High: Taking my 4th grade son into school Monday morning with a new HP mobile printer to work with his handheld computer, and watching him wow the teacher and his friends with how it works on a battery, and prints through an infrared port. He has Dysgraphia (I just explained that in Ineedalife's parenting thread, but it is a learning disorder that has to do with an extreme difficulty writing legibly, and using a keyboard is a bypass strategy.) Instead of feeling self-conscious and singled out, he feels like the cool techno-kid with the computer. When he came home, he was proud to tell me he was able to help the teacher because her printer is broken, so he loaned her his computer for a little while so she could type a note for the parents, and then he printed it out for her.
Low: That same kid, throwing up off the top of his bunkbed to the floor at 3 AM Tuesday morning. Thank God he missed his new $80 computer backpack I had to buy him to transport his electronics safely!
