Chicken Dance Elmo

I can’t say I’m proud of it but I also can’t, at the same time, say I’m not elated that my daughter was able to co-ordinate her hand and eyes to click on the various eggs in the Chicken Dance Elmo online game. I watched her subtly and artfully move her hand from egg to egg and clicking squarely on each one (pardon the bad metaphor).
What’s the meaning? Well: a. she’s spending too much time on the computer with me (like me); b. she’s got highly advanced hand-eye coordination and a deep understanding of the relationship between three-dimensional movement, human agency and two-dimensional interfaces; c. she somehow connects with the logic of this sweet and goofy game; d. all of the above plus a mixture of plain old growing and learning.
