Photo of the Day | My Festive Son

16 Dec

My oldest son is currently wearing a Mickey Santa hat, under a Santa blanket, playing on my iPad. Yes, he is definitely my son. 🙂

Maily: Your Kids’ First Email

14 Aug

During my nightly reading of Mashable, I came across a post from earlier this month that I had somehow missed. The post was Maily: The App That Introduces Email to Your 4-Year-Old. Intrigued by the title, I read the article and was immediately excited about Maily.

Maily describes their app as:

E-mail re-invented for kids

Kids create emails using five tools adapted to their needs: pencils, brushes, photos, backgrounds, stamps and their own words.

Their introductory video explains it even better though….

Yes, that was a Woody doll that you spied on Tom’s couch.

I downloaded the free Maily app earlier this evening. Setting it up was a breeze. I added in contacts for Robert to email and even uploaded profile photos for myself, Robert and Mommy. I can’t wait to show Maily to Robert tomorrow and let him create his first email.

Thank you, Maily, for bringing email to my little tech-savvy son! 😀

Too Much Walt Disney World?

26 Jul

Another quote from our 4 1/2-year-old provided today’s edition of Amusing Kid Musings.

After Robert finished breakfast this morning he asked if he could play a game on my iPad.  I still had to feed William, so I got it out for him and he started playing Jake’s Never Land Pirate School by Disney.  When William and I returned to the living room, Robert had moved on from Pirate School and was touring Disneyland with the Disneyland Explorer app.

Later, when Mommy came downstairs, I asked Robert to tell her a conversation he and I had been having.  After a few seconds of silence (and me repeating myself), Robert nonchalantly said, “I can’t right now, Daddy.  I have too much Disney World on my brain.”

Too much Disney World?
