My son who has a Wii a game cube a tablet and a 3ds is now saying he needs an iPhone.
Let me say this, the Wii he got when it first came out years ago. For his birthday the tablet he got 3 years ago for Christmas the 3ds he got this past Christmas. The game cube is mine. But he plays it. He'd like to spend every waking moment playing games but we only allow him an hour or two every few days.
Now, he's wanting an iPhone for the games he can play on it... And my mother keeps telling us that she is getting him one when its time to renew her contract. Dh and I have put our foot down over it and refused to allow it. An 8 year old with a cell phone is insane. He doesn't know how to text and even if he did, the only people he could text were myself dh and my mom as none of his friends have a cell phone. Dh and my mom got into a spat about it the other day because she continues to insist she WILL be getting him a phone and we are saying we will not accept it.
She says he needs a way to call her. Um OK we have a house phone her number is programmed in it. All he has to do is find it and hit the call button. And dh and I both have cell phones. Sorry mom but I win this one. My 8 year old does not need an iPhone!
