a few weeks ago, josh was asking Siri a question on his phone when eleanor piped up and asked to talk with Siri. josh handed her his phone and before we knew it, eleanor was asking Siri all sorts of questions. it was kind of hysterical, mostly because Siri kept calling eleanor “eleanER” after introduced herself and also because Siri would often reply to her questions with statements like, “i didn’t quite get that.” it can sometimes be hard to catch everything a 3 year old is saying. ;)
samson wanted in on the action too, and within a few minutes, both of them somehow decided to take their conversations behind the sofa in their nursery. we stood in the doorway of their room for maybe ten minutes trying not to laugh listening to them gab away with their new computer friend. i grabbed my video camera towards the end and caught the end tail of their little chats and had to share a few snippets today because it was so cute. it’s fascinating just to see how far we’ve come the last few years with technology. and then to see my 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 year olds interact with it all is even more fascinating. i wonder what their world is going to be like in terms of technology when they are older. it’s all kind off crazy weird when you think about it. but for now, i’ll just enjoy eleanor lion “roarrrrr”-ing at Siri.
