DS is having a 'sleepover' at school next week. There was a list of things to pack for the night and things NOT allowed sent home today.
On the NOT allowed list was "iPod, MP3 player, electronic game, walkman or discman"

DS asked what the last two were <<sigh>>

DD has also asked me if I had TV when I was a little girl hmm

We went overseas when ds2 was 2.5 and returned to the UK when he was 3.5. In the midst of unpacking our worldly goods from storage he found some story tapes - didn't have a clue what they were and was amazed to find that they behaved like CDs on the whole.

My dd6 said to my father that his boobs were bigger than mummy's. We were both a little blush

Then she said to my Mum, are you really good at the hoolahoop because in your day there was nothing to do? (except stare at the cave wall?? hmm ) My Mum just said "yup that's right honey".

was trying to explain to my niece, then about three, what a niece was and told her that her mummy was my sister and her granny was our mummy. she looked at me for a bit and then said: 'no, you don't have a mummy.' and i said why not? and she said, quite kindly: 'because you are old'.

Going to an exhibition 'life in the 1970s' (made me feel very old in itself) and the DSs laughing at the 'funny TV from the old days'.
