"Technology has to be invented or adopted."


Mrs M is getting her hair cut today so me and Opeie are again sitting in the car waiting. We just had to wake him up from his nap because we needed to go out so he was a little grumpy but he's ok now thanks to 'The Aquabats Super Show'. He's loving the show and so am I. I don't think it's aimed at children but the boys think its great.


I'd be lost without our iPad at times like this, makes me think how dependent we have become on technology (he says writing this post on his phone). I seem to see a lot of articles written regarding tv, computers, games consoles and children and they are all generally negative. Is it really that bad though as long as your children us these things on moderation? The boys have access to all of these things but they are not just shoved in front of them and left.


Seth has a stand in frame for physio to help straighten his back because of his muscle condition and we let him play Xbox while he is in there (gives me an excuse to play Lego Batman too, he needs a sidekick after all), it helps to keep him motivated to do his physio. The iPad comes in handy when we are out and about for opeie as he doesn't like being in the car to much. I used to hate long car journeys when I was younger and got irritable very quickly, its boring for passengers. an iPad back then would have been a godsend for both me and my parents.

If your the sort of parent that makes time to sit down and play with your child, do some craft and generally give them the attention they deserve then the occasional use of these items isn't bad at all plus the use of a computer will prepare them better at school, I was terrible at IT and have only started picking things up in the last few years

Well that's me done from the drivers seat again, i love getting the chance to write these short post's. Ill leave you now with a picture of Opeie with his new dummy looking like a proper English gentleman.
