Visiting the Grandbabies via Technology
I was many miles away when my first grandbaby was born. Not 500 miles, not 1000, not even 1500, but more like 4750 miles! She was in Europe and I was in the good ole USA. Although I visited twice while my daughter’s family lived there, 4750 miles is too far to be away from a precious grandbaby.
Thank goodness for technology such as a computer with Yahoo! Messenger and a webcam. I got to talk to her, see her eating, crawling, and taking some of her first steps. I cherish those memories.
That was years ago and technology has greatly improved. She’s a teen now and has a younger brother so I visit with them via FaceTime and our iPhones when we can’t be together in person.
Tell me about your visits with your grandbabies.
