Bud: (showing me his piggy bank) Mom, do you see all the money in here?
Me: Yeah, that’s a lot of
Bud: I’m going to save all my money to buy a smart phone.
Bud: Yeah, smart phones are so cool!
Me: What do you know about smart phones?
Bud: You can play games on them and make phone calls! They are SO COOL! It’s like your iPod but only better!
Me: (mumbling under my breathe) You’re 5!!
Me: And are you going to get a job to pay for the monthly data package charge?
Bud: But Mom, I already have jobs! I am a police man, a farmer, and a doctor! Don't you remember? (oh, how I wish I could show you how he talked with his hands while he was saying this! No doubt, he has Italian blood!)
Me: You are too young for a phone, especially a smart phone.
Bud: Well, when can I get one? When I’m 6?
Me: When you are a parent you can buy a smart phone.Lily
