Computer Nerds

There’s been a long-held notion that I’m a nerd. Especially when it comes to computers. Natural, I guess, seeing as that’s how I make my living. Julie often says that I’m “nerding out” when I’ve got one or more laptop lids open, doing my thing. Appropriate I guess.

Abigail and Grace have long lamented the fact that they don’t have their “own” laptops so that they can go out on the interwebs as they please. When reminded that they cost about $1000, Grace went off pouting, while Abby proudly exclaimed that she’s going to start saving. If that doesn’t perfectly demonstrate the 2 sisters, I don’t know what does.

Both girls like to play “Spawn of Satan,” . . . errr . . . I mean Webkinz whenever they can. It all starts innocently enough. You buy these cute, cuddly little animals that the new owner can adopt. But then you need to register them online. And then you need to give them clothes. And bathe them. And entertain them. And buy expensive jeans for them. And ground them. And so on. They just can’t understand why we don’t simply give them the password to the computer so that they can do as they please. Turning into a computer nerd is one reason. Another is . . . well . . . the interwebs.

We found this by the computer a couple of weeks ago:

Abby's sneaky note!

You certainly can’t blame them for trying.

  1. I can not stop laughing and can’t get a hold of Troy (out of town) to tell him. We have 2 very persistent girls trying to get the passwords to log on, I ‘m impressed!

  2. LMAO!!! This is really a funny post. Poor Brian & Julie. If they are already forging names you just wait when they are “actual” teenagers and really learn to manipulate. This was actually a pretty decent first try. I can’t wait to see what they come up wit next. Good luck!

  3. Oh my gosh! I am dying laughing. that is not only hilarious but very creative! I am sure this will not be the last time…they may not have tricked you now but wait till their handwriting gets better! Watch out! 🙂

  4. Your children are appealing to the wrong part of the family. Don’t they know that their Aunt Susi is a ringer for the sympathy card?

    All I need is a plea.

    Love you guys and support what you are doing.

    What is the baby’s name by the way? Steven Seth or Brian Henry?


  5. LOL The note is perfect!!!! I am sure our kids will be doing this same thing someday. I’m afraid my handwriting looks like that, so I bet Clark would have just filled in the password. Okay he’s too smart, but seriously it’s only cause she didn’t sign it “love ya” or something more romantic than “sined.” Don’t they know the pet names? cute. Definitely one sticky for the scrapbook. Miss you guys!

  6. I think this is one of the best posts EVER! I am totally bustin a rib over this one! My high school seniors couldn’t even forge that good when I taught…so yeah…watch out! 🙂 Very clever…and very cheeky! I like their style! 🙂
