This is an odd blog posting to interrupt my lengthy silence, but maybe I’ll get better about it.
Got elementary kids? I do, and no, he doesn’t have a cell phone. Won’t for a long time. We have a Wii, though. One admittedly mundane but cool feature is the ability to send and receive e-mail with it. My son is never out of the living room for long when he’s home. If I am away and want to just drop him a line, he notices the blue Wii e-mail flash pretty readily, and knows how to reply.
Doesn’t happen often but it is nice when I need it.
