Today I decided to set my son up with his own email account.  I have thought about this for a while and after weighing the pros and cons decided to go ahead and let him do it.  I figured it's better now, when the kid is young and has nothing to hide, to teach him to be open about his internet use, then wait until he's a teenager and everything's all secretive.  He was also told that in order to be allowed to use email, mommy and daddy have to know his password at all times and can look at his account whenever we wanted.  I even have it linked to mine so that in case he decided to change something, I can override it.

So after he decided on his silly username and I gave him the email accounts of everyone in the family, he decided to write his aunt and uncle a letter.   A poem rather.  No hi's, hello's, how are ya's.  Just a poem.  That he made up as he went along.  And it goes something like this:

The water sparkles in the sun. 
The wind blows in the trees. 
The man drinks the wine.
The kid drinks the soda. 
The Squirrel eats the nuts,
The cat eats the Squirrel. 
The baby eats a lot! 

I really liked it!  And if this is just a glimpse of things to come, then I'm kicking myself for not starting this sooner.  He is a wonderful boy and yes, I am partial, as all mothers should be.  I really enjoy his silliness and his viewpoint on all things big and small. :)
