I see little kids wandering around with cell phones and ipods and I think “holy cow they are way to young to have those”. Who the heck are they calling on that cell phone? I am almost 24 and I don’t even know why I have a cell phone, I text like 2 people and that is it.
I realize that Capri will be a very techy kid because of who her parents are. Stefan and I love to have the newest gadgets and if we had money we really would have a lot more. She already loves playing with our laptops, cell phones and the ipod; and I just see it getting worse/better as she learns more.
The thing is I can’t talk. We had a computer in our house when I was 3 (that was in 1990) and I knew how to use it. I would turn on the computer and boot up into DOS and open up Commander Keen or Treasure Mountain and play them until my eyes bugged out.
I had my own walk-man when I was like 4 or 5 (it was hot pink) and I loved it. I knew how to mix tapes off of the radio when I was in elementary school and later was burning cds for myself.
Stefan is a whole other story. He can tear a computer apart and put it back together. Him and his best friend have conversations that I can’t follow because it sounds like another language (and sometimes it really is). So yes I know that my child will most likely have a netbook or something at an early age, because heck I don’t want to share mine with her and that goes for my ipod as well. The question now is when will she be getting them so I can stop sharing mine?
