talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Mini meez

Fiona and I were playing around together this morning and made a Meez that looks a little bit like her feline-loving self. Well, OK, not too much like her. Not like too many other women I know, either, since I don't know hardly anyone shaped like that.

Fiona does not use the computer very much-- and never on her own-- but she really enjoyed trying to figure out which face shape, eye shape, and hair style and color looked the most like hers with me. Until now, she had never noticed that different people have eyes/faces with a range of shapes.

If anyone knows of a site that lets kids experiment with this type of play but which pictures realistically shaped bodies and less body-conscious clothing, please let me know! (Please, no similarly shape-impaired, highly commercialized, toy-pushing sites like!)

Although I doubt it has what you are discussing here, you might find it of interest.

Yahoo avatars isn't too shabby. Most people are automatically "skinny", but there are plus-sized clothes (though only like 6 options). You can have a library background - and a monkey!

Both these sites look fun. Thanks, people!
