Even though my son Bryan is 23, I still remember the inquisitive little boy he was.
His W I D E eye look of wonderment.
His excitement to learn new things.
And yeah me, the Hero Mom that was teaching him all the cool things.
Playing with Fisher-Price toys and remote cars.
The awe of putting "cassette tapes" in the back of Teddy Ruxpin!
That all lasted until he was about .... three.
Then something happened.
Technology lost me in the dust and it became second nature to kids.
So, last night I came home with a new phone.
There I sat, next to my son, so he could teach me how to use it.
Now, it's my son, teaching tech challenged Mom.
I THINK it's going to be cool, but, as of this morning, I am feeling pretty uncool.
I haven't mastered scrolling through names and menus, and that's supposed to be the easy part.
