Julianna has started taking her socks and shoes off every time we get in the car. I don't really blame her. I'd never wear shoes if I didn't have to. But yesterday on the way home, she took them off and Adam started saying, "This little piggy went to market. This little piggy stayed home..." "Aww," I thought, "How sweet." He continued, "This little piggy ate roast beef. This little piggy got eaten by a wolf." What?!?! "This little piggy got hit by a truck..." Umm, yeah. I'm pretty sure that's not how it goes.
Now on to 10 things...
10 words my kids know that I didn't know at their age.
1. DVD--I was a teenager before my parents even got a VCR. And nobody actually bought movies. They were rentals.
2. DVR--Are you kidding me? You watched it when it was on or you didn't watch it. And you had to sit through the commercials, too.
3. Cell phone--My family was on a party line when I was little. The thought of having your own phone in your pocket would have been very futuristic.
4. Computer--I took typing in high school. Typing. Not keyboarding. And I went through college without the internet. My research was done in the library with a stack of books in front of me.
5. Satellite TV/Cable--We had 4 channels. 4, not 400.
6. Cartoon Network--And on those four channels you could watch cartoons after school for an hour and on Saturday mornings. There were no 24 hour cartoon channels.
7. Gameboy--Our handheld games were paper and a pencil to play tic tac toe or hangman.
8. iPod--Ever heard of a boom box or a Walkman? And there were these little rectangular things called cassettes that you could put in them to listen to your music.
9. Google--There was no googling in the 70s and 80s and even part of the 90s. You can google it.
10. Playdate--Really? You didn't used to have to set up a date. You just played.
What words do your kids know that you didn't?
