Yeah, I know it's excessive. I agree, but every family has their thing. He's our only child, late on life and my hubby is an Asian techno freak. My son had the Ipad 1 "for learning games" when he was 3 and the Wii when he was 5. I'm on a damn laptop I wish I could kick him outside to play, but coming from Ny and now in Aurora, I don't let him out unless it's an official planned activity. It's a far cry from how I grew up in Maine with the pine tress and blueberry bushes, but today's a different world.
