Keeping your toddler off your keyboard
Here's how Chris gained five more minutes of computer time:
While using the laptop, from time to time I'd have my 1 year old son Alexander on my lap. That stopped shortly after Alex decided he wanted to "help" me type, but even recently Alex would struggle to get at the keyboard while I was on the PC.
I decided to give my son his own keyboard to play with. I simply took an old PC keyboard, snipped the cord, and shoved the leftover wire into the keyboard case. Just as a precaution, I removed each key, applied a bit of super glue and reapplied.
Now Alex doesn't need to use Daddy's keyboard - he has his own :)
