Having a cell phone is like having a baby that never grows up. The phone demands immediate attention through various little sounds and you, and only you, understand the meaning. You keep it by your side wherever you go and get nervous if it is gone for a second. Like a new baby, phones are exciting and add so much goodness to family life. They are infatuating and make us all smile. And there is something about that phone that draws you to it, even when you want a break from it.
Like a new baby, your other children compete with your phone for attention.
