Kids: Are we going to the Aquarium?
Kids: Are we going to the big park with the steam train?
Kids: Well why are we going?
Mom: You are going to work for mom, but you get to test out new kids apps while you are there. AND you get to check out the iPad.
Little did the conference coordinators know that conference name tags take on a whole new meaning for kids. I never thought twice about a name tag, but these kids decorated theirs like a birthday cake on steroids. THEN, they saw the iPad. They colored, played music, took turns, painted art, wrote on a chalkboard, solved math equations, and read books....all on the iPad. The grownups were happy, they were happy, my little worker bees did their job without even remembering they were working.
Eventually Dad took them to the beach to collect shells, while I sat in the conference room for grown-ups. So they got the best of both worlds, and so did I. Maybe I'm ready to stop worrying about how fast the kids are growing up. Maybe growing up...will be fun too.
