Pierce has long had a watch obsession. It isn't unusual for him to wear two or even three watches at once. Indiglo watches, calculator watches, athletic watches, Lego watches. They are all fascinating to him. He strikes up conversations in public with strangers about their watches. Recently he met someone in the library who had a solar watch that he found very intriguing.
Pierce was thrilled to finally get his smart watch the day after his birthday. I put some game apps on it for him, and he especially likes the rubik cube and the drawing app.
A week after The Amazing smart watch was purchased, Paul took Pierce on a bike ride. I decided to take the twins to Toys R Us. They still had their birthday gift cards (from last August!) that my aunt and uncle gave them. Reid picked out a deep sea diver toy set. Cort (who wants to be just like Pierce) picked out a VTech kid smart watch. Who even knew they made them.
Cort got home and the drama began. Cort's smart watch could take pictures and video. It had a voice recorder which could distort your voice into robotic voice or chipmunk voice. It had a little owl that would teach Cort the time. In truth, it was a pretty neat watch for kids.
Pierce was a little green over Cort's new 'smart watch'.
Poor Pierce. His watch is still pretty awesome. But man, life as the oldest is sometimes so tough!
