My 5-year-old wants an iPad. He wrote me a very persuasive letter on why he should get one…

 

Yesterday Darren came home from school with an assignment he completed in class. The task was to write someone a persuasive letter about something he wants using three supportive sentences.  Behold the letter…

[Dear Mom,  I should get an iPad because I will play with it. I should get an iPad because I want to draw a leprechaun. –>I should get an iPad because I want to play a puzzle game. Love, Darren]

Of course he wants an iPad. What five-year-old doesn’t? And while it wasn’t part of the assignment, I took it upon myself to write a persuasive letter back to Darren about what I want (also using three supportive sentences).

Dear Darren,

I want an iPad so I can watch movies in bed while making excessive online purchases and checking Facebook. I want an iPad so I can go on Pinterest and pretend that I’m going to paint an old picture frame and create the artwork to put in it first thing in the morning. I want an iPad so I can read while I wait in an excessively long carpool line every. single. day.

Love,

Mother-of-the-year
 P.S. You’re not getting an iPad.
If you’re actually lucky enough to own an iPad, you should park it on one of these awesome charging stations from Dock Station. But do me a favor and please don’t mention it to Darren.

  • Don’t you wish they made a much less expensive version of iPads that could do less in terms of internet, etc, but that would still be fun for kids. It must be possible.

  • We were at parent-teacher conferences last night and the teacher asked us, “Do you have an iPad?” “Um…no.” Then she proceeded to show us the great games my kid could be learning multiplication on. Darn technology. Now I really want one. Luckily the apps were available for my phone. I guess my kid won’t be left in the learning dust after all!

  • I would never have purchased one because I already have an iPhone, but my husband gave me one for Xmas…and I love it.

  • @Renae – Yeah, they use technology like crazy in Darren’s classroom but I’m thinking he wants an iPad to play Angry Birds and watch Netflix. Hmmmmm…where did he learn that from?
