This morning on the way to school, the kids were complaining about shows that didn't record on their DVR - Taylor with his wrestling and Ashton with an episode of iCarly.
Without even thinking, I busted out, "You both need to be thankful for what you have because when daddy and I were younger, if we weren't sitting in front of the TV when it came on, we didn't see it!"
To which Ashton questioned, "Why didn't you record it?"
"Because we didn't have that technology!"
I thought of following up with "and we had to walk to school, uphill, both ways, in the snow too!" But I just left it at that.
And then I sulked the entire drive to work because dang, I'm old.
*Yes, we did have a VCR, but since Ashton probably doesn't even know what a VCR is, I opted not to date myself any further by having to explain that as well.
