Max is growing up in the age of technology and, as expected, loves mama's phone, camera, computer and of course the remote control. But far-and-away his favorite is the iPad. It starts around 5:30 when we get home from school and work:
Max: "i play ipad...i play ipad...iplay ipad...MAMA!...i PLAY ipad."
Mama: "hmm?" (while unpacking the lunches, putting milk in the fridge and reaching to turn on the oven)
Max: "i play IPAD!... I.... PLAY..... IPAD! "
Mama: "Here Max, try some of these carrots. You can dip them.." (while plunking something frozen into the oven)
Max: "I PLAY IPAD!!" (while climbing up on a stool, opening the ipad, and pointing for me to put in the password)
Usually this is followed by a compromise as Max gets to play iPad while smearing ranch dressing on the screen, but at least he is dipping his carrots and dinner will be ready in 30 minutes.

Have you heard of any good toddler apps? We are always looking for educational ways to entertain these kids.
