Computer History Lesson

One sunny day, a father was trying to explain to her five-year-old daughter how much technology had changed, the father pointed to there brand-new personal computer and told her daughter that when he was in university, a computer with the same power would have been the size of the house.

Wide-eyed, her daughter asked, “ How big was the mouse? LOL! (The girl is thinking of a big house and a big mouse (rat)…What an innocent imagination? (hehe)......I remember when my son started to learn about the parts of the computer and have asked me once, Mommy, why is it Computer has a mouse? Wondering what is a mouse(rat) doing in the computer (hehe.)..Kids would sometimes be confused of some words with same spelling but with different meanings like bat of a toy and bat of a mammal. Well, we parents are here to explain further of the difference.

Parang ako to ah 10 years ago..I never touched a computer way back in the Philippines. It was just a "must" when I went to Management at work. Takot mag touch ng key baka sumabog ang puter, hehehe...
Actually ang mga bata ngayon ang daling matuto..My 2 year old can play in the computer without difficulties, she probably downloaded so many stuff by accident, hahaha...

Yes very true mommy, ako nga sa office na rin natutong mag computer hehehe... lotus 123 pa noon ang first command na natutunan ko. Unlike our kids palibhasa tinuturo na sa school ang basic computer kaya mas may alam pa cla sa atin. Di ko nga alam mga parts ng computer nalaman ko lang ito sa anak ko. Pero nakakahiya sa kanila so dapat mag explore din tau maski mga young once na hehehe.
