Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Computer Time

We have a lap top that is set up in our family room for the girls to use.  It's a little slow, but it works fine once it gets running.  If you ask La Nina about it, she'll tell you it's broken, because she doesn't have the patience to wait for it.  However, if you ask Maggie about the computer, she gets really quiet.  

Why?  Because she has no interest in letting her sister know the lap top works just fine.  That would mean she'd have to share and right now, the Magster has the computer to herself.   Maggie's new thing is to wait for her sister to leave for school in the morning and hit the computer as soon as the door closes.  Then she plays on PBSKids and Disney for an hour or so every morning.  She is able to navigate around, figure out the games and watch videos.  

Occasionally the Magster can't figure out a game or once the battery started to die and she needed a little help.  Otherwise when she's on the computer, she's completely self-sufficient.  

While I find this whole charade amusing, I wonder how long she can keep it up?  Will her sister go ballistic when she figures out the game?  And what will happen when La Nina has to ask her sister for help on a game?  It could be ugly.
