It's been 12 weeks for me, and she gets more gorgeous by the day! She's discovered her voice and will already squeal with delight when something takes her fancy! My first new love since my daughter, her aunty, was born 25 years ago next month! I'm looking forward to watching her grow and hope I live long enough to see her blossom into womanhood. What a joyous time we have in front of us, RP!

Got six grandchildren. Just you wait until a three-year old leans over your shoulder, and says "you need a double click there, Grandpa." It happened!

I realise I didn't include an option "over 90". Apologies - I hope no one feels excluded! Wink

One thing I've noticed as I've got older, and aquired grandchildren, is how, at gatherings of older people, we seperate into two big groups: those who talk about their fabulous holidays and house improvements, and those who talk about grandchildren.

Anyway- welcome to the club WhoDo. You will find in a year's time that you need to give serious thought to a new camera. With many digital cameras when you take pictures of children you get an annoying number of blank frames, because when you press the shutter button, by the time the camera gets round to taking the picture the child is somewhere else. This is especially so indoors, where the light may be poor, and I found that an SLR was the best. They use a different focus detection technology from compacts.

I know of another 13 year old running around this forum, but he hasn't seem to have made his appearance in this topic, so I guess you can take the honor of the youngest. Smile

I'm just 62 and have a 2 year old AMD 2.4MHz computer that I bought from my pocket money too.

LOL, my wife was in a good mood that day - (she wears the trousers around here) Very Happy

<10 is pretty young for running linux. great job getting her started.

two of my friends around here have a 5 year old daughter. I booted puppy on her computer once to explain that there where different types of systems. she still uses xp because that's what her games run under.

Sounds like we should shoot for ~5 year to get her going on puppy also.

My daughter is 6 and she uses puppy sometimes to play online Bratz games, watch Bratz utube videos and she also writes with abiword, when she can't use her mom's xp pc, because shes on it. At this point in life she can't tell the difference, well once she like puppy over xp when I had that "citrus icewm theme installed" I made, she really loved the colours.

thanks ttuuxxx, I'll have to look up the bratz games and videos for her.

your comment "she can't tell the difference" reminds me of having read about young children learning two spoken languages early in life. I hear they tend to think in either language interchangeably. Perhaps the same can be said of OS's.

Thats true I once dated this french model who had a little girl around the age of 4, one day her grandmother came over with her latest boyfriend, he was Italian, so he spoke italian to her, within about 1 hr, she was almost speaking fluently and after 3hrs she was talking Italian perfectly, It could be because Italian and French are similar dialects, or it could be the age, I can speak french also and read a bit of Italian/Spanish but after 3hrs I had no clue how to speak Italian unlike 4yr old.
