Is it time for a landline?

Like many other twentysomethings, I haven't had a landline phone since I moved out of my parents' house. My husband and I both use our cell phones as our primary phones, and never even considered needing a phone line for the house. It seemed like an unnecessary monthly expense.

But now that we're getting ready to expand our family, I'm starting to wonder if a landline makes some sense. Unlike cell phones, a plain old telephone system usually works in power outages, won't run out of battery, and may be more reliable in emergency situations.

Have you ever been thankful to have a landline for your family, or had a situation where you wish you had one?
