My 4 year old has an iPhone....GET OVER IT!

Posted by   + Show Post

 Well, it's really an Android.

My mom upgraded hers and gave DS the old one. Everything is deactivated but he can still play games and download them when WiFi is activated.

LOL some of the looks I get when I inadvertantly tell people something like "DS' phone...". I get the death stare like, "OMG, WHY does your 4 year old have a phone." I have to explain it.

I've had a few stares in public but I rarely allow it in public unless I know we're going to be in a certain place for a long time.

 

What is something people look at you crazy for, that your children have or have told them about?

Lol. We don't pay attention like that. You sound slightly self absorbed that others would be so focused on you.

Eh, my 5 and 7 year old have an iPhone 3GS and 4. We upgraded, they don't have cell service, and we have it on lockdown. They listen to music (kidz bop) and play games.

Our 13, 12, 4, and 3 year old all have their own laptops.  The little oens have Chromebook and the older one have Dells.  

We have two TVs hanging on our living room wall with two X-boes connected to them.  I get a lot of coments over that.

They really do! I thought at first my nephew was just playing around on his mom's phone and went to take it from him.  SIL said "no that's his (her old one)...he knows what to do."  And he did!  I was shocked...he knew how to unlock, pick the game he wanted and away he went. 

I'm still figuring out my galaxy almost a year after getting it lol.

I think people look at you like you're crazy when you say those things because they're used to raising their kids instead of providing an electronic babysitter for them.
