Smarter than a 3rd Grader …. Not so much

I’m not sure if you noticed you could not access my blog for the last 24 hours. If you did, you might wonder why. I learned a lesson yesterday that I fully expected to learn at some point in the next two years, but really, I THOUGHT I had two more years. My blog was infiltrated by little people!!! Okay, that’s a little dramatic, but I’m trying to keep up with Kate.

Reilly’s buddy Owen has his own computer, he is a smart, clever little guy and for whatever reason started searching on Google for stuff related to our family. He found MOTYA!!!! Much to my surprise he spent some time reading my blog and even commented on several posts. NO, you can’t see them because I pulled most, if not all of them down.  Anyway, I was happy to expose to him through my stories that the tooth fairy is not real, it’s me or in his case, his mom. And as Owen pointed out “I take teeth”.  Nice. I’m really hoping he doesn’t share that one with Reilly since Reilly has only lost a couple of teeth and Owen has lost almost all of his.  Wow.

Now I’m not naïve enough to think that Owen didn’t have every right in the world to be looking at the site, I was just so surprised he had the ability to do so – not only the tools but to find it, read it and comment on it.

Kids are smarter than you give them credit for – sometimes – and this next generation, as I talk about them when I do presentations, they think differently. Maybe Apple had that right all along too.  Lesson learned all the way around on this one, I’m going to open it back up. I’m going to try not to censor what I write b/c I would never want the kids to be hurt by something someone else read. This blog is really for them although I don’t suspect I will really share it with them until they are much older. I think one day they will totally value it, but that could be when they have their own family. We’ll see. In the meantime, I wanted to open it back up because to my happiness there were a handful of people that asked me why they needed a login. I love the loyal followers that I have and I thank you guys for letting me know you are there.
