Did I mention that hubby gave me an iPad for my birthday?

He did.

And Little M LOVES that thing. 

We have the Watch Disney Jr App and the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Interactive Episode on it for her.

But she loves the front-facing camera, she loves Facetime with her grandparents..

And she loves that home button.

If given an opportunity, she LOVES pressing that button over and over again.  We have to put our finger over it to hide it so she doesn’t do so.  I’m afraid she might break the thing!

She even knows how to turn the screen on after it’s been off for awhile.. that home button!

We try to limit her use of the iPad because I know she could probably play with that thing all day. 

We definitely don’t want to be those parents that stick an iPad in front of their kid all day to prevent them from acting up or being wild..

But.. she starts to throw little fits when we take the iPad away.  She doesn’t buy the whole, “iPad is sleeping.. we gotta put it away” speech I give her.. she just throws a fit!

I know not to give into it.  I can usually distract her by singing a silly song, or showing her some of her toys.. I just don’t want her to get addicted.  She has her whole life to stare in front of a computer monitor.. why start now?

What are some ways that you incorporate the use of iPads with you toddler?
