The little guy’s dad has been gone for a few weeks on one of his typical business trips. We use Skype to keep in touch when we can, and the older he gets, the more J is able to interact with his dad virtually. It’s kind of fun to see.
I love that we can use Skype to talk to my parents and my sister and her family, too. It is beyond great that even though we’ll all far apart, we can all keep up on how the kids are growing and developing via the video feature. What a far cry from 60+ years ago when my grandma and grandpa traveled to Ecuador on a banana boat and mailed letters (on paper! written in ink! with stamps!) that might or might not ever arrive.
