Where Are My Files??

Just now while I am half way blogging, hubby called and asked me to look for some documents ….. so I left and put Angel on her favourite DVD. When I returned, I saw that she was extremely concentrated in front of my computer holding onto my mouse (as usual ….. ) and I didn’t pay much attention to that and carried her down from the seat then move on to make her milk. Finally she took her nap and when I returned to my computer, I was horrified to see that I am in the “CUSTOMISE” page and when I look closely, OMG, some of my posts were missing …. Even my blog format has changed with some missing elements too! Gosh ….. She deleted my files!!!

Actually this is not the first time she has deleted things from my computer, few weeks back I also accidentally found that I can’t find some of the pictures which I’ve saved on my desktop and later when I am using the search to relocated them, I found them in the Recycle Bin folder!!! Since then I only starts to pay attention to her while she is messing with my computer again …. Then I only realised that actually Angel is able to use the mouse pretty well and also hold it the correct way as if we adults were holding it. She even knows how to ‘Right’ click and ‘Left’ click (but didn’t know what’s the difference between them 2 of course … she would just click click click), moving the cursor in the screen and also use the ‘scroll’ button (in the middle of the mouse) by using her index finger moving the page up and down!!!! Maybe she has been watch me net surfing too much or I really have been on the net too much lately?? The other reason was also because I am using a very colourful light-up Hello Kitty Mouse and that’s why she pays more attention to it when I am net surfing?? (she use to sit beside me whenever I am online).

It took me few hours to just to retrieve and also reinstalled 80% of the elements in my blog back!! I am glad that she didn’t delete my entire blog away or any of the program files ( I hope). I don’t think I can retrieve some of those unsaved file back which she’d deleted from my blog, sigh! :( :( I just hope that she didn’t deleted something important which I am still not aware off, and also hope those deleted stuffs which I still unaware off are those unimportant stuffs! I think from this moment onwards, I will have to turn my computer off totally just in case that she deleted my programs files then I will surely be in big trouble!!! Can’t believe that a merely 1 year + baby knows how to create such a mess just by a few clicks on the mouse!! Last time during our days, I don’t even know what is a computer let alone using a mouse?? Really never under estimate the ability to construct and/or the power to destruct from a young child nowadays :)

Before I read this post, I was wondering, did you reinstalled your chat box? Coz I remembered last time there were some chatting history there..now I think I know why..
- So did Angel deleted your blog post?
- Sarah also know how to use mouse. We also impressed with it. When being asked, what is keyboard and mouse, she will showed to us..pengsan!

Kristie said...

ahahha! i can imagine how clicking harmlessly can create so much 'damage'! haha :)

Julie said...

I hope this don't happen to me else I will cry and be very mad. I always keep a close eye on Jonathan whenever he touches my notebook.

Esmeralda said...

Aha... Lil' Angel is back!!! Yup it's amazing what little kids nowadays can do Caroline. Look at my notebook and u'll know. Luckily Angel didn't delete the entire blog - there goes the blog..

She can really sit there quietly next to u while u r net surfing? That's really "kuai" lar... Ashton will not sit quietly. He will try to grab the mouse or the notebook from me!

Maybe she's watched u click & click using the mouse so many times... that's where she learnt her skills... Furthermore, it's a Hello Kitty mouse. Adults will be attracted to the mouse, what more a lil' kid like her.. haha.. ;)

U re-installed ur chat box? Ur chat box is quite empty ya..

Well.. next time when u r away, u just have to log off ur pc before u do other things... can't imagine if she has deleted all her pictures from ur pc (I mean permanently delete - can't find in recycle bin anymore)... and also, ur blog...

Clever girl!

Merryn said...

angel can be considered very good odi lor.. can sit there while u blog.. if ethan sees me anywhere near the computer, he will kacau n there was twice, he just press the power off button, just like that!

angel, clever girl! next time, make sure u permanently delete all those files! hahahaha.. just kidding, dun be mad! cheers!

MommyAngel said...

Cath, sob sob ..... thanks.

JT, ya ... luckily I am able to reinstall my chatbox. Yes, she delete some of my old and new posts, sigh sigh sigh!! Cannot believe that Sarah knows how to use the mouse already. Kids nowadays are so clever, aren't they?

Kristie, so you know now and next time never let Jayden stay close to your PC or else ...... you will be posting up the same topic as me real soon :)

Julie, me too always keeps an close eye on Angel but sometimes, she seems to know when is the time to do things (e.g when I went into the toilet or get ready her lunch, etc). If she saw me coming, she will pretent that she is just looking (but her hands are still on my mouse la, hahahahaha) coz she knows I will be mad at her .....

