Kids Have A Mind Of Their Own

Today our daughter decided she wanted to go out in the back yard and attempt to get a tan.  I told her that the sun is on vacation right now, and a tan would only be possible if she went to something like a sunless tanning booths.  She got very upset with me, and returned to trying.

A little later on we noticed one of our daughters friends walking around in a bathing suit top.  Well… I wonder if she fell out of a tree when she was younger because it is May, and the weather may be nice for the day, but far from summer weather.  She proceeded to tell us that her pool was open.  I can’t imagine how anyone in New Jersey could have their pool open yet.  The nights still get rather cold.

Am I behind the times, or do people sometimes do absolutely brilliant things?

Something My Daughter Could Do

My daughter has one friend that comes over from time to time.  When she comes over she usually brings her guitar.  My daughter seems like she is interested in the guitar, but never actually admits it to us.  We would love nothing more than if our little one wanted to learn something that could occupy her time rather than the computer, or phone.

We have gotten her into soccer, but that is where she draws the line.  If you wanted your child to do something like learn guitar how would you go about doing it?

No Way Sprint. Keep Your IPhone.

Now that Sprint has released the IPhone we have toying with the idea of allowing our daughter to change out her phone for one.  What I didn’t know was a lot of information that my mother gave me the other day.  From my understanding the IPhone requires a special protection plan, and on top of that when something goes wrong with one then you need to take it back to a Apple store.

This has caused me to rethink the entire situation.  I have enough nightmares with the Sprint store in Brick, NJ.  I don’t feel that I should be getting a phone from Sprint, and having to take it to another retailer for servicing when necessary.

This is direct from the Sprint site…

$99 for 2 years Applecare.

-Includes 2 accidental repairs & $49 service fee on top of each of those 2.

The original situation came because my daughter wanted a IPod Touch 16gb.  This was only because her friends have IPod Touch units.  She has an Android phone.  It does everything that an IPod does.  I just don’t understand the mind of my child.
