With the onslaught of “i” gadgets, it’s no wonder many parents are buying them for their children. There’s so much to choose from and nearly all the new, cool gadgets have “i” at the beginning of its name. Like that makes it more popular … well, it apparently does.
You can put an “i” in front of just about anything and it somehow becomes something that everyone wants. Take the iPod for instance. My 5-year-old niece has one. Yep! She has one and I don’t. LOL!
Well, leave it to its catchy title, MY 5-year-old wants one. She has her own little MP3 player — of no name really — and has all her favorite songs on it. It was even made for little ears and the volume can’t go up that loud. But, nooooo. At this early of an age, I am already faced with “Well, (so and so) has one!”
You have got to be kidding me! This soon? Really? You are going to throw that line in my face before you really even know what is going on?
I just want to laugh. Ha, ha-ha, ha-ha, HA!
It is not that I don’t trust her with taking care of it. Like I said, she has similar items. She is pretty smart for her age (well, I think so … but I am the mom and therefore allowed to say so, LOL!)
It is just the overwhelming iGadgets that are sweeping the nation, the world, by storm. I certainly don’t want to just get her one simply because her cousin has one. But, I really do want to experience the technology that is out there. Now I am faced with my own dilemma. Get her one or not?
