I've recently delved into the world of Dave Ramsey and his "Total Money Makeover." It got me thinking about all sorts of things, especially the future and what finances will be like when we get there. One question that popped into my mind was: What am I going to do about our kids wanting cell phones? It's not a question of If they will want a cell phone, I bought my first cell phone when I was thirteen, it's a question of When they will want a cell phone. This thought process got me looking around online trying to see what options are out there that wouldn't make a huge dent in our budget. Some people might think I'm crazy for wanting to buy my kids cell phones, but I'm a worrier, I know for a fact I will want to be able to get a hold of them wherever they are. Though, I do also know all too well all of the dangers of giving a child a cell phone. This is why I was absolutely Thrilled when I found Kajeet. Kajeet is a prepaid cell phone provider that specializes in making phones for kids. Their phones come packed with every parental control you could ever want on your child's phone. You can make their phone not work while they are in class at school and at night, put a limit on their texting, block numbers you don't like, and best of all, put a sensor on the websites they can view.
Everybody says that the first year of marriage is the hardest to get through. I thought for sure that was ridiculous and that our first year would be Perfect, but it turned out, we were not exempt. Matt's and my first year was an absolute roller coaster. Here's our story:
Matt and I met just a few weeks before his senior prom in high school. Ironically enough, my best friend was his date. I was asked by a friend of his which put us in the same group. A few short weeks after prom he asked me out and we started dating. Matt and I dated for a year. It was a rocky year with lots of break ups and getting back together. Through it all though we fell in love. Three months before I graduated from high school Matt asked me to marry him. Crazy right? Even crazier, I said yes. The world would tell you our marriage was doomed to fail from the moment it started, but I never did like being a part of the norm.
