Personal note: After blogging pretty much everything since Charlotte was born, I was thinking that she is going to have a log of her young childhood. Combine this with the daily reports we get from her day care she can pretty much track her whole early life. That is something that I or anyone older does not have.
I try to think back on my memories; most of my memories are brief flashes and told stories that I am sure change over time. Then I look back through my old photo album and some more memories come back. Are pictures a catalyst to remembering past or just a crutch?
Now we have digital cameras, cameras on our cell phones, we can take a picture pretty much anytime now. That should give the babies of today a broader memory of their past. With most things when you gain something you probably lose something else. So what do I have that Isabella and Charlotte won't have? Will something like story telling go by the wayside along with penmanship, spelling, and basic arithmetic?
