I'm taking a few minutes to reblog this post because I'm so happy to see a post about the positives of technology. Technology is here to stay and I think it's important that we teach our children how to appropriately take of advantage of all it offers. It shouldn't be used as a "babysitter" or a reward anymore than watching TV should. Technology should simply be a part of life. Take time to learn all there is out there in the technology world for children (and for you). You'll be pleasantly surprised. (Ok , I'm stepping down off my soapbox.) Thanks for a great post Hipmombrarian.

Was barely eight when first I found,

This hidden hollow for my sticks and stones,

and hunted sea glass; from the world around,

I never tired, in this blissful zone. 148 more words

The passage of time gives you wrinkles, but if it also gives you grandchildren—even just one—you’ve come out ahead.
