Apps for my kids that I have no guilt about

Go ahead – judge me for using the iPad as a distraction for my boys. I also use TV, sweets, and all other sorts of bribes, without feeling guilty whatsoever. Call it bad parenting…..and you’re probably right. I’m also that mom that lost her kid in the mall and almost let the stroller roll away from me down a hill (both times, people passing by helped out). But I have to say that I have chosen some pretty awesome apps that my kids love, AND they’re educational. Point for me. So here’s my list – let me know if you enjoy any of these in your guilt-free world. (All tested and approved by the Kid from babyhood to now 2.5 years old) Curious? Read on…

This toy is not recommended for evil genius babies

For months now, every time I take the Kid to Target, we go straight to the toy section and pick up the B. Meowsic Keyboard.  See, the Kid loves music, keyboards, and microphones, and this toy has it all.  But as soon as I was done shopping, we’d go put it back in the toy aisle and move on. Curious?
