I guess I am not a good actress

So - my kids figured out the password to our computer. My husband changed it and added in a password hint. My daughter comes into the kitchen while I am making dinner and says "Daddy made the password hint Mommy's Body". I am thinking - Now what did he do.... Then she says "So I tried Sick and I tried Tired but they didn't work!"

So much for keeping and upbeat attitude and not letting my kids see how I am feeling...

I went to check the hint myself and say it said Mommy's Bday - So I guess I was wrong about my kids being able to read English.

2 images shattered at once....

They are some smart kids, too bad they figured it out but it's funny what they said.

Pesach is almost here

I guess this gives a vote for the Rabonim who claim that internet at home is almost impossible to keep away from the kids, so rather lock it up, or not have it at home....

Kids will be kids, maybe talk to them and see why they said those things

noch - they are smart - and i guess that would have been a good question - but she was so accurate...caught me off guard. Definitely lock the comp. I already told the kids that they were/are not allowed to use the stove/oven alone because it is dangerous and they need to learn how to do things properly first - and even then I have to watch many times before they are trusted - same with the computer - i told them that it is hard to understand - but it is dangerous to them in the same way - only to their neshama and they cant' ever touch it by themselves (though it is passworded) until they are old enough for mommy to show them how it works and how to use it safely.. So for now I ocassionally have been known to let them see youtube clips of yeshiva boys choir....

married - I *know* why she said it- beacuse it seems true to her - I am physically and emotionally exhausted and I have no energy..even before this whole pregnancy thing i was sick for about 3 weeks with something very treatable but undiagnosed by the dr (switched drs...)but that is a different story - so mommy has been sleeping a lot for a long time now...

Now I was thinking your kids had innocent suggestions, but maybe your husband has a freaky mind! LOL. Oh well, I guess your birthday is a lot tamer than what it could have been.
