This blog, among many other things, took a back seat while I finished up my first iPhone app, Santa Scan. The app should be fun for kids around Christmas. When I finally showed it to Claire, she loved it even more than I thought she would. She went crazy when she finally found Santa and heard him say, “Ho ho ho!” Claire became a little obsessed and kept yelling, “I can’t believe I heard Santa on Daddy’s phone!”
It was a tough push to get the app submitted to Apple, and I had spent the previous three weekends and a late night almost entirely dedicated to the app, while Kit and/or her mom watched the kids and generally took care of things around the house. I could have never finished the app in time for Christmas if it had not been for their extensive help with the kids.
