We came home from the pool yesterday and saw a plastic bag at the end of our drive.
I knew it was a new phonebook but the girls were curious.
I didn't tell them what it was and they made 90 to go get it.
They ripped the bag open and pulled out the new phonebook.
"Cool! A phonebook... and a magnet!!" Big said.
She started flipping through it.
For nearly 30 minutes, that child played with a phonebook. Looking up names and businesses.
"Is this thing in alphabetical order by last name?"
"Look Mom! There are coupons in here too! LOOK!! 4 coupons for Empire Fire!! Mom, we have to go. Hold on. Let me look up the phone number."
Something once an everyday staple in a home has become practically non-existent. Let's be honest, google.com can tell you anything. Even when my girls have and question that I can't answer, their response it, "Well, google.com it Mom."
Along with the art of ironing, sewing, and cursive writing... the phonebook is a thing of the past.
It's sad but very awesome that my children find it so interesting.
I will totally pull the phonebook out again on one of those "we are sooooo bored" days.
