coolest mom on the block

I started a new job last week. In my negotiations I requested an iPad. I got it. Besides making my job easier and making me more efficient, this makes me cool, right? (or rather, "sick", if I want to use vernacular of the times)

I was hoping for just a simple little phone that does nothing but store numbers and allow texts. I ended up with this iPhone.
According to my kids, I'm now officially the coolest mom on the block.
Anyone out there use an iPad? Do you love it as much as I do?

  2. I don't have an ipad or an iphone, but I'm an Apple girl. I have an imac and an ipod touch, and was always a mac user. I don't have an iphone because of my ability to crash phones...I could never stand crashing an Apple.

    I'd say you're pretty cool...

  6. sah-weet! I just went to the Apple store and bought a Mac book Pro! I have had it exactly 2 days and now I really want the ipad and the iphone. yeah - fat chance of me getting one the laptop was expensive!

    I had to chuckle cuz I was really hoping that you were giving an i pad away. Any chance of the new boss getting a 2nd one for a giveaway? *wiggles eye brows hopefully* LOL
