We Want to Know Wednesday

Welcome to We Want to Know Q&A Wednesday
Hosted by Mamarazzi and Alicia aka Queso


{1}Do you prefer to text or call?
It depends. I usually make phone calls. There are a few people that I primarily text but most people I just call. It also depends on what we are communicating. It if will take too long to text, I just call them.

{2}What is the last text message in your phone and who is it from?

My friend, Michelle. She was wondering when they will be doing kindergarten assessments on our kids. I honestly had no clue. Not much help. (Can you believe my big boy will be going to school?!?!  I go to an orientation tomorrow and P will start school on the 6th. Where did the time go?)

{3}What are your favorite phone apps?

The most used app is the Facebook app. It is faster than using the browser. I honestly don't have too many apps. My phone doesn't have much memory for storage. :-(  I do have the LDS Gospel Library which is awesome. I have access to all the scriptures, general conference talks, magazines, manuals, music, and other stuff!. I also use the WeatherBug app. It keeps me up to date on the weather in my community. It even sends me alerts when there is a wind advisory or whatever.

{4}At what age do you think kids are ready for a cell phone?

That is a hard one. I didn't get one until I entered into college and I had to pay for it by myself. I think 15 or 16 is a good age. I also think kids should pay for it themselves or at least half of the bill. My parents never bought big things for me. They made me pay for them myself. I, of course, hated it at the time but I am extremely grateful. It helped me appreciate things more and respect the items more.

{5}Share a current pic or video taken with your phone.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not very crafty. Luckily, my friend, Collete, is helping me explore my inner-woman. ;-)  She taught me how to make this headband. All it is is fabric, a button, and a knee high nylon sock! :-)  We made several for a friend who is having a baby girl!

I am a raspberry addict. If it has raspberries in it, I will knock children over try very hard to get it. I made raspberry freezer jam a couple weeks ago. YUM!

I proclaim that I have the most handsome two-year-old on the planet! LOVE THIS KID!
By the way, any hints on how to handle the Terrible Two's?!?!?!  This kid can turn on a dime. He is the epitome of Jekyll and Hyde.

We kinda do the same thing with our kids and big purchases. We did buy them their phone for birthdays, though neither of them have a very fancy or expensive phone. But they've both had to save for their own ipods and my oldest bought her own laptop.

He is a cutie!

I LOVE the LDS Gospel Library! I need to update what is in mine, but we never take our scriptures to church with us now. Just take our phones. Wish I had an iPad! But then everyone would see when checked my new email or twitter. lol!

I love that head band! You give me hope that I could be a little crafty. And I don't believe your sweet little boy could be Jekyll and Hyde. He is much too cute!
