Kids + Blog = Humor

– Posted in: Childhood, Power of Words

Are you going to write about that in your blog? That is actually a question that I hear from my son, In fact, once while watching my daughter have an enormous melt-down, he goes over to the family desktop. He starts pretending to type. I asked him what he was doing. He told me that he was writing on his blog. “What are you writing?” “About baby, she’s acting hilarious. I have to tell the world”.

So that gives you an idea of my children’s understanding of the online world. This has expanded greatly since they discovered iCarly on Netflix. They love, Love, LOVE that show. So much so that I caught my son trying to log onto his dad’s laptop. When I asked him what he was doing, he told me that he wanted to go to I asked him why. He told me that he wanted to write a letter telling them how much he loved the show. I told him that he was not allowed to go online but if he would write a letter, I would send it to them.

So that’s what he did:

Hi Carly. Hi Sam. I love your show. I seen every single episode. You guys are cool and amzing.

You’re tully love your show,

That sign-off translates to: Yours truly. Love your show,

Then my daughter wanted in. She tried to write it and then she was helped by her dad. Basically, she held the pencil while her dad wrote but she did sign her name.

So Carly and Sam, if you’re reading this, my kids love you. I fear the days wherein my son actually has his own blog are not far off. I can’t wait to see his view of me as a mother — just kidding. I can wait for that forever.

The blogging bug is contagious.

It’s a regular outbreak but at least it’s a cute one!

I love their logic. I wish I could see the world that way, some days.

Oh my gosh…. this was adorable AND cracked me up! I LOVE that your son went to the computer to tell the world how funny the baby was! My grandson always asks me “Gramma, are you gonna put that in the blog?”

It’s funny when they become aware of the blog, isn’t it?

“You guys re cool & amazing / “tulle” love your show!”


Traci November 27, 2011, 4:26 pm

And I “tulle” love you.

But, this? This is making me DIE from laughter:

‘I asked him what he was doing. He told me that he was writing on his blog. “What are you writing?” “About baby, she’s acting hilarious. I have to tell the world”.

I think Carly is adorable but I remind them not to talk sassy like Sam. But they really enjoy it!
