Special Guest Blogger

Have you noticed my mommy hasn’t been blogging as much lately? Me too. I don’t know if she’s told you, but she can’t use her computer when I’m around because I like to hijack it!

Forget all those baby toys, there’s nothing like computer keys and screens.
First I sneak my fingers on the lid when she’s not looking. I don’t let her see my face because then she’d know its me. If she catches me she says, “Aster, nooo touch.” And I pretend like I’m listening.
Then I sneak around to the other side.
That is when I try the sweet and curious look.
I know how to work it. I act like I’m interested in the photos. I take mommy’s finger and point to things. It usually works.
But not always. So sometimes I just grab the thing!!!

I know I’m gonna get in trouble but its worth it when you’re obsessed with screens, lights and buttons.

Uh oh, I gotta go! I hear mommy coming…

    Aster, how are you at writing devos? Next time you get a chance to hijack the laptop, try your hand at writing a devotion after you update mommy's FaceBook status.
