Kindle Addiction

  • Posted on July 29, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Alex and Ben love their Kindle Fires. They really do! Maybe a little bit too much.

When the Internet goes down, they can no longer use the Kindles as they prefer to do. So, I make a point of downloading programs that they can use (and enjoy) without wi-fi access. Unfortunately, they are better at the Kindles them than we are. Before the Internet went out, they both went and deleted the programs I’d downloaded. I don’t notice until after we lose our Internet connection.

And then what happens? Can you guess? The boys fight with each other, of course! They want to use their Kindles so badly that it’s very disruptive when they can’t.

Life is better with Kindles. I know that. But I have to keep telling myself, “It’s worth it when they work….It’s worth it when they work…It’s worth it when they…STOP THAT!”

Oh boy!
