Friday Reads

As a parent of an iPad-loving toddler, the article The Touch-Screen Generation was really intriguing. Especially since we claimed we weren’t going to let him have any screen time before age 2. Never, ever makes claims like that until you have children.

I needed a good laugh, especially after moving this week. Thanks to B for sending me the link to The Most Embarrassing Things Ever Blurted Out By Kids.

  1. I must continually remind myself not to make pre-children proclamations like that. My current one: No child of mine will have a cell phone before high school! By the time I have a kid, they’ll probably be hard wired. Ugh.
