So this morning I am officially the mom of a teenager. And I’m wondering: how the heck did that happen. Plus, my teenager happens to be heading to camp. Yes, on his birthday. But I don’t think he minds. In fact, I think it’s a pretty cool birthday present.
In other milestone news, someone has some teeth issues:
All she wants for her birthday is her two front teeth. Do you like the artistic nature of the picture? It’s from Chuck E. Cheese. Ha!
And at long last I have joined the dark side e-readers. For my birthday (we’re a mid to late summer birthday family), I got a Kindle. Do I love it? Yes, yes I do. It’s actually very easy on the eyes. (I mean to read, but it’s also a nice looking device as well.) I’ve noticed a few formatting glitches, but that doesn’t really bother me. The true downside?
It’s far, far too easy to buy books.

Happy birthday to Andrew!
Great picture of Kyra — even without her front teeth, she is beautiful!
Belated b-day greetings to Andrew!
Belated b-day greetings to you! Hope you enjoy the Kindle… M. is in love with his.
Birthdays to remember!
So which Kindle is it? 1, 2, or the big one?Format glitches? I bet. Formatting for the Kindle is barely Beta. Grump.
Question, how important do you think curly quotes are when you are reading?
It’s the Kindle 2 and I still have much love for it. I’m actually reading much more after a long day on the computer vs. less.
Re: curly quotes. I checked all the books/samples I’ve downloaded so far and they all have them. Personally, I like them (although I know they can be a pain, formatting wise), but I’d probably read without them.
