Yesterday I took the day off because I wasn’t feeling quite well. Justin was already home due to being off from school. He was happy to that I was home and getting some rest. However, I had a little surprise for him. For weeks he’s been wanting to upgrade his phone. I’m not the follow the trend kind of mom. I’m the mom that you need to show me you can be responsible and take care of expensive things kind of mom. Well he’s had his iPhone 4 for two years. He’s never broken his phone. He left it at grandma’s house a few times. He even unknowingly dropped it out his pocket on the school playground. As soon as he got him he called me an told me he couldn’t find it. However, he remembered I have the share my location on both our iPhones. I was able to find his phone from my phone. He was so happy that I track him now. Yes I like to keep tabs on my kid. Well back to the story. So he’s done a good job as far as keeping the phone in great condition. Not bad for a teenager.
As I’m laying in the bed I get a text alert that my package is arriving in 30 minutes. I don’t have packages delivered to my house. I get them delivered to my moms. So I rushed in Justin’s room interrupted his game time and said let’s go to grandma’s hurry up. He looks at me and says ” okay”. He looks puzzled. He didn’t ask questions but his face said he wanted to. He normally asks a million questions but he didn’t. I kept going in and out of his room rushing him as if it was an emergency that we had to get to grandma’s. He’s taking his sweet old time. He finally comes out his room and says ” I’m ready” with an aggravated look. In the back of my mind I’m laughing because he’s going to be yelling me praises in about 30 minutes. It’s takes me about 20 minutes to get to my mom’s house.
We arrive and the box is at my moms front door. He says ” oh grandma has a package”. I said well open the door so you can give her, her package ( we have the keys to her place). My mom wasn’t home at the time. Justin’s now looking at me like why are we here. I asked him to give me the box. He hands it to me as I’m sitting down and I begin opening it. He’s looking at me and he’s like “what are you doing”. I said opening grandma’s package. He again looked puzzle. He sat beside me listening to his old iPhone. I opened the box and pulled out his new iPhone and handed it to him. He looked at me and his face was priceless. No I didn’t get it in camera but I have his face stored in my memory. He smiled for the rest of the night all the way up until this morning. He thanked and hugged me about 100 times. Making him happy is what makes me happy… Anything to see him smile.
He’s the first kid with the iPhone 7 at his school and he’s loving it.
