A Little Computer Drama



…starring Josh.

 

Yesterday, while Zoë playing on the computer, either she or Josh must have pulled something and the monitor just died. I knew nothing was wrong with the PC, but it was a good excuse to get them out of the study and away from the PC screen. In case you were wondering, they were on the Playhouse Disney website. Totally addicted, both Josh and Zoë. They know how to turn on the computer by themselves and click onto the site (through an icon on the desktop). Anytime it gets quiet around here, I know just where to look for them.

 

Josh was VERY upset that he couldn’t play anymore. He blamed Zoë for what happened and was not happy that he didn’t get to even play before the monitor shut down. He was devastated, inconsolable. Mommy, but I LOVE the computer! What will I do now? Even after telling him that we’ll somehow get it fixed, but that he should do something else in the meantime. But that would be so boring! I LOVE the computer! The computer is the most fun! I don’t like you, Zoë. I won’t play with you ever again!

 

Zoë, who was totally over it and had moved on to other things, went to the shoe cabinet, took out her shoes, put them on. She grabbed my bag, threw a couple of toys in, then walked to the door, saying,”Bye-bye, KoKo. Bye-bye, Yaya. Bye-bye, Mommy!”

Yaya (our helper): Where are you going, Zoë?

Zoë: China! Bye-bye! (Reaching up to open the door)

 

Josh looked up and his face started to crumple. He thought that Zoë was going away because he was not being nice to her!

Josh: Don’t go, Zoë. I love you! Don’t go. Come back.

Zoë: No, I go to China.

Josh: No, Zoë! I love you, come back! *In tears now*

Zoë: Okay.

 

I had to fight to keep a straight face. I was so torn between awww and laughing out loud. These two, they’re just a smorgasbord of non-stop entertainment around here. The rush of bungee-jumping is nothing compared to simple every day life with these two little ones.

Oh, how CUTE!!!! Sometimes it just tears at my heart, thinking about the emotions my little ones must be feeling...absolute panic that he drove his sister out the door. Hahahaha

I was really surprised to read about your helper...YaYa is the name that SiuJeun has given to his big sister! LOL

Dandy said...

Bwahahaha! That is hilarious. I'm going to say that now. Bye, bye, I go to China.

And how cute is it that he loves his sister so much.

Zoe packed her bags!! That is amazing how much of an imagination she has. I'm sure it was a great feeling to see just how much he really cares for his little sister.

Wanda said...

That is just too cute. Makes me want Milana to grow up a bit so they can start communicating.

I love it that kids so young are so computer savvy. It's scary and great all at the same time.

E was online the other day and ended downloading a new game - HOW DID SHE KNOW HOW TO DO THAT?!?!?!

Nezzy said...

I often had to leave the room with my two during those, "I go to China" moments. Heeeheehee! Great story, I'm laughing here. Thanks, I needed that. No sun today....It's been over a week since I have felt any warm rays upon my face. Think the computer will act as a SAD light???

Have a great day and keep those precious tales commin'. God bless!!!

Veronica Lee said...

I totally agree with Lindy. It scares me too.

golonghorns said...

Awww, that was precious. Check out storyline online we just discovered it yesterday it is through the screen actor's guild and different actors read kids books. (I plan to blog about it at some point.) Since I've been sick this was a great activity for my son that I felt good about his computer time. He loves PBS kids and noggin way too much!

Cole is very smart with computers too. He wanted to print out some dinosaur pictures to color and I told him to wait a minute and when I finally got to my laptop, he had already found the pictures and printed them himself. Freaked me out because I had NO idea he knew how to do that. When I asked him how he knew what to do, he said, "I've been watching you when you do it". I totally love that....he can't follow simple instructions like "please get undressed and get in the tub" but he can watch me a couple times on the computer and he knows exactly what to do.

That's so cute that he didn't want Zoe to leave. My kids? They would've been shoving the other one out the door screaming "and don't come back"

Mahmee said...

Well, shucks...that was an awfully sweet story. I love that. And Zoe...clearly understands what a girl needs to travel...just some shoes and a bag with some toys. Ha ha.
Our daughter crashed our PC TWICE playing Noggin/Nick Jr games/videos. We think she was clicking into other things, etc. On the new laptop, she actually has her own session where she can't get out to anything else. I'm amazed how computer savvy very young children are.

Sometimes there is nothing better then sitting back and watching the drama between your kids!

OH.MY.GOSH. That is the cutest exchange EVER!! I can just hear Zoe saying "No I go to China". HAHAHA!! Wow, that really put a smile on my face. You're right, a day with kids is better than anything.

I'll say one thing about your daughter: she knows how to get a boy to cry. That is a MAJOR skill in the dating department. LOL! Sure, she's a wee one now, but that just means more time to hone her skills! ;-)
