I can remember when my kids were learning to tell time. Digital was just coming out on watches and clocks. I thought it was a terrible idea. How can kids learn to tell time if they don’t see the hands on the clocks? I remember thinking “how lazy!”
They did learn to tell time and I got over it.
Now, Velcro. Isn’t it one of the best inventions of all time? How did we ever manage without it? It’s use’s are way to large to even get into. Let’s just take kids shoes for one example. I can remember when my kids were very small and how many shoes I had to tie, tie and TIE over and over during a day. They used to have these little things with bells on them and each side opened up and you could tuck the laces into them so they couldn’t untie them and DRIVE THEIR PARENTS NUTS trip.
So, my soon to be 4 year old grandson Christopher just got a new pair of tennis shoes and I told him to put on his shoes and he asked me to tie them. I looked at my son Toby and SCREAMED calmly said “Sue didn’t buy him VELCRO shoes!!!, what was she thinking?????” He said “I know!”
I have gotten VERY a tad LAZY!!!
