The best way to find out all the things your remotes, computers and electronics can do is to give your toddler a few seconds alone with them.  Several times a day I find myself in the middle of the “what the heck could they have pushed” game.  I have to admit I’ve discovered features I never would have had a clue about were it not for my tech savvy children.

Of course, my kids have also managed to push some of my own buttons that I wasn’t exactly aware of either, the internal kind that can leave you anywhere from mushy/sappy to psycho/crazy.  And just like with the remote, the mommy buttons that lead to a bad result seem to be the most intriguing to them.  On the positive side, once they’ve pushed a not so great button I know exactly how to undo the damage quickly the next time.  I can also anticipate when they are about to push something with dire consequences and redirect them.

    This is funny, in a wise sort of way. I’m still learning that I have buttons I didn’t know existed, thanks to my son.

    Yes, I have many buttons that my kids love to push. I’m bad about letting them do it though, something I’m working on.
