We now have a new home phone. My daughter thinks that it is her phone. When it rings, she will surely answer it unless she is glued into something more exciting like her puzzle or her other toys. Most of the time though, she answers the phone. She can now dial her Nana's number too.
My daughter is like my personal telephone answering service. She is so cute when she will say, "Hello, who is this?"
We opted to buy the basic phone for our home phone. In fact, we bought the cheapest unit because we really don't need to have caller id, answering machine or anything else. We are used to conducting phone calls with our mobile so having a home phone is just there because it is free from my internet service.
