DYLANism: Who is buying all this Stuff?
Sunday I was on the phone with Dylan’s Grandma when that Stuffies commercial came on (How much stuff can you stuff in a stuffy…). We see this commercial a lot on the all kids TV channels we watch.
Dylan saw the commercial and grabbed her little Curious George drawing book and asked me how to spell the word ‘Stuffies’. I should have heard her wheels turning.
I politely told her I was on the phone with her Grandma and couldn’t talk right now.
So Dylan went to find Mom.
When I got off the phone Dylan told me I could order her a Stuffy for her birthday.
I told her to tell her Aunt Sue or Grandmother as Christmas is a lot closer.
She says, “No Dad, you don’t understand. You can order me one for my birthday right now“and she leads me by the hand back to my office.
I get in my office at home and there on my computer screen is the Stuffies’ web site.
Dylan evidently took the spelling for Stuffies and did a search for the toy, found the web site on the search, pulled the Stuffies web site up and found the one for her.
I thought this amazing for two reasons.
First, what does a kindergartener know about doing a Search on the computer to find something, let alone reading what comes up under the search and choosing the right link? I didn’t teach her.
Second, this girl saw something she wanted and made a plan to go get it. She just didn’t ask and bat her eyes like a Princess. She made a logical plan on how to make it easy for Mom and Dad fill her wish.
First grade computer class my butt!
I better hide the credit cards!
Now I am a new Dad, is this unusual in this day and age or do you know of some equally amazing feats?
