What are your thoughts on putting your children’s names and images on line for all to see?
Something in me stops me from doing it. Part of it is about protecting their privacy another part is just trying to protect them from danger. Effective protection? I don’t know, but I’m doing it anyway.
But I’m tired of calling them the oldest, the daughter, the youngest in these posts. So I’m going to the code names we use for fun in our house anyway. Here are the introductions:
Dirt Diver: He’s 7, an early riser, loves knights and chess, is deep into his first YAFL football season, and has no fear of picking up bugs, lizards, etc. He has a way of making the world a happy place through his sense of humor, his smile, his loving heart. Favorite digital pursuits: all things Mario, computer chess, numerous iPhone apps.
Rose Red: She’s 9, loves to read mysteries (recommendations welcomed), and is the most caring person I’ve ever known. If I ever needed a friend, she is who I would pick. She’s also very crafty — in an arts-and-crafts kind of way. Favorite digital pursuits: Roku surfing for favorite TV shows, Webkinz, Word Mole on Dad’s Blackberry.
Cool Breeze: He turned 12 this summer. His true loves are football, video games, dinosaurs and sports talk radio. He is extremely driven and competitive, but he’s got a soft heart for his family. He’s also got a mind like a steel trap. If I need to know anything about anything, I ask him first. Favorite digital pursuits: the PS3 he saved up for on his own, Zelda and the Phantom Hourglass on the DSi, and iTunes.
Dog Patch: He’s the top. Loves surfing, coaching football and stock market analysis. Favorite digital pursuits: gadgets.
Me, I’m Snake Doc, but you know my real name so no need for the code.
