After school the other day, Kyle told me that he had someone's email address from his bus and he needed help with his email. I couldn't read a bit of the address scribbled on the smallest piece of paper I have ever seen. We sent off an email to some Gmail account and probably confused some stranger. Luckily, his email address is his full name so the friend could remember his email without a small piece of paper.
Today, I checked on the account. I wanted to make sure the person emailing him was not the bus driver. I smiled when I saw it was to an Abby.
This is their email exchange.
hi abby,I like piedo you have a ipod?
No. But I love pie.
So sweet. Second grade. His first email to a girl. I will try to not be too nosy as he moves into his teen years. But, I will get into his business to keep him safe, especially on the Internet.
Maybe I should be teaching him to bake a pie!
