Kid excitement is contagious! My youngest daughter is turning 9 tomorrow. She is so excited it is contagious. We will celebrate the day by going out to dinner. The birthday girl picked out a Japanese steakhouse followed by dessert at a local frozen yogurt shop.
She is bouncing off the walls with anticipation. Not just for the special dinner, but also for her long awaited gift- an iPod Touch. You’d think she has won the lottery. This morning I have been setting it all up, and she is standing eagerly behind me making sure I have put on all her apps, I just really want to set up all the parental restrictions. As much as technology is a tool, it can also be a weapon if we don’t defend our young.
Kid excitement is trying to get me to give her this gift a day early. As much as those big, brown eyes plea, I will hold strong.
Note from Birthday Girl: Tell my mom to give it to me today! I need it! I need to set it up so I can message her, but she took it away to wrap it and I’m not happy about it!
Note from Mom: You’ll get it tomorrow.
