If you know me, you know how annoying my cell phone situation is. I have somewhat of a reputation for not answering my phone. Let's discuss this. First of all, I see my cell phone as a convenience for me. I've never been one to carry it around and jump when it rings and answer it at all costs. I like to have it so I can get the job done (whatever the job might be) but I do not like to just shoot the breeze. I dont like to be on the phone for longer than like 5 minutes at a time. I think 5 minutes is totally sufficient to communicate messages and take care of business. Anything beyond that tends to get fluffy and unnecessary, in my opinion. I'll admit that I'm also a screener. I dont screen because I dont want to talk to YOU; I screen because I dont want to talk on the phone at that moment. I choose to call you or text you back at a more convenient moment. (Am I losing friends as I type this?!) And then there's the issue of my cell phone always being broken... or lost.
So I'm genuinely curious if I'm alone in all of this. Am I the only one with these phone issues?How do other mothers keep their phones with them, and out of their child's drooly mouth, at all times? How do you answer and carry on a conversation when your 3 year old is talking your ear off and your baby is pulling on your pant leg to be picked up? I'm serious here. Give me your wisdom.
