So I have always loved new technology. I am always amazed by what it can do. But lately I am really missing the old days. You know the days when there was only one phone in the house? Those are the days I am missing right now.
I guess because my kids are getting older and they are beginning to spend more and more time on their devices. I miss the days when I didn't have to compete against their friends and the world wide net for their attention.
I am guessing I sound like an old lady right now! It's funny because as I sit on the couch typing this up on my super convenient smartphone I am complaining about smartphones!
Some people may say just take the phones away from the kids! But because I love technology so much I can't! I love that I can communicate with them via FaceTime, text, email and simply calling them in addition to talking to them face to face. I thoroughly enjoy getting memes from my son about Harry Potter and pics of my daughters doing cute things together while I'm away.
So I guess to wrap things up...
I sometimes miss the way things used to be but I have a great appreciation for the way things are now. And no, I wouldn't trade my modern tech for those simpler times!
