Tuesday night, I participated in my first Girls’ Night Out. Boy was that interesting!
Mom It Forward hosts the GNO every Tuesday night between 9 and 11 on TweetGrid. I had never participated in a live-streaming, tweet-a-thon and had no idea what to expect. At first, I was a little scared. The screen was moving so fast I couldn’t keep up.
The topic of the night was internet safety. Seeing that E is only 19 (almost 20) months old, I figured I really wouldn’t have anything to contribute. Of course, I was wrong.
Here is what I learned:
- Even private blogs are visible if someone has your RSS feed.
- Parents are way smarter than you give them credit for. They are on the up and up on everything you do. Even if they never mention it!
- There are approximately 2.5 computers in every household. Guess that half of computer is for the half of child every household has.
- When E is old enough, there will be NO computer in his room. The computer MUST be in a common area with a huge ass monitor.
- Speaking of E, he will never be allowed online alone until he’s in college. Even then, I will probably spy on him!
And here is how I won my lovely award.
I was asked by fellow “twitter” (is that even a word?!) if I was speaking from experience about my younger online shenanigans. I simply responded “Who me?”. And thus, the Master of “Innocent Look” was born. Apparently, I can bat my eyes through the interwebs.
Wanna earn your own award at next week’s GNO? It’s very possible with these ladies! Join us and see what we might have in store for you.
Thanks to Jenn at Frugal Upstate and Monica at Mommy Brain Reports for my latest award! I will always treasure this one.
