What would we do without technology?

Today’s world of smart phones, the Internet and Wi-Fi dictates the way we live our lives. It has changed drastically from even just 5 years ago – we are definitely the world of ‘now’.  Never having to wait for anything very long.

I plan to make sure all his gifts are ‘activity’ gifts.  I want to

draw out his natural curiosity,  understand how his mind ticks and find out what interests him in this world.  A drum set it is then!

What will you do?
