My husband already has an iPad, but between him and my 6-year old, I rarely get my hands on it. He uses it to check email, watch videos, surf the web, and read books, and when he’s not using it, my son plays a whole slew of educational games (it’s crazy how many apps there are for kids) and watches full-length movies and LEGO animation videos on YouTube.
It also comes in handy when you have a kid who fires one random question after another at you. Instead of reaching for our laptops, we just type it into the iPad. It’s faster and always close.
Sadly, I wasn’t in the audience for Oprah’s final Favorite Things show, where she gifted everyone with their very own iPad, so if you’re reading this, Santa, you can scrap all the other holiday gifts on my list and just get me an iPad. I’ll try to use it for something productive, but I can’t promise you anything.
