On Giants' Shoulders

Sometimes Our Children Are the Giants

One of the things you find as your children get older is that they become more competent than you in some areas. My mother-in-law once told me she realized my husband was growing up when she had a flat tire and he changed it for her. My children have certainly learned computer skills at a rate that astonishes me.

My daughter helped me set up my blog, but then she left for a couple of days. Today she came back and helped me put links on the site. One of the links is to her own Xanga site. So if you'd like to meet the rest of the family, so to speak, you can travel there, or to my niece Amanda's Xanga site. Abby's site has links to her webpage where there are some neat pictures (of sheep, horses, people, etc). It also has copies of some of Abby's poetry (in case there's a poetry loving editor out there).

Anyway thanks to my daughter, the giant, for her help. I'm certain to need it over and over again. By the way if you do look at the pictures you'll see that calling my daughter a giant is metaphorical only. While she's now taller than me, she's very normal sized.

And speaking of kids and their computer savvy, tonight after Betsy had constructed a clubhouse in the basement, Anne sailed by and said, "But does it have a firewall and spam protection?" :-)

And the html sleuth had to fix my previous posts thing. It wasn't just the command you sent me, I was missing a quotation mark so it was bleeding into the next line.
