Plug It In

Last Monday, I took Đán back to the burn clinic for a follow-up. When the nurse came in, he asked if he could use the iPad. In the previous visit, another nurse lent him the iPad to play with while she worked on his burned area. This time the nurse said that the iPad was running out of battery and being charged in another office. Đán pointed to the plug on the wall and told her that she could charge it in here. She complimented him for being such a smart boy and that she didn’t think of that. So she went and took the iPad in for him to play. As we were wrapping to leave, she asked him if he wanted a sticker. He responded, “No,” and asked, “May I have the iPad instead?”
