We are officially a full Apple family. MacBook Pro(s), iPads, iPhones, Apple TV and recently a 27 inch iMac was added to the family of glowing screens. We are the family that needs to have a special router to accommodate all the technology running in our home. And I’m pretty sure my husband would buy our youngest (17 months) some type of Apple device if she wouldn’t attempt to chew on it.
Although she’s too young for a Macbook Pro, she loves to use my iPhone. However, I must admit I’m thrifty when it comes to apps. I really don’t like to pay for them, so I usually find something that is free in place of one that is .99 – yes I know that’s way less than a Starbucks but it’s besides the point. Fisher Price has definitely won my vote. They have over 20 children’s educational apps. Everything from learning the alphabet, numbers, to singing Row, Row, Row Your Boat to even a small piano! All for free! I’ve gone through and bought almost all of them. They are in a special folder for just for Catherine.
And on the other end of the spectrum, my 18 yo son just bought a MacBook Pro. He’s a big gamer and had been using a 5 year old Dell – it’s quite the difference now. We had a little down time the other night and were all found sitting at our pub table with the glow of the screen on our faces.
Some families bond over sports, some food, and others television. We definitely love food, and a good show during prime time, but we will definitely always have the bond of technology.
A family that Macs together, stays together.
