Technology Is Making Mommy Old & Uncool (VIDEO)

baby iPhoneIt was bound to happen sometime. My children were bound to surpass me with their technological prowess. I just had no idea it would happen so quickly.

I first got my iPhone when my daughter was 8 months old. Since then, she has always been able to use it better than me. Of course, as old as they make us feel, there is also a converse effect. They seem kind of young and foolish. Back in my day, we had books and had to turn pages. I have seen my children get very confused by cellphones with number buttons. "Why aren't they on the screen?" my daughter asks.

So this video of the baby trying to touch screen a magazine is a bit vindicating and yet totally hilarious. See for yourself:

Haha baby! I outsmarted you again! In all seriousness, there will come a time where our kids think we're old farts and they win with technology. It happened to us and will happen to them.

The other day, my husband found an old cassette tape and showed it to our kids. "Do you know what this is?" he asked them. They stared at him, dumbfounded, shook their heads, and then went back to playing a game on the iPhone.

"It's a tape," he explained. "We used them when we were your age." My daughter just laughed, shook her head, and scrolled through to iTunes.

The game is over. They win already.

Do you ever feel behind when it comes to technology?
