Our computer life

I now know that my four-year-old has integrated too much computer-speak into his vocabulary.

High winds have knocked our HDTV antenna off kilter on top of the house, so some of our TV channels momentarily freeze or pixelate. My husband needs to get on top of the house and fix it, especially before the Super Bowl.

Michael was watching Danny Phantom and said, "Mom, there's something wrong with the TV.". I replied, "I know". So he asks me, "Is it a virus?".

The kid is already familiar with computer virus scanning and warnings of what a computer virus could do (wipe out his Toon Town!!!), but he doesn't quite get that not everything is a computer. :)
