Just Google It, Mama

My son is playing school with his Little People school set.

And he tells me: This is my school.

And puts a red dot made out of Magneatos on it.

He then tells me: I’m AT school.

And he puts a green dot at school.

And suddenly I realize.  He’s reenacting Google Maps. 

And he confirms it with a LIKE DUH, MAMA look.

PS. I’m not sure what the yellow dot is.  But I haven’t known Google Maps for my ENTIRE LIFE so perhaps I have just forgotten that the yellow dot means the computer-literate, Facebook-Twitter-versed, I-type-HELLO-when-I-feel-like-it, three-year-old is at school right now.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. He’s so tweeting about you and your belated Google realization now. Well, actually, maybe in five minutes, because he has to hit up tumblr first, right after updating a Wikipedia entry. FYI.
