Is your phone always with you?

by Wench on February 12, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Inspired by a phone-call I received hours ago and only just noticed. I used to have my phone by my side at all times, but I guess since around the time my son started scooting, I've found myself leaving it somewhere to chase after him. Hours later, I'd remember to go look for it and I'll have three missed calls and a text from my husband wondering why I hadn't answered the phone!

Now that his naps are becoming fewer and farther, it's even worse. The other morning I left my cellphone by my bed - Little Man played with it (locked), it fell behind the bed and I remembered it in time to plug it in before going to sleep for the night.

Whew! Is your cellphone always by your side or does it hang out elsewhere from time to time?
