What happened when your dad is a computer engineer??

1 Comment

I have been wondering why we kept receiving boxes since last week.


Guys have hobbies right?  Some might be cars or sports… My dear hubby’s first love is moi (said the confidence me! ) and computer/technology…

He often shops online for those electronic stuff. So it is not uncommon for me to receive boxes that are not mine and I never ask him about his purchases…

Anyway, I came home to a big box and asked, “what the heck is this?”

Dear hubby, ” OH, I want to build a COMPUTER with the boys” 🙂

Me,” WHY?”

Dear hubby: ” Why, not?  I built my first computer when I was 18!”

Me thinking to myself  ” Hmmmm yes… 18… our boys are 11 and 6!  I guess we both TRULY believe in EARLY intervention in educating our kiddos! I guess that is also what happened when a geek married a nerd :-)”

He has a list for items that the boys have to keep track as it arrived


So I told him, “I have to blog it!!”

So friends expect “HOW TO BUILD your own computer 101 in a few weeks! ” 🙂



One thought on “What happened when your dad is a computer engineer??

  1. What a great project! I watched my dad build computers since somewhere around the windows 3.1 days. (Not sure when that was? I’ll give you a hint – my sister graduated college last summer – she was just a litlle girl in the Windows 3.1 days!) It isn’t very budget friendly to build computers these days – they are so mass produced now, but it does give the advantage of instinctive knowledge on how computers work! I loved watching my dad and I hope your boys have as much fun as I did! I love my computer geek dad!
