Easier said than done

29 Feb

We said we wouldn’t give our toddler an iPod.

“There’s no need.”

“He should play with toys.”

“He should explore the world.”

“That’s lazy parenting.”

Oh well.

 

*Just to be clear, that is Deron’s old iPod. Only the screen works.

    He’s a male…..some things are inevitable and you just have to accept them. 😉

      He’s also related to Dad. I kinda knew this day was coming, I was just hoping it would happen later.

    And he’s definitely the cutest geek ever!

      I agree with Sue… very cute geek 🙂
      Amazing how kids love anything that adults play with/use. When my little brother was very yound, I remember him obsessing with our dad’s electric shaver… he just had to have it!

        I’m just amazed how anything with a screen draws his attention- laptops, microwave timers, iPhones/iPods. There must be some magic in those electronic devices.

        probably the fact that it’s back-lit or bright or how what they see changes as they touch or interact with it? they’re curious little bubs 🙂

    OK, that’s definitely going on as the lock screen image on my iPhone!
