We needed to play some videos for Wii I told you all that last week we were in and out of the highest violent waiting rooms and doctors in an emergency room and choose get picked and poked for IVs and stuff like that so to keep her mind off that I was trying to play baby Einstein videos as they're singing I mean it. They're cool little babies. She typically doesn't get to watch any television just doesn't get any devices yet she's taken Einstein that warned that this owners are watching. Now. As a wannabe millennial he should know. I don't know we use them for actual babies and not with. So I was play them for reits which of course as they want to reach out and grabbed. The device whether it's a matter and I phone. And every time she would grab it she would touch it and press pause are we end up some. Down some weird YouTube rabbit hole of ads or use org and scroll the last four videos you watch and all of a sudden she's. I'm watching a recipe for chicken and yeah you and it'll frustrate her even more so their whole point of that was playing this for her to Concord pound.
