I Browse

The title of this entry is an inside joke. We’ve been teaching Callie the names of facial features. She recently learned eyebrows.

At the same time Cora has been playing her first computer games: Winnie the Pooh, Reader Rabbit, etc. These games require her to use the mouse…move the pointer to some part of the screen and click.

I hadn’t realized how these games were preparing her for everything she’d need to know on the World Wide Web, but when I had a browser open to my home page she spotted a picture of herself in a thumbnail and she now knew enough about computer interfaces to use the mouse and move the pointer and click on the picture. That took her to, and from there she proceeded to browse my photostream.

Cool, my baby surfed the web. She browsed.
