The phone was not for me. 

It was for my daughter. 

She is six.

She said, "Anna wanted to know what I wanted to play on when we meet at the park tomorrow."

Oh brother. 

She even put the phone to her wet ear (she was still in the tub).

She gets called per day now about as much as a Muslim prays toward Mecca.

I hear that friars also pray. And they have cells.

it's a female thing, not an age thing!

I well remember when my own daughter started getting phone calls - at about the same age as yours. It's a very strange feeling to realize that they are starting to have a life apart from us, isn't it? And this is only the beginning.

maybe you should hook her up with BlueTooth?

My nine year old gets about 3 phone calls a day. That's more than I get in a week. lol

It doesn't surprise me, but I didn't realize that our modern life is getting so complicated today that kids feel the need to plan out their next day's play strategy (ha ha ha -- just joking).

Actually, maybe I should have done that as a kid -- called my friends to discuss the next day's play. We might have gotten more done. ("Hello, Bill? Okay, let's talk about tomorrow. When we get to the playground, how about you start scoping out a good girl target while I find a frog? We'll put it down her dress, and then maybe we'll eat some dirt. What kind of dirt? Uh, let me do some research and get back to you.")

That's about the age when my daugters started getting phone calls from friends.
It's a lot of fun to listen to the stuff they talk about.
When they're 13 and boy crazy it's not really that fun to listen in.

Is that right? My kids never get calls. What does it mean? Are my kids not popular?
