It's amazing how quickly young minds learn! My ten year old, and even my eight year old, can navigate around the internet (with safeguards in place) so adeptly, and are able to figure out all kinds of things. They amaze me. I truly don't know how they learned this stuff, as we homeschool, and they are with me most all of the time. I've never really sat and taught them this stuff. It wasn't computer lab at school, just trial and error and watching me I guess. Anyway, my ten year old has this thing with e-cards. She loves sending them, and will even send them for me if I mention forgetting someone's birthday or something like that. She knows her way around several sites. I think I'm going to be able to impress her with finding one that she doesn't know about yet (always good to occasionally be able to look cool in front of your kids!! :)).

Cardfish is an exciting new personalized greeting card and messaging service that allows users to send innovative multi-media cards to their friends. You select a card, send it to a friend, and then when they open it and watch the video clip, Cardfish Phone call calls them at a specific point in the video, just when it makes it very funny. I like it.... There's even a free discount code for people to try the service out, using the word FREE as the coupon code. Fun, free, good stuff, right?

So, we'll see. I think I'll send one to my daughter, placing my phone right near her when I know she's checking email... Maybe, for a brief moment anyway, I will be "cool mom". Here's hoping, right? :)
