Share all the moments, big and small, with unlimited data from Walmart #FamilyMobile

See that photo up there? I took that with my phone, posted it on Facebook, and my mom was over here playing with the kids within 20 minutes. That, my friends, is the beauty of living close to your parents and having an unlimited data plan.

For most of my life, I’ve spoken to my mom just about every day. Through college, I always called her to chat on my way to class. When I was commuting a million miles a day to work, I called her every day to check in and see how my son’s day went at her house. Now? I live closer than ever (3 miles away) and I see her often, but I still check in with my mom more often than I should probably admit. But the truth is, I appreciate every single day of her friendship and guidance, and I always will.

Since making the switch to our Walmart Family#Mobile plan, we don’t even have to worry about counting minutes or using too much data, so photos are flying back and forth like never before! And it’s a good time, too, because the kids are growing like weeds rhubarb! (Do you know how prolific that stuff is?!) Harvesting some for Daddy is among the fun things my boy loves to do at Grammie’s house, and I love that I get a peek into their day just by checking Facebook on my phone.

Some may call it a timesuck, but unlimited use of social media via phone is the single easiest way my family stays connected! I mean, what’s a birthday without a handdrawn card posted on your wall, right?

But it’s not all fun and games when my mom and I keep in touch via data messaging. Sometimes I really need to show her something right away, like a recent boo boo.


My baby girl fell and took off nearly all of her fingernail, so I shot a pic over to my mom and she was able to tell me right away how to clean it out (and how I shouldn’t freak out because it was fine.) Smart lady.

I’ve always said that I didn’t want my son to have to call me to ask how to make dinner, but instead to simply tell me about the fantastic dinner he just finished making. That kind of sums up my relationship with my mom – I don’t need her for every little thing (because she taught me well!) but I like to share the little things…the successes, the not-so-successes, the day-to-day kid funnies and milestones. Because we all know that when it comes down to it, those little things really are the big things, aren’t they? 

And with unlimited talk, text and web for one low monthly price, neither one of us has to miss a thing. I sure don’t miss those messages I used to get: “As of [date], you have used 75% of your monthly usage allowance…” Ugh! Never again!

  2. We still have a contract with a different provider but this sounds great. Glad I’m not the only one who still talks to her mom every day. She hasn’t graduated to a smartphone yet, though!

    I love how you shared the hand drawn card! This sounds like a great mobile option for any family.

  8. Since we live far away from much of our family, we try to keep in touch through social media a lot. Having a good wireless plan definitely makes it easier.

  9. MI need to look into this deal now that my daughter will need a phone at the end of the summer.

  13. One of the great things about technology is the fact that we get to share more with those we love. Cell phones are wonderful for helping people stay in touch with one another.

  14. I need to get this for my son. He would really like it and it would make a great graduation gift.
