My How Things have Changed

When I was a kid, the word "computer" wasn't even in my vocabulary.

When my daughter was one and half, she was "reading" a book. I was listening because it was SO cute. She suddenly realized she had an audience and felt self-conscious, so... in an effort to get rid of me, she said, "Mommy, go check your email."

Then yesterday, Josh said something that made me laugh and Jordan said, "Mommy, that was a good one. You shoud blog about it." Pretty funny, huh?

Great anecdotes! I'd say everybody will soon tweet their way through the day, except that it will be something else before we know it. I don't think there's ever been a time when it is so easy to become an anachronism.

Yeah, Trish, I don't know how I ever lived wihtout the Internet. My husband jokes that when we were dating, he'd say "Bye, I'll call you." And I'd reply, "No, that's okay. Just send me an email."

*giggling* Those are just precious. And jordan and Josh will have them forever now that they're blogged!

and it scares me to think what technological advancements our children will have to teach us when we're old; like we taught our parents how to email and surf the web!

How cute: go-check-your-email as a ploy to get rid of Mom.

A friend was just saying how his mom was forever telling him to go play outside in the summer when he was growing up. Now it gets turned around.

Oh my gosh, I love that your son told you to go blog about it! That is classic!

Can you imagine sitting down with your grandparents 30 years ago and saying..."In 2009 I'm gonna check my mail and talk to people instantly via my small phone that works anywhere. I'm also going to have a webpage on a computer where anyone in the world can read about my life and what I'm doing anytime they want."
Oh and gas will fluctuate between $2-4 a gallon. I think they would have had us comitted.

OMG, Sherrie, your kids have their own blog? That is too cute!

It is amazing how our kids 'know' so much about computers and how the language has changed. I say without thinking, that I'll 'google' something. Mad, isnt it!

That's too funny! Gotta train my kids to tell me to go blog. ;>
One day I pulled my typewriter suitcase out of its hiding spot to clean there and my son asked, "What's that?"
"My old typewriter," I said.
"What's that?" he asked.
