It's 30 minutes before the kids need to leave for school.
School uniforms still need to be put on.
Ava needs to finish her breakfast.
Permission slips need to be signed.
Shoes need to be found. (Why do the shoes always go missing? Whyyyy??)
Hair needs to be combed and wrangled.
Lunches need to be packed.
Shoes for dance practice need to be found. (Again with the finding of the shoes.)
So of course it makes total sense, and is a great use of time, to get the kids to watch the promo video for the new iPad.
I don't know why I didn't think of it first. As you can see, Grace is thrilled by the enhanced Face Time capabilities, while Ava remains dubious about the new magnetic cover. Always a wild card, Nate rejects the idea of "the next big thing" altogether. And Jason? Well, I keep catching him doodling "Jason + iPad 4eva" and "Jason iPad" all over the place.
If you're been reading this blog for awhile, you may remember a similar scenario from last year when the iPhone 4 came out:
I think I see a pattern developing.
