Kavi wandered over yesterday and glanced at my screen when I happened to be editing some HTML and said, sounding startled, “Mommy, are you coding?” I absent-mindedly said yes (was focused on work) and she said, “I didn’t know you knew how to code.”

I told her I’d been hand-coding HTML for twenty years, and I knew a little Unix too. I’m really not any kind of actual coder, but it was a good reminder to me that I should make this kind of activity more visible for her, so she doesn’t just think of mommy as the one who gardens and throws parties. 🙂
