So my daughter wants a mobile phone

This morning, like most Fridays, I take my daughters to breakfast before school (the boy hangs at home with mom. No preschool on Fridays)

My oldest is now 10. And these days she is selling me hard on why she wants a phone.

This morning was no different.

I’m not ready to give her one yet. And i gave her my reasons.

Then she asked “dad, when did you get your first phone?”

I replied, “I didn’t get one until I was 22”

She laughed “hey, tell me the truth!”

I say “I am. Really”

She pipes back “I’m gonna ask grandma when she first bought you a phone”

I then say “look, Sophia, they didn’t even have cell phones when I was your age”

Her reply – “no way”
