Cadence asked me today if I would please print her out a few coloring pages, so I grabbed my laptop to look something up. She watched as I typed in my password and remarked,
“Wow, Mom. You type really fast!”
I told it was because I’ve had a lot of practice, and that I took some typing classes back when I was not much older than she was because they were just starting to use computers in classrooms.
Yep, I blew my 9-year-old’s mind today when I lived in a world before cellphones and tablets and home computers.
Then she asked how fast I can type, and I told her I wasn’t sure anymore. The last time I took a typing test, it was around 90 words a minute. So we took a detour from the coloring page and found a website where you can test yourself and practice typing. You can check it out here:
And while I’m certainly not always this fast or accurate, I gotta say, I even impressed myself a little with this one:
You know you want to try it, too. 🙂
