Just 2, Thank You.

We have this very cool phone that lets you program in a phone number that a child can then dial to get a message that you record.

I got this for Sam's birthday a couple years ago, wrote our phone number on it, and recorded, "Happy Birthday, Sam!" to play when he dialed in the number. Jack has been playing with the phone and this morning I heard him repeating a string of numbers that sounded an awful lot like our phone number.

And lo and behold, it was! Success! A toy that teaches what it is supposed to teach!

Of course, nothing is as simple as it seems. When I asked him about it, Jack told me that the number was Sam's phone number.

What, you may be curious to know, is Jack's phone number, according to Jack?

Two.

So if he gets lost and needs to tell someone his phone number, he will be able to get to me, but only if the person who finds him is savvy enough to ask what his big brother's phone number is. Otherwise they're going to have a hell of a time trying to get in touch with me by dialing 2.
