Simon and the Incredibles

I’ve posted before about how Tristan’s increasing facility with the computer never fails to amaze me. Now, of course, Simon is hot on his heels.

Beloved has just set him up with his favourite Incredibles game, and he is clicking contentedly when suddenly he complains, “Mom! The game shut down!” This is a problem with our Cars game. It’s incompatible with our video card and tends to shut down randomly. We haven’t had the same problem with the Incredibles, though.

“What were you doing when it shut down?” troubleshoots Beloved.

“I clicked on exit and it shut down!” Simon replies indignantly.

Apparently there are nuances to the language that one has to acquire, at the tender age of three, before being completely successful with technology. The meaning of ‘exit’, for starters.

What a terrific story – the kind you’ll love to share with his friends when he’s more tech savvy than all of us combined someday!

Hee hee 🙂 It seems so strange that kids so young can use a computer!
Did the second interview post 🙂

Oh, I’m sure that once he gets ‘exit’ figured out, there’ll be no stopping him. What was the name of that movie where the kid hacks into a computer and almost starts a war? Not that your angels would do anything like that though…
