Once upon a time, the boys had one Kindle. Then, they got two. Then, one broke and so we bought a Nabi, instead. Then, I got the one fixed on warranty, so I had a Kindle, too. Then, Ben lost the Nabi (we always assumed it was deliberate, because the Kindle was preferred because it has fewer restrictions). Whether it was deliberate or not, it was definitely too irresponsible for a $300 “toy,” so Mark put the Kindle up and the boys couldn’t have it back until the Nabi was found.
Months passed. Maybe a year. Maybe more.
Then, Ben’s room got a very thorough cleaning and the Nabi was found tucked under his carpet. Don’t ask how, because we don’t know.
Mark washed both devices, charged their batteries, and gave them to the boys. Now, they are happily using their devices, unless one is still charged when the other runs out of juice, and then they are “happily” fighting over the device that still works.
So a new year begins!
