Very interesting! An email from a Mother to Son

I came across this note from a Mother to Son at ryanneyes.tumblr about the kids of 1930s,40s,50,60 and 70s. I really loved it ! I think I loved it so much because it reminds me of my childhood in Tanzania,it was funny! just playing outside with friends, just being kids, no computers games, no so much restrictions, no worries! Hope you like it!A big thumbs up for this Mother for telling this so nicely.Enjoy!

This is how it starts:
My mom e-mailed this to me.
No matter what our kids and the new generation think about us, WE ARE AWESOME! OUR LIFE IS LIVING PROOF!TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE 1930s, ’40s, ’50s, ’60s and ’70s!First, we survived being born to mothers who may have smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes.Then, after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby crib....more
