Sometimes, when I can’t think of something better to do with my spirited toddler, I pull up YouTube.com and search for “funny animals”. I let my son practice with the mouse by allowing him to choose the videos he wants to watch. (Of course, I am right there making sure nothing inappropriate comes up.) Plus, we get a chance to talk about the animals. He hasn’t seen a lot of chimps or kangaroos in his life, but with the funny animal videos, we get to see them in action.
