Unlimited Mobile to Mobile Family Plan, Please.

I think this little video clip is a glimpse into our future…or not.

Hold the phone! I can’t even imagine how much a 6 line Family Plan, mobile to mobile, unlimited texting, unlimited minutes, and whatever new technology that will be added by 2021 will cost per month. Almost a guarantee to be over our budget, unless we forego groceries.     

Maybe if we get this sharing thing down, 1 phone will be plenty to go between the 4 of them. (Insert boisterous obnoxious laughter by all the moms to teenagers.)

Well for today, we’ll stick to our retired phone collection. Yes, we do recycle our ancient cell phones (via our children).  Reduce, REUSE, Recycle, right?

By the way, when daddy is in charge pants are optional with thermals. =)

    Hi! One day I stumbled across your blog while looking for a choo choo wagon. I was very interested because we have the same last name and because you have multiples! I have twins that are 2, boy and girl, and an 11 month old boy. I completed understand about your “D” post which is kinda funny and the whole cell phone dilema when they get older! Any-who, you have a beautiful family and it is always wonderful for me to interact with other mothers of multiples!

    I loved watching the boys and hearing their chatter. They are looking so much older.

    Our babies love playing with our old cell phone too.

    ps For the record, I have three teenagers and we refuse to get them their own cell phones and we have one house line. of course, our phone is always being used, day & night, but they deal because they have no other choice 🙂
    Don't you worry!

    Just in case…did you know that you can still dial 911 on a retired phone? My niece did it several times by playing with one and the police tracked the call and showed up!

    How cute are they. I love your table and chairs, can you share where they came from?

    So cute 🙂

    It doesn’t matter who is in charge here, clothing is always optional in my twins’ eyes. I always worry that they are cold, but I try to just see the benefit of quicker getting to the potty.

    Atleast it will be no big deal when yours undress and switch clothes with eachother, it’s another story though when you have mixed gender multiples 🙁

    Too cute!!! Just make sure, like the other poster said, that those phones have no batteries or the batteries are not charged. I work for 911 and you wouldn’t believe how many calls we get like that a day!!

    Hi! I’ve never commented on your blog, but I read it often and have it linked on my blog. Your boys are just precious, and I love reading about your adorable family! I have a 17 month old little girl, and whenever she’s fussy, my no-fail solution for cheering her up is showing her a video on your blog. 🙂 She immediately quiets down and just stares at them—it’s so cute!

    KMurray – Too wild!

    Laurie and Anon – They are all battery free, but thanks for the wise suggestion! =)

    Stacey – I wish I could tell you where it originated, but we got it at a garage sale from a homeschool family. 5 chairs plus the table for $30. We LOVE it!

    They have definitely got the idea of how people talk on the phone, even if they don’t know the words! Best wishes to all the family.
