I think about my own childhood now that I'm a parent. Often. Of course I do, it is my primary frame of reference in all things childhoody. There are things I did that my kids will never do. I could talk about how they will never dial a rotary phone. Or that they won't be enjoying candy cigarettes - remember those paper wrapped gum ones with powdered sugar inside that looked like smoke? So cool. Or how caller ID will prevent them from learning the art of prank calling. But all of that stuff just makes me feel old. Plus, this type of comparison would be way more interesting coming from my grandparents who walked 50 miles barefoot uphill both ways in the snow and all that. Still. Times have changed.

My grandparents had one and used it till it broke.. I think they finally canned it in 98? It was so cool! I loved using it!

Well I just started scanning the list and... not impressed. They have teeter totters at every playground here. And all kids jump out of a swing at high speeds. It's part of the circle of life. Sledding? Really? This article is a waste of time.
