I absolutely hate when they're sick, but I have the absolute weirdest brag right now; kiddo handles puking like an absolute champ.

Much better than me. I'm always crying while puking my guts out - she was just all business in the most grown up way ever, wiped her mouth with the towel I handed her, asked where her water bottle was and whether she could brush her teeth right now. :eek:
That’s a legit brag. Kiddo is HANDLING business.

Welp, it only took four years for my son to tell me he hates me

two years old is too young for a screen, right? my wife wants to get him a fire tablet or iPad. i think it's a BAD idea.
Two? Probably, imo. My kiddo does not have her own screen still; she has to ask permission to use an iPad, but she does have a computer where she can access education.com, ixl.com and getepic.com in the mornings before we get up.

Eh, I gave mine a tablet late 1. Almost 4 now, she still can use it whenever she wants, but that ends up being not very often. Maybe an hour/week. Same with her Switch. She would much rather go outside and play.

We got a fire tablet at two but he only uses it in the car, if you let them have free reign with it they'll probably become glued to it, which isnt good.

As long as you regulate the content and how much they use it, I think it's fine. Both my kids 2 and 4 have iPads. They learn tons of stuff watching, it's actually crazy.

maybe you can inform me on how to better monitor. YouTube is a fucking CESSpool. it's quite hard to monitor. even YT Kids has tons of garbage and they don't make it that easy to block/manage the content.

yea. it's tougher here now that it's cold af and gets dark at 4:30. he'd rather play too but between that and a 7-month old, it's a little harder.
