When you are home with children all day, there are only so many things you can do to keep everyone occupied. I have my regular daily activities, my back up activities, and my last-ditch-effort activities. After that, we just have to get out of the house. Unfortunately, there are also only so many times you can visit the library and or Target before those are no longer exciting for the baby either.
And so, I decided to take Grey on a little field trip to Best Buy. Who knew that Best Buy could provide at least an hour of free, unlimited baby-entertainment?! They should charge at the door to enter that place. We spent about 15 minutes in the stereo aisle while Grey danced to whatever crap they had blasting through the speakers. After that, we amused the guys at the cell phone counter while Grey pointed at all of the phones and pretended to call Daddy. And then – all of a sudden – his eyes lit up. Turns out, like every other man on the planet, Grey is a sucker for flat screens and sports. He toddled over to the TV aisles and stood there watching a hockey game. I swear he has never been still for that long in his little life. It was amazing. If all of those televisions were screening Sesame Street, we may just have stayed until they closed.
While we were in the store, I treated myself to a new Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad. Looks like it was a successful trip for both of us. Next time we are sick of story time at the library, we might just take a little ride back to Best Buy and check out some free 3D TV.
