One handed wonder
Kids can be very skilled when they feel like it.
Oh, definitely my son’s old Gameboy which his uncle bought for him.

Josh would be sitting in the bathtub playing on it, getting dressed for school using one hand to button up his shirt and the other skillfully moving across the Gameboy keypad (how do they get that right?!) I remember waking up in the middle of the night to Gameboy tunes, shuffling to his bedroom and looking for that annoying little toy under his bed. And I’ll never forget the endless moaning at him about batteries which would go missing out of appliances to support his habit.

Yep, I’m sure one day he will hear a similar tune and reminisce about a toy he so dearly loved which thankfully… ahem, I mean unfortunately, was left at a friend’s house and never returned.
