Ever since our iPad 1 broke down, the boys are without their usual YouTube entertainment until I reach home with my iPad.
To prevent history from repeating itself, like most mothers, I nagged. Each time Xxm plays with my iPad at dinnertime, I will remind him it was his porridge or congee splattering all over the iPad that resulted in its early demise. To Xmm, I blamed his overactive salivary glands.
One evening, Xmm was playing with my iPad again. I nagged at him in my usual way. Suddenly, I noticed a long strand of oral secretory product threatening to land on my home button. Before I could raise my voice, I noticed Xmm precariously shifting the iPad from the supposed landing spot of his saliva. I couldn’t help but break into a laugh.
