I always feel like, somebody's waaatching meeee....

Jaysen loves to google.
If you look at his left hand in the above pic, you can actually see him stimming.
He will google anything on his mind... ad nauseam.
Usually it's something to do with Mario, or Baby Einstein.

I was really hoping we were getting out of the Baby Einstein thing, but he seems to have revisited it in full force lately. But that's not the point of this post.

Jaysen recently learned how to create folders on his computer. 'Cuz he's a geek like that. He made one for Baby Einstein, so he was googling pictures of Baby Einstein VHS tapes to archive, when he came across the muthaload.

His eyes bugged out at this picture:

I thought that pic looked reeeeally familiar, so I swooped in for a closer look.
Guess where he found it?
Yep- here at The Quirk Factor.

My son had pulled up my own blog in a Google search.
How's that for some tweakiness? I totally felt like I was staring straight down the rabbit hole.

Once I pointed it out, he recognized my Lenore girl (upper left corner) and wanted to see all the pictures I had on the blog (once he realized there was not a whole lot of exciting information about Baby Einstein). I showed him how to browse by category, and we spent about an hour just looking at the pictures and revisiting memory lane. We reminisced about family vacations, and the unfabulous times when "Mom cried" because of the loss of beloved furballs like Gacy and Tiki. He also busted me on some profane language- does that say crap? Crap?!? Uh, yeah. Sorry.

This wasn't the first time he's ever seen my blog, but it's the first time he's ever found it on his own, and taken any time actually going through it. It was different, because there was a sincere interest. Despite the fact I was "outed" by my own son, we had a really good time. Now I'm thinking of how I can get him to guest post.

A whole other reason to blog.

Now I am horrified that my children will find and read my blog. Thanks. Thanks a lot! LOL

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

That's pretty freaky that he found you by Googling! Hope he wants to guest post sometime!

How are we doing with the new Baby Einstein collection, by the way?

Ahh... the new Baby Einstein collection. Of course it's never going to be "complete", but I thought it was funny that he was looking for a specific Baby Mozart a couple days ago, and said "Wow. I have a lot of Mozarts!" Uh... yes. You do. Lol.

He just convinced me to order 2 more (Wordsworth and VanGogh with the CD) from Amazon. He's still looking for the "different" ones, in other languages, some detail on the box is different, or the packaging is unique. It's a neverending quest. His quest for the Holy VHS. :)
