teach him to chew gum and clap from the sidelines as you do your own thing with your iPad
Won't be easy. He's a persistent little bugger. Hardly ever gives up when he wants something.
Manipulative too. Sometimes he'll peck at me, and then before I can even say anything he'll have his head down cooing stuff like "pretty bird, daddy loves the bird" in a soft, sweet voice.
On the flip side, just about every time I swear in front of her, the female will look at me and in a reproachful manner say "be good"
(only thing I can figure is she's reacting to my tone of voice)
