In memories of myself growing up there was these special moments of joy of playing "a recorded of the tv movie" to be seen for the maybe tenth time on a Friday evening,,,,,, now,,, find your self one on the lap top or the IPad,,,,
Nellie has a tendency to bring it one step further,,,, to be noted after I found her.... that was her LAST time with treat and electronic on the toilet ;-)
Treats of all kind even if it is for a special moment seam to have changed in the shape they come in,,,, now longer a pale, leaning, messy looking, homemade birthday cake and no longer the ice cream stays with one topping.....
so is all this so bad because it used to be different at one point in the past ,,,, this is a brand new generation with brand new expectations and access ???
I think as long as we keep our minds in a loving, friendly, excited and caring state and teaching our children to still fully appritiate and remember what they might have or not, and share the special moments with them so that they remember us parents as present for them in their future memories!
Then I think we can even remove the ice cream totally to fit more toppings!!
Be there for your children and share their time with them, that's not spoiling our children,,,
is my thought of the week!!
