I LOVE the internet. I honestly can't imagine my life without it. I see keeping pace with my kids and technology as an enjoyable pastime, rather than yet another parenting task. Honestly, my day would not be complete without a good cup of coffee, Facebook, Twitter, and blogs.
Now that I have that established, here's an aside...
My five year old: "Click on that one!! Click 'add me'!!"
His sister's seven year old friend: "No!!! He's already one of my friends!"
friend (frend) noun
Friend = Janey, known since preschool, taken swimming lessons together, been to all of eachother's birthdays for the past four years, wrote eachother's names a thousand times on "BFF" lists, wore matching clothes to school, swapped hair ties (to name only a few things)
Friend = strangerwhoyouknownothingabout123
