Svet Wants To Write, Too!

The moment she learned to climb, the first "summit" she tried to conquer was my computer table. In fact, right now, she is standing in front of me as I type this, with me straining to see what I was typing and the keyboard in my lap. I allow her because otherwise, she would scream until she is on top of the table. Little brat. She knows I hate noise while working. She is sitting now, facing me, looking at me as if saying, "I need to take over this space fully, which means YOU GET OUT of your chair". *sigh*

We're also constantly battling on who should click the mouse, and even though I found a solution for this (albeit temporary) by giving her another mouse (an old one I don't use), she insists on using the one I AM using. It's the same situation with the keyboard. I have tried giving her the old one that I ceased to use a while ago because the keys are already hard to type on, but it seems like she wants everything that I use for work. When I try to tell her off her by saying firmly "No baby!", she would just utter the single sound "Ahhh..." (like she's scolding me), and I'm defeated. Enfant terrible.

I'm at serious loss here. She has lots of toys to play with, tons of snacks to eat, her dad to pester. But she insists to stay here on top of my table. ESPECIALLY WHILE I AM WORKING. When the computer is turned off, she doesn't go near it. Perhaps I should buy her her own? Hah. Wishful thinking. Toy computers will never work, with the way things look. *sigh*. Hmmm, she actually got off a minute ago. Darn it! I checked on her and she was tinkering with the cellphone, trying to dial numbers and putting it in her ears to hear if there's any sound coming off it. Auuugghhh.. Was I this frustrating when I was a toddler?! But who can stay angry with this mischievous face?

Children today are very much different from the kids that we once were. They love playing with gadgets. My son also uses the PC after I work to play online games, and he's only turning three this July. He's also messed a lot of things in my cell phone (deleted phone numbers and folders, added new names and numbers in my phone book, deleted a game, etc.). The sad thing is we can't do anything about it because the truth is we also enjoy seeing them do these things.

@Tetcha: yes, right! We enjoy watching them do these things. Our little "techies".

@Kaye: haha! Si Yz rin ganyan. alam nya kung ano yung working sa hindi. I gave her a small mouse and a small keyboard. But she doesn't like it because she knows how they should work. she knows that if she move the mouse, the arrow will move too. She already know how to type her nickname, YZ.

Ganun talaga. Sabi nga, kung ano ginagawa ng matanda, gagayahin ng bata. So kung ano ang kinukutingting mo, yun din gusto nilang laruin. hay, mischievous talaga.

So how do you keep her from you? how can you work with her "bugging" you around? hehe.
