La Compu

A couple of days ago, Primo climbed up on his chair at the dining room table, made himself comfortable in front of my MacBook and then yelled:

"¡No! ¡La compu no! ¡No toque el monitor! ¡Hay que esperar! ¡Bájese de ahí!"

(Translation: No! Not the computer! Don't touch the monitor! You have to wait! Get down from there!)

Then he looked at me expectantly.

Me: Dude, I was going to let you use the computer. Sheesh.

I wasn't sure if I should be impressed that he strung so many phrases together, because really, it was nothing more than a perfect impression of Mama.

[That boy loves my computer, my cell phone (though I have to be careful because he racked up $20 in cell phone charges one month), calculators, the digital camera, and, needless to say, the iPod Touch. Both of the boys love looking at photos on the Touch and especially love flicking them back and forth on the screen. I got them toy cell phones in an attempt to reclaim mine, but they were not fooled for an instant.]

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm trying to update it more often, so hopefully there will be more to read at some point.

Funny about the computer and all things electronic. My son, who is now 7 months old, loves the computer, the monitor, the keyboard, and especially cords. His fascination with cords is particulary nerve wracking as he tends to express his devotion to these objects by eating them!
