About this blog: I'm a wife, stay-at-home mom, home cook, marathon runner, and PhD. I recently moved to the Silicon Valley after completing my PhD in Social Psychology and becoming a mother one month apart. Before that, I ran seven marathons including Chicago and Boston. Exercise is an integral part of my life. I hope to one day go back to long distance running and tackle the New York City Marathon. Right now I run after my one year old son. Although I am a stay-at-home mom, we are rarely "at home." My mom also stayed at home with my brother and me. She warned me that, although rewarding, it can be isolating. So, with her help, I learned the importance of getting out into the community and meeting other mothers. On the rare occasion when I am at home and have a hand or two free, I squeeze in time to scrapbook. As a new mom, many challenges are thrown my way. I hope my opinions, triumphs, and struggles help experienced parents reminisce, new parents cope, and parents-to-be get an honest glimpse of what the first years of motherhood can entail. (Hide)

My son loves looking at "I Spy" books. Whenever we walk into the children's section of his favorite bookstore, it's not long before he starts repeating "I spy. I spy. I spy"
My son loves these books because there is bound to be a truck, train, plane or car on almost every page. I enjoy them because I remember reading the books and playing the game as a kid. And they are not as repetitive as some of the other children's books... you can always find something new to point to on each page.
My husband got a kick out of these books when he asked my son where the phone was. Rather than point to the rotary phone (which my son has never seen in his life), he thought for a bit and then pointed to a blue rectangular block. Well, yes, that was the closest thing to a smartphone on the page!
What "mistakes" have your children made that are not actually mistakes at all, just a generation gap?
What is it worth to you?
