"Can I see your phone dada," Aster asked me this morning. Against my better judgment (she is just three) I said "sure" handed it to her and then walked into the other room with Beatrice for a second to retrieve an item. A few minutes later caught up with me in the other room and said "I'm done Dada." I shrugged and checked the phone to make sure she hadn't inadvertently called someone but my Iphone is so tough to navigate I didn't think she could really do anything with it. I can barely do anything with it.
This afternoon as I was transferring some photos from my phone I noticed a couple that I knew I hadn't taken.
"What the heck?"
Aster has a little "tent" in her room and she keeps some stuffed animals in it so I guess she wanted to take a photo of this stuffed pink monkey and she also snapped a photo of me and Bea and she handed the phone back to me. Pretty impressed (or maybe I should be alarmed) that she knows her way around my phone that well!
Aster and Bea are both little dolls. I love seeing pictures of them. Love the recipes too . They are wonderful.
Thank you, Becky, couldn't have gotten here without you!
Sounds like Santa might think about getting a cheap play camera for Aster. Love seeing the pictures of both girls. Have a Merry Christmas !!
Ha, good idea, Judith! And a Merry CHristmas to you too!
I enjoy your comments, recipes, and stories. Along the lines of the rotary phones I well remember not having them. I was in sixth grade when our town and Ohio Bell switched to dial phones. They made the switch on a Sunday morning and I recall getting up early so I could be the one who would claim to be the first in our family to use it. Up until then one picked up the receiver and operator came on the line and inquired number please? In a small town we usually recognized her voice and greeted her before reciting the number. If the family was on a party line there was a letter after the three digit number such as 392J. If you had a private line the three digit number was sufficient. On the party line people could eavesdrop or else tie up the line for long periods while you were hoping they would cut it off so you could make your call. I am nearly 70 so this was in the fifties. I now have a iPhone but frequently have to ask my granddaughter to explain a function.
Thank you, Nana, for the kind comments...at this rate my daughter will be teaching me how to use my Iphone soon!
I do so enjoy the photos of your precious girls! I look forward to seeing and reading about them. I LOVE and use many of the recipes and reading the interesting articles about the Amish. Thank you Kevin for all the hard work you put into this newsletter. Here's wishing you and your lovely family all the best during the Holiday season.
Thank you so much for the kind comments, Claudine, it makes my day!
You are so right about your daughter teaching you how to use your phone. My grandchildren constantly give me pointers on using mine. Aster is one swift little girl. I am sure she just blows you away at times.
