My little girl is growing up. And as much as I have fought it, she wants a cell phone. "Everyone in my grade practically has one but me!" gasp. I know....
Who am I kidding? Every kid in America is growing up with a cell phone in their hand. She already knows how to use mine, sometimes better than I do! As she gets busier and more involved, it becomes easier to keep in touch with us if she has one.
I have spent a few weeks researching what options are out there for kids. I want reliability, but most importantly, affordability too. Matt & I both have smart phones, but I just don't think my child needs to have a $300 phone in her hand with complete access to the internet. So we picked out this simple phone with So many features that she loves, like these:

TracFone is the perfect option! TracFone is the least expensive way to own a cell phone these days.
Sissy picked out a simple phone "perfect for texting" and I picked out a GREAT plan - one that doesn't lock me into a contract. I can pay as I go or sign up for a low cost monthly plan. There are no activation fees or cancelation fees.
TracFone seems to be the best option to start my young one out - I can limit the amount of time she gets to talk or text each month. She doesn't need to have unlimited access, so a low minutes plan that I can pay as I go is perfect.
Take a look at these Real TracFone customers:

Gosh, now that she has a cell phone, what's next? Dropping her off at the mall? A Driver's License? College??? Let's hope they are all as easy as buying a cell phone was!
