How times change

April 29, 2012

When I was little, I remember having an old Bakelite dial telephone to play with.  My sister and I would have pretend conversations with all sorts of people.

When Pearl was a toddler, she was given a chunky toy cellphone as a gift.

About four years later, Fainjin was given a much slimmer toy cellphone, with a colour screen, holographic pictures and more ring tones.

Babess was playing with that one today – she has such realistic half-conversations, sometimes it’s hard to remember it’s a toy phone – when Fainjin came up and asked to have it.

“I’m talking!” she protested.

“But I want to play Angry Birds!” he countered.
