Last night JJ was practising typing his words on the computer (I also made him write them). He was going quite well, as well as he could with the dodgy keyboard that doesn’t recognise when you’re pressing on some letters, until he started completely losing it. I was in the kitchen preparing dinner and ignored him for a bit then the noise reached a crescendo that I couldn’t stand any more.
I went out to see what the problem was and he told me he was really upset about the squiggly red and green lines underneath the words. (For those unfamiliar with Word, if you have spelling and grammar checking as you type turned on it creates these squiggly lines if it thinks your spelling and/or grammar is incorrect.)
As dinner was nearly ready I told him to shut down the computer and explained to him that all he had needed to do was ask me if I could get rid of the squiggly lines.
Talk about sweating the small stuff!
