How to Miss a Life

Update 5/16/12:  It was brought to  my attention that I forgot to link the article!  Sorry!  You can read the article at the link below.

I read this article the other day, and it was SUCH a good reminder for me!!

I'm not one to be on my phone very much out in public.  I might send a quick text if it's really important, but I'm not surfing the internet or anything.  I don't play online games and hate phones at the dinner table.  I have to admit that I felt pretty good when I first started reading the article!

Then I got to the part about checking your email and getting mad when your child interrupts you.

Or when she mentions using car time to make phone calls instead of talking to your child.  (I have Blue Tooth through my car, so it makes it very convenient to get phone calls out of the way.)

Spanked.

While I absolutely must have a phone with me in case something happens with Abby, I am really going to work on using other electronics when the kids or awake.  I'm also going to try to have more meaningful conversations with Caleb in the car.

So those are my technology goals.  Did this article inspire you to change anything about your technology use?
