At our house, you can’t use the computer when Hailey is around. She likes to help you by banging on the keyboard as you try to type. She thinks she is helping, but it is hard to type a coherent message when little fingers are busy reaching for keys.
Today at Fry’s we picked up a keyboard just for Hailey. I opened the box and cut the cord off the keyboard even before I had unwrapped all the plastic. It is weird feeling to disable, completely, a brand new keyboard before it has ever sent a keystroke. If the plan works, Hailey will enjoy banging on her very own keyboard more than she likes being herded away from the main keyboard. If all goes well this could be the best $4.99 we ever spent.
