My boys, Capt. Chaos and his sidekick Destructo, took full advantage of their time on the computer this weekend. Their, sadly, unsupervised time. I heard them in my office, giggling uncontrollably and believed them when they called back that they laughing at Mario & Luigi (of Nintendo fame) "bloopers" on YouTube.
Me, of all people, should've known better. I mean, c'mon, I was a third grader once! I remember sneaking looks at 'Our Bodies, Our Selves' and twittering with my friends over the photos of penises and breasts. I can't imagine what I would've seen if the internet, in its current form, had existed then! Probably everything my little finger could've clicked through to. ;)
But, with a savvy mama like me, I wouldn't've gotten away with it either. Not that I had to be a techno-super-sleuth to follow the phosphorescent glow that my brain-child left behind....
Lesson Learned: Not even a barely proficient third grade reader can be left unattended on the computer.
