Technology and Scamp

What a world we live in! I'm a techology baby myself. Just in my lifetime (28 years), I've seen desktop computers move to the lap and to the hand. I've watched telephones with cords change to cordless, homeless and beyond. You used to could only reach my parents at home while they were there. Hey, you can catch me in the restroom at JcPenney's!

I loved my record player and my cassetes. My mom still listened to her 8-tracks when I was in grade school. I used to buy CDs. Now I can download songs off the web for my MP3 player. I can watch movies in my car or on my husband's handheld Nintendo DS. Going to the movie theater isn't as much of a thrill because we watch TV on our wall using a projector.

These are just to name a few, and here Scamp is growing up with all of this just like it's nothing! Who would have imagined 50 years ago that we would have all of this? When will it be enough? More and more and more stuff!

Sometimes, my brain just needs a rest!

I was just telling my husband the other day, Can you imagine growing up and not having cassette tapes? Not know what the tape smells like, how it would get all wrinkled up, and how you would have to wind it back in with your finger?

You're so right, and we were talking about this the other day, while we were in Best Buy, drooling over everything we want and don't have. We're techno-geeks ourselves and can never get enough :) It's come so far in my lifetime, and I can just imagine what will happen in hers. Adorable photos, by the way, such a cutie pie!

Heck, I remember not only corded phones but rotary dial. Hehe. I'm old! :)
