IMing With My 7-Year Old

IMMy son has a Gmail account. Gmail is integrated with the Google instant messenger, Gtalk, so when James sees me online, he likes to chat.

This afternoon, James' cousin told him about this cool video game he discovered online. Apparently there are aliens and stuff, so James tried to download the free trial. This led him to some frustration and the following IM exchange while he hacked away at the basement computer and I worked on my laptop upstairs.

It's on

Go to Kids Games and you will see Fizzball.

You can do the 1 hour free trial and download the game.

James sent me an email asking me about it and I did my best to answer but no matter how poor the spelling i made out everything he wanted to tell me.

Good egg that kid!!

He uses Firefox, which automatically spell checks. I just have to teach him what it means when the word is underlined in red.
