How Young is Too Young To Start Blogging?

One reason I haven't posted more frequently this summer is because I can no longer keep the laptop out and open throughout the day. And, of course, I am banned from the desktop in the locked study. Elizabeth loves the computer. If I turn my back on it (and her) for even few seconds, she'll change my fonts and type sizes and somehow forward random email to old co-workers who really need to be deleted from my address book. Oh, I tried moving it to the high counter, but that didn't deter her much. She's entered that stage where she tries imitate what I do. She gets washrags out of the laundry basket and wipes the tub down. She plays at the toy kitchen and can stir the heck out of her imaginary dinners. She rocks her baby and pats her back. I am so glad that I am setting a positive example of mothering and housekeeping for her. But I think, maybe, I'm spending too much time on the computer.....

Alex HATES the computer. Like with a passion.

HA! That is AWESOME! She really was working that computer.

Lucy is at the random smack the keyboard stage and then shake her head "No" at me stage. Most of my blogging happens during naps. Or, um, not at all... :)

LOL, watch out! My son Jack, then 2 yrs old, deleted the internal memory on my laptop and even the geek squad couldn't fix it.

She is too cute!!

That kid has personality. You should really get the HUGE wooden block letters...paint them pretty colors and put it up in her room. PERSONALITY. She's just too cute.

P.S. My boy has a love of the laptop, too. Drives me NUTS.

That's hilarious. I had to hide my computer when my son was about that age. Now he knows to leave it alone. But if I chat with someone, he comes over to the computer to "say hi". It's funny.

My oldest was a computer kid at about 2 yrs old. H e rules the computer. He's really awesome about respecting our computer rules and letting us know when He thinks something might be inappropriate that he sees on his little game site. My 6 yr old kinda piddledinks with them. He's more interested in hurtling toward space at the speed of light just to see if he can do it. Funny how kids are so different. Funny how kids now are soooo ciomfortable with technology.
