Abby Gets a SMART PHONE!


– I think today might be the day. – [All chanting] Do it and you’re cool. Do it and you’re cool. Come on. Do it and you’re cool. Do it and you’re cool. – No, oh my…. – Uh yeah. (laughing) – We’re going to get this phone for you, but then we’re going to give it to me by switching sim cards. So she gets this phone,
and then I get this one. (fingers clicking) – Why can’t I just have
the better phone than him? – Because I’m older and I have
more experience with phones. (engine revving) (wheels screeching) (upbeat music) – [Woman] Is this the first
time you’ve done scrambled eggs? – Um, yes. – [Woman] Good job. – Whoa, that’s cool. – [Woman] Okay they’re all
done, you can eat them. – What? They’re so gooey. – [Woman] Just kidding. (upbeat music) – [Woman] Okay, put a
big bite in your mouth Julie, that’s ridiculous. – I can taste so much syrup. – [Woman] Just put it
in your mouth and eat. – It’s so gross. – [Abby] It’s all going to the same place. – [Woman] Julie does
not want to eat her eggs because, she has syrup on them. Would you eat your eggs,
if syrup touched it? I feel like a 3 year old, maybe? I think syrup on eggs
is actually really good. And they call it maple sausage. Because some people really
like the maple syrup touching their sausage. (crickets chirping) Come on, eat it up. I just need you to eat some protein. – I can’t eat it. – [Abby] Gimme her spot, I’ll
put some more eggs on it. – [Woman] I don’t want you
to waste any more of those. Eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it. Come on you guys, cheer for Julie.
– I can see the syrup. I can see the syrup, look! – [Abby] Close your eyes and shove it in. – Look at it. [Woman] It looks delicious. It looks heavenly. – It was the cinnamon syrup. – [Woman] Okay, come on, you can do this. Julie, Julie, Julie – [Woman And Child] Julie, Julie. – [All chanting] Do it and you’re cool, do it and you’re cool. – [Woman] Come on! – [All Chanting] Do it and you’re cool Do it and you’re cool, Julie, Julie, – [Woman] Come on! – Open your mouth. – No, oh my – Um, yeah. (all laughing) – [Woman] Oh my gosh. – [Man] You’re gonna stab her. – [Woman] No I’m fine. – She’s fine.
– Well now you just made her cry. – [Woman] All right Julie you
don’t have to eat any eggs. All right all right you
don’t have to eat the eggs. – [Girl] If I cried every
time I didn’t want to eat seafood
– Shh, you be quiet. You be quiet. You traumatized her with that fork! – [Girl] I didn’t hurt her. – I didn’t say you hurt her. But I’d be traumatized. Hey! I think today might be the day. (phone message sounds) In a meeting. (upbeat music) No one’s answering their phones today! Serenity now. – We braided our hair together. Well Rose did. – Yeah. – [Woman] Come here! Oh my gosh. – Rip! – This is my bestest friend Emily. – I thought I was your bestest friend. – And this is my other best friend Rose. She’s the one that braided our hair. – You can’t see Rose,
Rose has pretty hair. – And the reason why we
braided our hair together is because that’s how me
and Emily became friends. – It’s true. Also we just wanted to do it again. – So how about we do the honors? – Uh yes Rose. Do the honors. Waaa. – Bye. See you later. – See ya. – [Woman] Bye girls. Abby! – [Boy] Abby you almost
smashed my fingers! – Sorry. – I missed pizza thingy. – [Woman] Oh honey you did miss it. – Mrs Bigelow, She’s gonna give
me an extra pizza on Monday so I’ll have four pizzas. – Good Good good. (upbeat music) – When I found out that
Abby was getting an iPhone. I bet a lot of you thought
that I was gonna be mad because I didn’t get an
iPhone when I was 12. It turns out I was actually
like, really happy. – He was like yay you’re getting a phone. – I’m really happy for her. And we’re going to go get hers right now. And I’m gonna help her set it up and I’m gonna go help her get stuff that she wants on it and yeah, it’s gonna be a lot of fun so… I’m actually happy for her. I’m not sad even though I
would loved this one at age 12. But remember, she’s a lot
more mature than I was at 12. Yeah. – [Woman] Chad you’re not supposed to wear that jacket until family pictures. – Well I was going for the
bleached theme today so all white. – [Woman] All white. Don’t get it dirty because those … that’s a special jacket
only for family pictures. – But, it looks sick. (rock music) – You guys do not know what a relief it is to know I’m not gonna have
to deal with upset feelings. Chad, I’m very glad that
you’re happy for her. – [Chad] Mm hm. – One of the interesting conversations that YouTube has brought to my attention, this was back when we
had comments enabled, was how do you treat each
child fairly or equal? And my answer has always been that each child is so different, and
their needs are so different that I treat them differently
based on what their needs are. And Chad’s needs when he was 12 and 13 were very, very unique for him. And Abby’s needs, right
now are very unique to her. So the way I parent them
and their privileges are not, the same. (upbeat music) – [Woman] Hey you again! (laughter) You remember us. We’re here for a phone for Abby, and my husband said the Iphone
X is on sale for like… – [Sales Assistant] The regular ten right? – For 300 dollars off, is that right? – Yup. – Yeah! The ten. This is newer than the
one I have which is the X. – Yeah so it’s the same phone, they just upgraded the internal parts. – [Chad] They just upgraded the camera And this as well.
– Okay. – Yeah it’s like one megapixel. – [Woman] And this is the iPhone 8. And this is, – [Chad] The ten – [Woman] I am so slow. – [Chad] For their 10 year anniversary. – This has been explained
to me so many times and I just can’t, I just
can’t fit it in here. Okay, so we thought that
there was a big promotion and we missed it by one day. We were wrong. (laughs) – You’re gonna get this phone. This is the iPhone XR. This one is a litter better than this one. So, we’re gonna get this phone for you. But then we’re gonna give it to me by switching SIM cards. so she gets this phone and I get this one. See? – Why can’t I just have
a better phone than him? – Because I’m older and I have
more experience with phones and yeah, so… – So how ’bout after I
have experience with it we switch it back? – No we’re not switching back and forth. Look, this is a really good phone okay. See? – [Woman] Red This one is crazy. – [Abby] It’s like a blood red. So cool. – [Chad] Here gimme that. – [Woman] I love that color. – [Abby] So what is that? – [Chad] This is your phone number. And all your information and everything you want and need. – [Woman] What’s the matter, Abby? Did this poop you out? Does getting a new phone make you tired? – No. – [Woman] Chad I want you to listen. You are responsible for
watching out for your sister. And taking care of her. – Yes. – [Woman] Yes. You are responsible for
taking care of your brother. – [Chad] Wait, wait, wait, what? – [Woman] You have a
responsibility to each other. To communicate with each other and to text each other and to, hey checking up on you,
you look sad today. you guys… Yeah? – [Chad] Yeah. – [Woman] Yes, you use your phones to drive home that relationship. It’s a tradition that we go get a cookie after you get a cell phone. – Really? – It is, it’s a tradition. Turning 12 is a big age. All of our kids when
they turn 12 get what? You don’t have a choice in the matter. You have to start being
trained on finances so what is it that you need? – Chequing account? – Chequing account. (reflective music) – If you guys wanna see
