Last week I told you about my amazing grandmother celebrating her 99th birthday. As I was choosing which photos to use, I also found this set…
My grandmother has always loved technology. When we were little, she was the first (in fact probably only) person I know to have a video disc player (giant DVDs!). She loved her video recorder, she loves her satellite television. She was always on the look out for the next thing.
Not long before we left the UK we were celebrating a family birthday and the 7yo brought out his DS. My grandmother was fascinated, and wanted to know how to play it! So, ever helpful, my son decided to teach her (and my aunt) how to use a DS.
It was a wonderful moment to watch. My (then) 6yo teaching his 97yo Great Granny how to play – showing her how to use the stylus, how to move the characters in his game, how to win!
They were both completely absorbed. It is a moment that I am so grateful to have captured on film. A moment not to be forgotten.
Generation gap? What generation gap!?
