Celebrating has begun....

Britt's birthday is not actually until Monday, but around here we seem to celebrate for a week!

The kick off was her party with her friends last night. It was a highschool musical/karaoke party.

She chose to get her big present from us last night...which was a cell phone. I had swore I wasn't going to do that till she was 12, but there have been several instances lately where it would have been handy, dropping off for choir, basketball, and sleepovers so we went ahead and got one...with lots of parent control! She got lots of things and was spoiled rotten...of course.

Some of the kids didn't want to sing so of course I had to get up there! Fortunately there are no pics, unfortunately there is video...of well the kids all had fun I think.

Here are some pics and I am putting more in flickr.

My 13 yo has had a cell phone since he was 10 yo. It has been nothing but a GOOD thing for us!!!!

I get tired of people when they hear my kid has a phone say "dont you think hes too young or oh my that is a huge expense blah blah.

Umm it only costs me $10 more dollars a month on my cell plan and if a kid is responsible enough at ANY age then give them a phone.

It gives me peace of mind as a parent!

Happy b-day Britt!

Looks like she had a great time. And hey our kids need spoiled at times LOL. If it gives you piece of mind then age for a cell phone doesn't really matter. Sounds like you did it right too with Parental control! Now a day's with what's been going around it the world it's a good thing to have for kids!
