I often hear from Moms that they are suffering from dumb phone syndrome. I can't help but to commiserate with them, as I too am among the dumb phone ranks. Although my cute, little Reclaim is a glorious shade of green, both in hue and in construction, cute is simply not cutting it. From issues with speed, functionality and blasted memory restrictions, staying connected is more of a hindrance than this Mommy's "little helper".
As a true Mommy Martyr, the first smart upgrades in our family were lovingly bestowed on the kids, enabling them to carry their cells fearlessly, without worry of taunting or teasing from being so far behind the technological ideal. Meanwhile, this Mom has been suffering from dumb phone syndrome in silence, but no more!
