Am I Smarter Than a 7th Grader??

Kendall and her friend were observing me banging my head on the desk working on the computer today as I tried to figure out the HTML code for my Cre8buzz page (I literally spent hours on it.)

Sweetly, she asked, "Mom, what's the problem?"

I told her I was trying to figure out how to change things on my page, and that it was not easy.

Incredulous, she replied, "What are you talking about, Mom!? It's simple; it's like buttering toast! Are you kidding me?!"

Wow, I thought, Maybe she can do this for me and save me some hair-pulling, teeth gnashing, and bursts of profanity!

Little Smarty then proceeded to try and show me how to take code already written by someone for Myspace and asked me where I wanted her to put it (which is nowhere, because Crebuzz is not MySpace.)

Kids today; they think they are "writing HTML code" when they are actually just copying and pasting code.

I'm just glad she didn't really know how, because for a moment there, I was starting to feel old and stupid. Now I can just feel frustrated, confused, and exhausted.
