Gadgets Aren't Always What They're Cracked Up To Be

Gadgets are definitely not hard to come by in this house. I guess when you marry a geek, gadgets are part of the whole package deal!

Last Christmas, Santa finally brought GG the DS she had been asking for for close to 2 years.

Apparently that was such a tall order
that Santa felt he needed a nap

Anyways, this DS has become my life-saver! It helps to make the drive to get the old man from work much more tolerable. She is so busy playing some game or another that Little Dude leaves her alone. That means no fighting. And Little Dude usually ends up falling asleep. That's an extra bonus! At least until after 10 at night when he finally falls asleep. That's when I regret him sleeping in the car.

Last year for her birthday, GG got yet another gadget. Her BFF gave her a Barbie Girl mp3 player. This thing is pretty cool. She can load a good bit of music onto it. It also comes with all kinds of accessories because you can change Barbie's clothes.

On a side note, she was listening to her music in the car this morning. Suddenly she exclaimed that Barbie had lost her pants! And the truth behind who Barbie really is has been revealed!

Back to the music... she loves listening to this thing. But I have learned that it is NOT a life-saver for me when driving. Or anywhere else for that matter! I love GG. She is so sweet and imaginative, but the girl cannot hold a tune to save her life!

Feel lucky that all you get is a picture
And not a video with sound!

Until next time...

It's probably the way anyone who rides in the car with me feels. I cannot sing at all, but I do it anyway!

She's so cute!

I swore that I would never let my little guy have any gadgets...but now I think that the Leapster 2 and the Wii are the best babysitters around when I need to get something done!
