Today's children are good with technology whether it be tablets, computers, gaming consoles, or cell phones. For the longest time, Mouse didn't seem particularly interested in any of them. Even despite her friends' interest in them. It's only been in the last year or so Mouse has taken to the tablet. She's quite a pro at finding her games or watching her favorite cartoons. As parents who know some of the pitfalls of online access, my husband and I are both very aware of what she's accessing and when (although, once she did purchase a couple episodes of Bubble Guppies before we had a chance to stop her--and we have taken measures to avoid that happening again).
Last summer Mouse took an interest in taking photos with our cell phones. She especially likes to take selfies. Children bring such an interesting perspective to life, don't they? I thought I would share some of Mouse's photos with you today (with her permission):
