Monday afternoon Nick and I took the boys to two stores they’d never been to before: PetSmart and Best Buy. No, we aren’t buying a pet but we thought the boys would enjoy looking at all of the animals and fish. We were right – they loved it!
Next door to PetSmart is Best Buy, so we ventured over there to look at new phones for Nick and me. While our data was being transferred to our new, sweet, free phones (because you know we’re too cheap to pay for anything) the boys were having a ball looking around Best Buy. Probably their favorite part of the trip though was when one of the employees handed each of the boys an older model cell phone to play with. Better yet, the boys were told they could keep their new phones!
On the way home the boys sat in their seats happily playing with their new phones, saying “hello”, talking to various family members and pushing the buttons. Several times Nick turned around to talk to the boys and got zero response. I finally told him to get used to it, because in 14 years or so they’d be in the back of the car texting (or using whatever the cool form of communication is then) and not wanting to talk to their parents.
