Today I realized that I have imposed expectations on my children that I am not meeting. It has to do with telephone numbers.
We’ve coached, drilled, and practiced with them my wife and my cell phone numbers. They have them down and could tell you what they are even if you woke them in the middle of the night.
I, on the other hand, couldn’t tell you what their numbers are. Their numbers are in my phone but not committed to memory. You see, we dropped our home phone years ago. It’s been cheaper for everyone to have their own cellphone.
I have all my contacts backed up to Google but if my phone were to die unexpectedly I’d need internet access to get the phone numbers of anyone I’d want to call.
I’ve made it my own personal homework assignment this week to memorize their numbers.
What about you? Do you have the important numbers you might need to call memorized?
