What is that expression? “The best laid plans may not always work.” Yeah, that’s the one.
Saturday’s plan seemed doable. I could foresee a problem or two, but I had a bunch of contingency plans. I was sure I could handle it. How could I have been so wrong?
Saturday was a tough schedule day for us. What could have been a lovely Saturday playing in the yard and relaxing, was anything but relaxing. You see Saturday the tween and teen BOTH had volleyball tournaments in two different counties.
My husband and I divided and conquered. I took the teen to the Discovery Center in Germantown, MD, a multiple use sports center and park area. My husband took the tween to Charles County, MD, a 2-hour drive from us. Two kids + two parents = doing two events works. But, I have a 6-year-old. He loves sports…when he is playing them. He is not so much a fan of watching sports.
After about 1 hour at the teen’s tournament…he was bored. My bag of games, coloring books, and toys was not exciting him. What to do?
Bring out the Verizon Palm Pre Plus cellphone! I opened YouTube. Showed him how to type in “kid action movies.” He watched clips from the Transformers, Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and many more. I knew that YouTube drains the battery of even a 3G smartphone, but my son was happy. As my son was happy, I was able to watch the teen’s volleyball team win their first game of the day. Woohoo! Verizon Palm Pre Plus saved my day!
I was given the Verizon Palm Pre Plus phone and one-month’s service as part of my review.
