Sometimes I amaze myself...

Every now and then I come up with a really ingenious idea and amaze even myself. Lately Molly has been obsessed with our computer...she constantly wants to climb in the chair and play with the mouse and keyboard. After fighting with her on this for a few weeks now, trying to keep her away from it, we've started sitting with her and letting her play with stuff...but that got pretty old pretty quick. She would end up fighting us and when we tried to play programs with her, it just wouldn't work. So I came up with an idea...we got out our old keyboard and mouse, and set that up at the computer. Then we let her sit at the chair while we sat on the couch behind her, with the real mouse and keyboard (they're cordless). It's amazing! We can play the programs for her without her fighting us, and she thinks she's doing everything. I guess that's one plus for a tiny little apartment.


One of Molly's other favorite things lately are umbrellas. It's been pretty rainy here the past week, so she's had a lot of chances to play with her umbrella...or as she calls it, her "bella".
Today was also her first day of nursery. Can we get a chorus of "yayyy"?!? She did pretty well according to our amazing nursery leaders. When she first saw all of the toys, we could tell she was just in heaven. But she became a little uncertain when she realized we were no longer there. She quickly became attached to one of the leaders, but as soon as she saw David when he came to pick her up she yelled "Daddy" and burst into tears. We'll see how next week goes.

I love that idea of the fake keyboard and mouse. I'll have to see if we have a fake. I can never have a minutes peace at the computer without Aubrey all over me.

its great when we finally figure things out! She looks so cute sitting there at the computer, like she's such a big girl. How long are you going to enjoy playing her games?

At least she made it through nursery, and waited until the end to cry. Hopefully she'll go again next week, and love it!

You're such a good blogger Kimberlee. Molly is such a cutie! I'll have to try that same trick with Gage at the computer. That boy is attracted to anything electronic, I'm just glad he's not mobile yet.

Well, she definitely perked up when she started eating the Trix in snack time. Every kid loves snack time.
