Going back in time a few weeks for this one: Christmas Eve, at Grandma and Grandpa’s in Iowa City. Mommy is watching some movie or TV show on her laptop, while our hero shows off his prowess with all things digital, playing around with Daddy’s iPad. Also talking and pointing a lot.
The kid is 18 months old and he’s already figuring out how an iPad works, not to mention iPhones, telephones, TV remote controls… We will do our damnedest to make sure he gets plenty of non-screen time as he grows up – running around outside, reading books, connecting with people face to face. Happily, he’s already shown that he enjoys all of these things.
