After months of (nagging) persuading...
I finally successfully convinced him that getting Trevy an iPad is a need
So after Trevy's nap (3 hour naps are torture sometimes!) we piled the kiddos in the car and set out for our nearest Apple store.
Which upon entering it became abundantly clear...
We are so not cool enough to hang there!
The place was positively teeming with people and gizmos of all shapes and sizes! And the noise. I could hardly think! It was a bit of sensory overload for Trevy, actually. Because he's non-verbal(ish) I have become a master at reading his body lingo. He was radiating insecurity ques. Mute. Wide (panicked) eyes. Repetitive pulling of the belly region of his shirt in-out-in-out-in-out. Clingy. Pointing at the exit.
I swooped Trevy up and went for a walk while daddy endured the up-sell attempt by the spiky haired sales dude.
I'll tell ya who wasn't insecure though...
Toby and Bri! Can you believe my little nerds figured out how to connect two of the display models and played Uno together!
The whole 45 minute ride home they were buzzing about all the stuff they couldn't wait to do with the iPad!
It provided lots of (my) entertainment listening to Toby verbally guide Jonathan (who was stumped often) through the set up process!
I don't think Jonathan appreciated my laughter.
Finally they were able to snuggle up and start playing!
Trevy was really confused at first. We fondly call his confused face The Lost Puppy look. Any time something deviates from his norm...he gets that look about him. And he's so used to the computer being big. And at a desk. So to suddenly have it in his lap?
He just wasn't quite sure what to do about it.
He even pushed it back to me when I tried to give it to him.
But it didn't take too long for all the wonderful Cause & Effect to
suck him right in!
Trevy (ahem...and his parents) needs all the cool people's help though!
Cause we're having issues finding appropriate (preferably free) apps to upload?
If you've found goodies...pretty please share the wealth with a comment!
