THAT'S ALL HE NEEDS...

Another gadget! My oldest son got his birthday gift a little early this year! He's been wanting the IPod Touch for about a month, so we decided he could get it now. He's been saving his money and he told my husband the other day that he had $106 to go toward it. That is basically half of what it costs, so, we told him, "Okay!" But, we surprised him by getting him the next model up which holds twice as much information on it. It's so cool because it is exactly like an IPhone minus the phone! It's literally like a mini lap top! Oh..and get this, my MAC needed to upgrade in order for his IPod to sync with it so I thought I had to buy new software (which is another $100), but I thought, "Hmm...I wonder if it will work on our other computer which runs Windows XP?" Sure enough it did. I just uploaded ITunes on that puter and it was good to go. My son was practically jumping up and down!

so glad he got his phone. My daughter has one but she doesn't like hers she is looking to trade hers in. I may take hers but I am not great with touchy feely things, you know I'm not so much of a touchy feely person. LOL

My son thinks we should just buy him one with him saving anything for it. Maybe I will make him read this post and he will see that I am not the meanest mom in the world. Other parents make thier kids save up money too!

I am soo jealous! My 4GB Ipod is soo old school and it still looks brand new so as Dave Ramsey would say....no need to upgrade ;) Although...if your son would let me borrow his, I would be exstatic!!! =)

What a great gift! Your fam is beautiful!

Laura said...

Oh, boy! My husband bought one probably a month or so ago. And he loves it!!! Some days I can't get him off of it. I bought a box of poptarts the other day and inside the box we won a $10 giftcard to Itunes! My husband used that thing up immediately!!! LOL. Your son will love his. What a great gift!

Susie said...

That's really cool that he was able to save that much! I would have kicked in the rest and upgraded too! You rock as parents!!
