Computers and children


Thing One has recently discovered the joys of Yahoo messenger. He was allowed to chat with a pre-approved young friend and LOVED it. He was already saying he thought he needed a laptop, now he wants a laptop with wifi. Many justifications are being made, good thing he doesn't know about this comic. I am going to go hide my Bloom County books so he will never find it.

LOL, the boy has alreadye developed his mother's addiction! and i LOVE that comic! I've seen logo's tongue in pictures and she rivals gene simmons so even if he gets the banana 6000 it may be hopeless!

I see it coming now....fighting over who gets to use the computer next to chat with their freaks in the box!

LOL!! V has her own email and had messenger for a short period. It may come back but there are only 2 people she can chat with. You know one of them.

That's the best celebrity endorsement you can come up with? Your kid?

Minka said...

Give it a year and he will name gadgets he needs you have never heard about.
It is just such a precious time :)

So are you having to kick him out of your throne when you step away and return with a new cup of tea yet? ;)

LOL! I love the new Gene Simmons show on A & E . My 14 yr old daughter is up my butt about a cell phone and I am sorry but I do believe that she is too young just yet for one . I mean , what could a 14 yr old have to say that is so important that they must carry a cell phone ? We do have a third cell phone that we call the spare and if she is going somewhere and we aren't sure the exact end time she can call us but other than that she won't have a cell until she starts driving and it will be for emergencies only.

Lime~ I haven't checked to see if he inherited my tongue, I shall have to investigate that.

Bare~ I am bigger than him still, I so totally win...for now.

Snavy~ The preapproved friends are a good thing.

Grunt~ Berke Breathed is a GENUIS!
I wanna touch his penguin.

Doug~ We must take what we can get, right?

Minka~ Are you mocking my pain?!?!

Sar~ In fact, in an attempt to soften me up he actually brought me a cup of tea this afternoon. Clever lad I have.

Egan~ I am afraid you are not on the friends list, sorry, but if you send your information including credit card numbers we will have you vetted.

Seamus~ Don't threaten me, maaaan.
:p

Breazy~ I can't get Mr. Logo to carry one, I am certainly not going to give one to my 10 year old. Course, he isn't getting a laptop either, till he saves up and buys it. I'm with you, kids don't need technology, I played with a rusty can and a stick, and I was THANKFUL! OK, not really, but still...
