Tech Savvy

Last night, I came home with a nice little Disney Princess doll for Maddie. It's one of those cute little things that sings. This one sang a song in the tune of "I'm a little teapot". I figured, since my little girl is into singing now, she'd get a big kick out of it.

She did. For all of 2 minutes.

After that she ditches the damn thing, heads straight for the iPad instead, launching the YouTube app and playing some videos of nursery rhymes instead. *sigh*

Jesse is also big on YouTube. These days he's learning the words to Queen's "We Will Rock You".

Back in my day, the only piece of tech I got was a Viewmaster. It was one of those toys that looked into like a binoculars, with a cardboard disc that had slides on it. You clicked on the lever, and it took you through some 10 to 12 slides. And that, impressed the shit out of me. "Look Mommy, I'm watching a movie!" Never mind that it didn't have sound and the pictures didn't move. It was magic as far as I was concerned.

Our kids are tech savvy. 

Meanwhile, Mae still can't locate the YouTube app on the iPad. Heheheh.

It's okay Hun. One day when the world is decimated by a nuclear holocaust, and the world is relegated back to the dark ages, your rudimentary survival skills will see us through. Then you can show us who's boss.


  1. My 9 year old wants a Facebook account but her blogger mummy with several blogs say no. Double standards....

  2. Hahahah. But it's not a bad thing, cos FB is probably a dangerous place for kids. :D

  3. LOL!! Damn.. I think I will join Lieutenant Mae when the nuclear holocaust comes.

  4. I cant imagine if I need to communicate with my lil one through facebook next time? aww..

  5. Sorry Gina. You're tech savvy. Mae will just give you a dressing down. :)

    Ms White, now imagine if your lil one hides his updates from you. Hahah.
