Awww.... So adorable!
I bet there were similar scenes when my sister and I learned to type. I'm sure my father has photos of that somewhere.

Recent studies have determined that children who spend a high proportion of time staring at a keyboard loose cognitive ability, creativity, and resourcefulness compared to those who play naturally. Parents dealing with this issue find means to restrict keyboard time, by hiding keys to typewriter cases and late night bedroom checks for the telltale sign of a flashlight beam gleaming out from under tented bedclothes, and struggle to encourage "real" play outdoors.

My tongue-in-cheek nonsense inspired by present day concerns about "screen time" aside, I loved these photos - they warmed up my morning, and did take me back to the memory of using my first typewriter, a late 1950's Olympia Delux, which I am pleased to say I still own.
