Ahhh, Christmas has come and gone already. I honestly can’t believe it’s over! I must say, one of the things I was most excited about on Christmas day was gearing up to give my dad his awesome gift. I wrote about giving my dad his first smartphone from Walmart mobile in November. Plus, I’m giving him three months of free phone service!
The phone sat in the top of my pantry just waiting to be opened and admired! I was a little nervous with what my dad’s reaction would be. My parents have both been talking about upgrading their old-fashioned flip phones for forever! I think new technology is a little bit intimidating for them. But I was ready to assure my dad that I would help him get it all set up.
Christmas with my parents happens in the afternoon after lunch. When all the kiddos are taking a nap the adults finally get to open their presents.
I told my dad to wait to open my present until the very end. He didn’t have a clue what was going on . . .
Still confused until I told him to open the lid so he could see the product
Finally realizing what it is . . .
and there’s the excitement! So fun to watch him put two and two together!
My whole family was asking about what kind of phone it was and they were all really excited about him getting a new, updated smartphone from Walmart Family Mobile. I told my mom that if everything works out and my dad enjoys it that we’ll go back to Walmart and get her one too. I didn’t want her to feel left out!
I’m also really happy to be able to save them some money. This is a cheap wireless plan with no contract and I think my parents will see how much money they save by switching to this service instead of their current provider.
I know being able to do this for my dad made Christmas that much more special! I feel like it’s a fun gift but also very practical as well! I can’t wait to see him using it and then hopefully teaching my mom to use hers soon.
