The BlackBerry Diaries: Adventures in Modern Motherhood
Toddlers and technology – not so different!
As award-winning author Kathy Buckworth points wisely points out, owning a smartphone is a little like adding another child to your family. The device is constantly buzzing, poking, and distracting its owner from whatever it is she’s trying to accomplish. It bears an uncanny resemblance to the uncooperative two-year-old hanging off Mom’s leg. And is that holster really any different from a Baby Bjorn? When either squeaks, Mom jumps.
Still not convinced? Consider Buckworth’s irrefutable facts: Both “start up” upon entering the washroom. Both go off in the middle of the night, even when they’re supposedly turned off. Both require time alone plugged into a one-way communication device to be recharged: for the BlackBerry, it’s the USB cord; for the kid, the television set or GameCube.
Get ready for a no-holds-barred trip through the wacky world of toddlers and technology with a mom who really understands!
