Cha...Cha...Cha...Changes. Look how far we have come

Man how times have changed.

I can remember back in the day when I was living in Germany my NaNa used to send me VCR tapes in the mail with our favorite tv show on them so we could watch show that we didn't get overseas. This was in the 80's people, I'm old.

And I can remember getting 8 tracks from my Aunt and Uncle for Christmas.  Yeah seriously.

I can remember having a big a$$ boombox to carry around with cassette tapes in them.

Records, lp's.  I can still picture the Silver cover of the KISS Platinum album.

That brings me to what happened Saturday night when we were at the Atlanta Center for Puppetry Arts.  We were waiting for the main area to open and were standing by the gift shop. ??? Yes they have a gift shop where they want you to buy puppets...

That was when I noticed this

VCR tape

I called C1 over and started to show him and tell him about it like we were at the Smithsonian or something. I was like "Look C1, this is a vcr tape, that has movies on it" He was staring at me like I was crazy and then he just walked off.  Oh well.

For the record we do have some vcr tapes in the house but for the most part now that the kids are a little older and can get their own movies to watch they are used to looking for these

Yeah. DVD's.

Times are a changin'. 

What changes have you noticed most since your children have come along?

I bet T would say Cloth Diapers.  She loves those.

Way too many to list, but the biggest change is the change that the internet has brought along with how my children access movies now. My son has a Netflix account and he also uses Zune Marketplace to get movies. I'll tell ya, when my children leave the house, the TV usually stays off b/c I just don't know how to work the thing anymore.

I have to be alwyas vigilant schooling the way we do. Sometimes I look over and it's not a K12 lesson he is doing, it's a YouTube video he's watching. LOL
