove to choir practice this afternoon, Mary Frances made phone calls the entire time. Stephen packed his art supplies so he could finish his case while Mary Frances was singing. So much for Curious George or homework. Instead I closed my eyes for a few minutes and boy did it feel good!
I have recently gotten a new phone and I think they are more into my phone than I am.
This is what I get for bringing home these really cool name tags from Frank's office party a couple of weekends ago.
Oh well, at least they are getting along and being creative! Yes, they are made from magnetic name tags.
As for when they are getting a cell phone ~ not for a very long time. Like I said you are only 7 and younger!
