Yesterday Little Miss Spice, my Kindergartner, came home from school. We had a snack, did her homework, and relaxed a bit. While cooking dinner, she came into the kitchen and asked “Mommy, can I have an Ipad?” Without thinking twice, I assumed she meant a notepad, since she had a pen in her hands.
“Do you mean your notepad?” I asked her.
“No…an Ipad.” she corrected me.
I wondered where the hell she saw an Ipad, a commercial maybe? So I thought I would ask her what it was to make sure we were talking about the same Ipad.
Sure enough she cleared that up by answering “Its like a laptop computer but it is flat , just like a notebook and it has a touchscreen and you can open all kinds of things on it.”
While picking up my jaw from the floor, I asked “Where did you see an Ipad honey?”
“At school” she answered. ” ___ brought one in for Show & Tell. Can I have one? PLEASE????”
Are you kidding me ??!!?
A freaking 6 year old brought in a Apple Ipad to kindergarten for Show and Tell? What happened to teddy bears and hot wheels?
Am I just being an old fart? Am I one of those parents that isn’t hip to the game?
Does your 6 year old have an Ipad or other electronic devices? At what age do you think it's appropriate for your child to have a computer, iPad or iPod?Post from Glamorous Insanity
