Bright Eyes has new computer skills.

He can turn it on, get the internet up, type 'Thomas' into Google and then get himself to the Thomas the Tank Engine website, where he goes to the games section and plays each of them all by himself.

How did he learn it? By watching us, by being interested in spelling and typing, and by watching his sister take him through a variety of kids' computer games over the last few months.

I'm delighted (although I'm limiting the time he plays...)
