Sign of the times

When I was small, I had an old rotary-dial phone to play with.

All my children have their own toy cellphones.  I find it amusing that they have all carried on fluent conversations on them – with appropriate pauses – well before being able to talk back to a doting grandmother on a real phone.

But there have been generational advances even between the children.  Yesterday, Babess opened her toy cellphone, held it up in front of her towards The Dad, and said “Smile!”

It makes me wonder what my grandchildren’s toys will look like…
