Mermaids and Firefox

Today Carter asked me to log onto Webkinz for him. For some reason I can't get it to come up on Internet Explorer. So I told him it wasn't working. Then he said, "Mom, you just need to open Firefox."

Me- "I don't even know what that is Carter."

Carter (as he's pointing to where on the computer I should click)- "See you just click here. That's Firefox."

Sure enough, Firefox worked and he knew EXACTLY which program it was. He's a boy after his father's heart. And I am so glad that my 4 year old can help me with my computer I-D-10-T errors.


Also, tonight Kate handed me a seashell and asked me if I could hear the ocean. I told her yes and tried to hand the shell back to her. Then she said, "No you talk a Little Mermaid. You say hi." Then she took it and pretended to talk on her seashell cell phone (I guess you could say a "shell phone". Hardy-har-har, I'm so funny.) to the Little Mermaid.

ADORABLE!!!!

Liam is the same way! He changes my desktop picture on a daily basis--the stinker! I guess it's like turning on a light switch to them---super easy! I laughed at the shell phone thing! The kids in my homeschool nursery have NO CLUE what those play phones with the rotary dials and cords are. They talk into the play calculator like it's a phone though....

Such a fun little moment of the day to share with us!

Carter-- what a little smartie! You're lucky to have a couple of tech guys right in your own house!

And I love the "Shell phone"-- perfect. Tell Ariel I said "hi".
