It's a conversation all parents will have -- it's only a matter of when. It starts with "Puleeeeeeze! All my friends have one!" Kids -- all kids -- want one, badly. The target of their desires, of course, is the ubiquitous, must-have cell phone.
Verbal conversations remain a part of our lives, even if they're a smaller part than they used to be. I am sad for my sons that they will never have this kind of interaction. But I know they won't miss something they never had. Only I will.
