I spent the evening chatting with the girls on the New Moon site (not related to Twilight).
New Moon is a safe, educational, ad-free site for girls ages 8-12. Activities on the site include moderated chat rooms, discussion forums, and reader submitted art, poetry, and videos. My favorite part of the site is the Ask a Girl page where the girls can submit Q&As about all sorts of issues. Highlights: “What do I say when my friend is mean to me? I’m nervous about my period! How do I stop myself from focusing on my mistakes?” And since it’s all moderated by adults, everything is safe and fun.
Anyway, I was the special guest for the chat room tonight; we discussed all things Operation Beautiful-related!
If you’re a parent or know a girl that might like New Moon, you can buy them a membership (it’s provided for a fee to keep ads off the site).
Since I worked so late, the Husband got takeout and brought it to me to eat on the couch. Just standard Thai fare: a spring roll and tofu cashew nuts with rice.
I had an orange for dessert.
That site is so cool! I hope there is still things like that around when my girls are older. 🙂
