My daughter and son-in-law from out of town dropped in Yesterday. It was a surprise visit and I loved it. We went to dinner.
I asked about my great-grandson, and she replied, "He's crawling now." Then she casually took her telephone out of her purse and opened it, touched the screen, and showed me a SOUND, COLOR, MOTION PICTURE of great-grandson crawling, cooing, and starting to climb furniture.
It was AWESOME. Not the cooing and crawling..all babies do that..but the fact that daughter was carrying sound, color, movies in her purse as casually as we used to carry snapshots.
What a world we live in...I guess all grandmothers will do that eventually.
Perhaps I was awed by the wrong miracle. The miracle of baby's growth and learning over-shadowed by the miracle of technology.
Wake up, Chuck, this IS 2007, after all. Digital photography was invented, what..ah.. twenty years ago? What did you expect? Old fashioned Polaroid snapshots?
