Angry Birds and a little boy

Connor is obsessed with Angry Birds.  As soon as I get home in the evening, he grabs my iPhone and that’s the end of that… until the battery goes flat!

He’s so comfortable navigating around my phone now, and can basically show you where everything is and how it works.

Even though I’m quite relieved some days to get him out of my hair for a while, while he plays games… I’ve discovered that I’m not getting the phone calls I should be getting.

It turns out he’s also become my call screener!! Now if it was a marketer that was trying to sell me something, I wouldn’t be so bothered, but this week it was my new boss!!


I was chatting to my parents and my sister, and Bradley came running into the kitchen with Connor throwing a tantrum behind him… he was yelling that I had a phone call.  By the time I got the phone though, the person had put the phone down.

He phoned back a minute later though, and then told me that he’d tried phoning about 4 times, and had had long conversations with Connor… but couldn’t convince him to give the phone to me.

LOL!! Thankfully he has kids and thought the whole situation was quite funny.

He told me the next day that when Connor answered the phone, and he’d said he wanted to speak to me, that Connor just replied “My Mommy’s busy, she’s talking to my granny” and promptly put the phone down!

Nothing was going to get in the way of him and his game.

    My 3yr old loves Angry Birds too! His mantra is “Mommeee, kinnai (can I) play birdies??” – you’re right it does come in handy! Luckily for me it’s just on my iPod touch, since I don’t have an iPhone yet – but I was also amazed how I can just hand it to him, and he can slide it ‘open’ swipe to the ‘games’ page and away he goes. Yay for apple technology :)
