A couple weeks ago when the kids were here, someone was wondering the name of a movie Diane Keaton had been in. One of them took out their phone and looked it up. Someone else wanted to know how late a store was open on Sundays. One of them took out their phone and looked it up. The phone we had growing up only made phone calls and it was a party line. When we first moved to our town 37 years ago we even had a party line because there were not enough lines available. Can you imagine anyone accepting that now?
I can not even imagine how things will change by the time Kaiden is grown. I only hope that in this world of instant everything, he learns that fast and convenient isn't always better; that you can't always get everything you want that's okay; that some of the old ways of doing things are still the most fun and the anticipation of waiting for something is part of the joy.
