One of the ways Grandma keeps me quiet

I’m 3 years old so I’m not always the quietest child in the restaurant, in the back seat of the car, at the dinner table, or at bed time.  I sometimes tend to get just a little bit wild and maybe even a little out of control.

But don’t worry because Grandma has found a way to always make me quiet as a mouse.   She’s just gives me my iPad.   Of course, Grandpa thought it was his iPad but we all know better.  Someday, we’ll have to tell him.

Getting back to my original story…  Grandma just has to turn it on and hand it to me and instant silence.

The iPad is extremely cool.  It has games, puzzles, books, TV shows, movies, videos and photos of me and my family, and much much more.  What’s there not to like.  You would be amazed at how long it can keep me busy.

If we are at a restaurant for example, and I start to get just a little antsy, out comes the iPad and suddenly I’m calm and quiet.

What really fascinates Papa is how well I use it.  I can turn it on, adjust the volume, pick the app or video I want to watch..  I can even size things… flick my fingers out and it gets bigger, flick my fingers in and it gets smaller.  And turning pages is a breeze; you just swipe the page in the direction you want to go.

The only problem I have is I can get Grandpa’s computer screen to change pages when I swipe it, no matter how hard I pound on the monitor.

And remember when I said Papa still thinks the iPad is his?   Last time I check I had a couple of seasons of  “Dinosaur Train“, “Little Einsteins“, “Jacks’s Big Music Show“, “Wonder Pets“, “Rugrats”, and tons of “Phineas and Ferb” (Papa likes them also), and a couple of seasons of “Scooby Doo“.  Scooby Doo is my favorite.  I could watch him all day.

I also have the three Toy Story movies (“Toy Story“, Toy Story 2“, and “Toy Story 3“) loaded on the iPad..  and don’t even get me going about all of the books, games and puzzles I have.

If Papa ever decided he wanted to use it, I don’t think there’s room for any of his stuff… (smile)..

Catch you in a few days.

“I’m working” and my favorite books

My latest battle cry is “I’m working”.   That’s what I yell when someone attempts to get me to leave Papa’s office when he’s working.  You see, I have my own little work area in Papa’s office.   When he’s working, I can go in a sit with him and work also.

To make my office complete, Papa bought me a couple of books that I could look at.   Those books over the last few months have turned into my favorite books.   I drag them everywhere.  When I go to bed, I take one with me so Grandma has something to read while I fall asleep (which can be a very long process on occasion).    I bring them in the kitchen when I eat and I bring them in the family room so Mom, Grandma, or Papa can read them to me…  I drag them everyplace.

Why do I enjoy them so much?  They’re about dinosaurs of course.   In fact, one book is about dinosaurs eating. and the cryolophosaurus on the books cover is having pancakes, one of my personal all time favorites.   These are the books I have so far from the series by “Jane Yolen & Mark Teague”.  As a toddler, I can highly recommend these.  In fact, my cousins like to read them when they visit.   There are a couple more of the “How Do Dinosaurs..” series left that I’m hoping Papa buys for me real soon.

Oh, I almost forgot.  Here’s a picture of my “work space” in Papa’s office.

Well, that’s all for now

Thank you for stopping by and please stop by again.

BTW, in the real world I’m getting this “please”, “thank you”, and “you’re welcome” stuff down pretty well
