Solon had his I Phone with him when he came over this weekend. Within minutes of seeing it and watching it work William was obsessed with it. Alessandra already is. I hate seeing kids hooked on a screen. I realize that in the years to come my kids may hate me when I say no to all these gadgets and video games, but I hate to see them staring at a screen when they could be reading, having fun outside, or doing something fun like cooking or art. I want them to develop a love for living an ACTUAL life, not a virtual one. We have one TV, one computer, and a flip phone. I love that our evenings are spent together playing, reading, and going on walks. I hope when they grow older, my kids will understand why I was so adamant about keeping these flashing lights out of the house...and I hope they don't end up eternally obsessed with the damn things because I kept them away from it!
