Tech Savvy

OK. So I'm standing in the kitchen, and Laurel's phone starts to ring. We all have Caller ID. I look to see who is calling.

The person calling: 'JUSTIN'.

This can't be right. My cell phone is sitting in its drawer. Maybe its been stolen.

I come out of the kitchen. And there is The Boy. Phone unlocked. Laurel's number found. Green button pressed. And Boy looking up cheekily at me.

How does this happen?

He's 2.

*thinks about how this could have happened*

Laurel could have been the last person you had called so he just had to press call again?... still, unlocking the phone is a good skill ;)

My youngest daughter is the phone expert in our family - kids have a way of "getting" technology early! 'Course, she *is* seventeen, not two... Hey, check my blog, I posted a "theological worldview" quiz, as well as pictures from the national gospel choir competition this past week!

Clearly the cat in the hat has been in your house and The Boy got left holding the phone!

G'day Justin
You obviously have a child genius on your hands.
Whether or not this is true, have you checked that you had locked the phone?
I regularly send picture messages to a friend from the inside of my pocket, once when I was sitting opposite him at a cafe'.
Never underestimate your own lack of technical ability, I know I can't.

Wait. Tell us also about how he shows up on the sofa, having just started a DVD on his own, sometime well after bedtime. He's a little rascal. I suspect his father was a bit of one himself!

and the amazing thing ... these small people don't seem to think it a big deal that they can use our cell phones, our laptops, our dvd-players ... when these things didn't even exist in my world back in arts 1 with Justin

Amazing, isn't it? Our 2 year old girl does that sort of thing. And does the same look when she knows she's in hot water...looks from the corner of her eyes.

Anon -- I can see that you are with Optus, and you are using dial-up and that you appear to be in Perth, Western Australia...
