, your comment about not having computers to do homework and research reminds me of my history teacher during my senior year of high school. He had all of his students write a 90-page report on the Civil War. It had to be hand-written, even though at that point, most people had Windows 3.11 (ha ha!). That was the worst homework assignment EVER! I hated that teacher.
I remember having a "dark thirty" curfew! Those were the days! Now the kids in my neighborhood don't even know what night games are! And even if they did, like I'd ever let my young kids stay out after dark; it's not safe anymore. It's so sad!
Also, speaking of the Atari, I remember when my family had one! I also remember when we first got a Nintendo. It was so exciting to have one!
I'm also the youngest in my family. I'm the youngest of seven children. However, my mom never made me do any of the stuff you (Una
) talked about, other than doing my own laundry when I turned 14. I an also 8.5 years younger than my closest sibling and 23 years younger than my oldest sibling. So, my parents were kind of "tired" when I came along, so I was spoiled. I wasn't spoiled in the sense of getting everything I wanted like a lot of kids are now today, but I was spoiled in the sense that the "wooden spoon" or "belt" were ever used to discipline me, or that I didn't have quite as many chores as my older siblings.Misfit
, I'm also only 30 and my husband is almost 33. So, I understand how you feel.
Also, I'm so EXCITED for the A-Team movie!!! That's going to be awesome!!!
