Post Mother's Day: New Media Mami

There is a backstory and a series of events that led to this post.
  1. Last Christmas, my dearest friend bought her mom her first personal computer.
  2. My mom recently joined Facebook and is a "friend" on the social network.
  3. During Easter Sunday, at my house, we all sat together in one room and everyone was online: my mom and my brother uploading photos to Facebook and my best friend and my sister showing each other photos from their respective phones. I was struck by this.
  4. A few days later, I was having dinner with my friend when she received the first email her mother sent from her new PC - ever! It was a great moment that I got to witness!
  5. The next day I was discussing getting a Spanish keyboard for my mother to use to go online by herself with my brother. She usually requires his help.
  6. The day after that, I happened to through Facebook a recent post, Spanish-language laptops sell like hotcakes at South Florida BrandsMart USA stores (via www.hispanictrending.net) and quickly researched it and purchased one for my mom. 

It was a wrap!

For Mother's Day, Mami got the world - the world wide web!
The Spanish langauage laptop even has a webcam - Hello, Skype!

* Warning: Don't be surprised if my mom has her own blog up soon too!

Have you put your Mami (or papi) on to new media?

  1. I keep talking about it, but I haven't done it yet. My mom enjoys our iPad, so I've thought of getting her one of those.
