Over the last month, Alex has decided that simply taking the iPad and computer are much easier than having to actually earn them with pesky obedience. To counteract this train of thought, Dave and I locked the desired items with a passcode.
On the weekend, I noticed that Alex was leaning oddly to one side while Dave entered the passcode. Abruptly I realized what was going on and shouted a warning but it was too late. Alex had been watching Dave enter the code in a mirror.
Today I got confirmation that Alex does indeed have the code, having started up the iPad without any assistance.
Well played, Mr. Bond. Well played.
