Emilia is crazy about gadgets. She was only one month old when she started to go nuts for tv remotes. When we ran out of ideas on how to entertain her, we would hand the remote to her and voila', a big smile would appear on her face. Other gadgety things that have always put a big smile on her face are the oven, the light switches, the ipod, and let's not even begin to talk about her passion for computers and mobile phones. It took me over thirty years to get an iphone and Emilia, at the age of one!, is already familiar with most of its functionality. The kid is a geek: let's not forget that one of her very first words was Google!
Recently, she has also discovered the washing machine. Now that she can stand on her own more comfortably, she has become more curious about what's in reach. Before, she used to look at the washing machine from her high chair, she just observed me every time I was using it. She was curious. Lately she has come to action and enjoyed some time investigating this big piece of technology that spins things around and makes a lot of noise. It didn't take her long to figure out how to open it, turn it on and select the programme.
Troubles, and big bills, ahead!
