I was walking past Max's room and heard him talking on the new toy cell phone that Santa brought him for Christmas. The conversation went something like this;
"Hi Deef Dobbs, How you Deef Dobbs? What doin' Deef Dobbs? New phone Deef Dobbs. Like I phone Deef Dobbs? O.K. Deef Dobbs. See ya Deef Dobbs. Bye bye Deef Dobbs."
"Hey Max" I said "Who are you talking to?"
"Deef Dobbs" he says.
Then it dawns on me, he is talking to Steve Jobs, as in Apple computer Steve Jobs.
I had no idea they knew each other. Max has several conversations a day with Mr. Jobs.
You may wonder why my two year old knows Steve Jobs. I'm pretty sure they were introduced by his 12 year old, Apple obsessed, computer geek, brother.
CJ will sit down at the computer with Max and they will watch videos on you tube of anything related to Apple computers.
We go into the Apple store, and Max will get really excited over the iMac and iPhone. He even knows the difference between the iPod nano and iPod shuffle. I think most two year olds would just try to eat them.
CJ is very technologically gifted. He has been using the computer since before he was 2. He would discover programs on my computer (that I had no idea were there), and figure out how to use them. I am always so amazed at his understanding of technical things. He reads software tutorial manuals for fun. Seriously.
When CJ was 10, we were at a family party, and someone asked him if he had a girlfriend to which he replied "There are more interesting things than girls, like technology" (He will NEVER live down that comment)
We recently got the new operating system for my computer.
CJ was overjoyed. He could hardly contain his excitement!
I will admit there are parts of it that are really cool, but I've been discovering a few things that have been a problem, like it dumped my really old operating system which I was using to open my even older version of Photoshop. It also did something weird to my e mail, I'll need to have CJ fix it for me.
The desktop of my computer is really cluttered with different documents and files. It kind of bugs me to have it like this, but I do have a general idea of where everything is, and I have no plans of changing it.
Yesterday, CJ comes into my office and said "Mom, you really need to clean up your desktop, it's not very Leopard-like"
O.K. CJ how about your room? It's not very Leopard-like either.
CJ's room is subject worth an entire post of it's own. Maybe later.
