Esmé has truly grown up in the “google” age. She’s used to me following up every “I don’t know” with a “Let’s look up the answer online.”
So when she asks a question like, “When is Jesus coming?” and I say no one knows for sure, she is quick to respond that surely we can find out the answer on the computer!
We’ve recently reached a new era where she is reading with ease and looking up her own answers online. I have to be careful what I write on this blog now, because it’s easy to overstep the boundaries of what SHE wants to share. I have to be careful who I friend on Facebook, because she reads my Facebook feeds. And I can’t just set her up on a “safe” site and walk away, because I have no idea where her clicks will land her.