Esmeralda, ya ... again!!! Sigh!!! Ya ... I think I remember you've post something about your keyboard, am I right??? When she is beside me of course not sitting quitely la (how I wish she could). Besides she will constantly moving here and there or climbing up and down, she also wants me to hug her with one of my hand so I can only type with one hand. She just need me to constantly hugging her. She loves that I guess. Yes, I have to reinstall my chat box and some other archives as well, sigh!! Ya, from now on, I will try to log off once I am away from my notebook. Really cannot imagine if she deleted my entire blog .... I will surely blow my top, hahaha.

Merryn, so I guess I am joining your group here :) Oh no .... don't she dare to delete anything from my blog again or else, I will sent her to Auntie Merryn house, kekeke!!!

Esmeralda said...

Yup, I've posted something regarding my notebook keypads... Well, Ashton will also do like Angel. He will climb up the sofa & coffee table.. and when he's bored, he will ask me to carry him as well while I'm net surfing... but his hands are really quick so can't really type with one hand coz he'll grab the notebook real quick! Sometimes he can entertain himself for quite some time by removing all the batteries from the air cond remotes, TV remote, Astro remote, and any batteries that he can get hold on.. Everytime he sees a remote, he will throw the remote on the floor so that the batteries will come off! There goes my remotes...!

Esmeralda said...

Oh yeah.. btw, Blogger has a feature to restore ur archives is it?

Jess said...

Mummy Gwen said...

Haha..your Angel is really smart. You didn't lock your computer meh. When you want to use sign in back again lor. I never use mouse so Gwen hasn't figure out how to delete files without the mouse..haha. Hope you can recover back your lost data.

Contentedmom said...

haha...sounded like Ethan. part and parcel of growing! Enjoy

Oliveoylz said...

Oh my, she's really computer savvy at such a tender young age. A computer whizz kid in the making, perhaps?

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, OMG … although Angel doesn’t removed the batteries from the remote (and also we are afraid that there will be some leaking liquid from the batteries so the remote is always place beside me! Kekeke …. ) but she does throw things on the floor like Ashton. This most favourite thing that she would throw on the floor now is her toy car so that the wheels would came off!!!! Yup, that’s how she wants to remove something from the thing that she is interested!!!! @~@
- Does blogger have feature to restore my archives??? Didn’t know about this but thanks :) I think I have restore most of my archives now :)

Hi Jess, yes, you are so right!! :)

Serene, not all most almost all la …. But I am glad that at least she doesn’t delete my entire blog, hahaha.

KC, oh really?? Ryan also does that ah? Hahahaha …. Then I guess kids nowadays really are too clever leh.

Mummy Gwen, Nope … I didn’t lock my notebook and BTW, how to lock ah?? Hahahaha ….. I always use mouse so it’s easier for her to delete my files :( I don’t like to use touch pad leh …..

Irene, ya … I think last time I saw your post about Ethan with your keypad as well …. Hehehe.

Olive, @~@ hahahaha ……

Esmeralda said...

Of all the ways to remove something, they chose to throw it on the floor. Haha.. now even my small alarm clock in the room also become Ashton's victim already. Everyday throw my clock on the floor and get the batteries out. I wonder how he can get his hands on it when I put it on the table.. Crab-by hand.. ate too much crabs when I was preggy.. Haha.. that's wat old ppl said..

MommyAngel said...

Oh ... then your alarm clock must be good one and can stand Ashton constant abuse, kekekeke .... but Angel does that too, she would be able to take all the things from our table now, either by doing her 'ballet pose' or climbing up the chair or even take her small writing chair along and step on it to reach for the stuffs @~@ Sometimes she even try to grab the knife from my kitchen table, so dangerous!!!! Kids .... are so cute!!! Hehehe

Esmeralda said...

Haha.. no Caroline.. I've changed 3 alarm clocks within this last 6 months! No matter how strong & expensive the clocks are, when they come into Ashton's hands, sure gone case!

Same here.. They can think of anything outside the box to get something that they wanted!

MommyAngel said...

Hahaha .... 3 alarm clocks ah?? :P Maybe we should rap the alarm clock with bubbles or disguised the alarm clock into something else hor then they will not know that it's a clock :P Last time I used to disguised all my bananas too (dressed them up coz I have bought the banana dress last time but don’t know go where already now) so that Angel won’t recognised the bananas, hahaha … really funny looking bananas :)

Esmeralda said...

Yeah.. maybe disguising them.. but BANANAS? How did u disguise bananas? Got the dress some more??? *at wits end*

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, yes .. I used to dress up my bananas like a doll, hahahaha @~@

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Yes, nowadays kids are very smart. They are good in intimating what adult does...

MommyAngel said...

JT, that's true :)
