Noah drew this on his grandma’s ipad last night (26 months).  (His Daddy couldn’t keep from playing, so he did the dots in the eyes and the ears, but the rest is Noah.)  If I can wrestle the ipod or ipad away from Noah for long enough, I can email his pictures right from there before he overdraws or erases them, but it’s almost impossible.

I’m firmly against us buying an ipad- we have other things we need to do with that money- but I can see it being just part of the cost if we try to fly to Hong Kong with Noah.

    Hong Kong! How do I sign up for that vacation?

    Awesome drawing Noah. Maybe I can draw like that when I finally get the iPad I’m dreaming about too. 🙂

    Oooooh! If I bring the Noah-tainment, then can I come? Huh? Huh?

    I don’t know when we will get our act together to go to Hong Kong, but a family we’re good friends with moved there last year, so visiting them is our most realistic wild fantasy.

      That’s really cool. An excellent way & reason to go somewhere totally different.

    I don’t know if I ever told you that I lived in Hong Kong for two years and I highly recommend visiting it with kids. There’s a walk-through aviary in the center of downtown — at least there used to be.

    As someone who made an 18-hour flight to London with two-year-old Sophie (and without my husband) I can also tell you: felt boards. Felt boards are cheap, & quiet & entertaining for hours on end. It doesn’t matter if some pieces drop under the airplane seat. You can even bring your own felt & cut your own pieces.

    Not that an ipad wouldn’t be fun, but felt and a magnadoodle may be cheaper.

      I know, there’s nothing an ipad does that another thing we already own can’t do. But we’re already drinking the kool-aid since Dave got an ipod touch for his birthday, and it’s pretty awesome.

    Wow! good work, Noah. Could you send me some fridge art?
