As I was cleaning my 4 year old's room this week, it occurred to me all the things she has and how things have changed since I was her age.  And there is no such thing any more as "age appropriate," because the kids today are way smarter than I was at their age.  I thought I had it GOOD growing up.  But when I look at what my daughter has, I am rethinking the word GOOD.

When I was growing up, this is how it WAS:

 This WAS the spices on the table!

This WAS your IPod!

  This WAS Sat and Sun morning!

 This WAS a big screen TV!

       This WAS the Food Network!

                    This WAS outside!

  This WAS what you did on a rainy day!

 This WAS a computer!

This WAS your Phone and your Internet, all in one!

 This WAS the house you wanted to live in!

 This WAS cable! (Roughly 5 channels)!

 This WAS Friday night funny!

 This WAS REALITY television!


                            This WAS BET!

This WAS the school bus!

When I was growing up, I watched this with my mom probably 100s of times, and I am pretty darn sure she thought this was ALL impossible...

              Who knew???

After reflecting on my childhood and my daughter's childhood, I have decided that parents give what is the "BEST" at that time.  My parents did.  My daughter has a Kindle, a laptop computer, an InnoTab, a Leap Frog, and a flat screen TV with 1999 channels.  I am giving her the "BEST" that I can.  And I am not sure how she is going to top this when she has kids, but I sure hope I am around to see it!
