1. Are you hosting Easter? If so, what are you making?

2. What was your favorite lullaby to sing to your baby/ies?

3. At what age did you get your child a cellphone?

1. No Easter.

2. I did my children a favor and did not sing to them.

3. There wasn't a magical, rite-of-passage age for the cell phone. They each got them as we deemed necessary. We started each of them on prepay phones to test their level of responsibility with them before moving them into the more expensive contract phones.

That's exactly what I did.  By the time I had determined (when he was 14.5-15) that he was responsible enough to go on my plan, he had decided that none of the phones in my allowed price range were good enough for him, so he's bought all of his phones since.  My son is a techno-snob.

We don't do Easter

2. What was your favorite lullaby to sing to your baby/ies?

Stuff I made up, or stuff I altered to make kid-friendly.  We never did "kid" music.  

3. At what age did you get your child a cellphone?

I was 42.  He was 12.

Same here. My dd started out with doing tracfone and then took one of my non-smartphones going onto our plan. In the years since, she has had smartphones and only this year did she get an Iphone (which to me was no difference than getting a smartphone). My ds is starting out with a non-smartphone but on our plan which was just easier.
