A couple of weeks ago I visited my parents in my home town in Alabama. My brother lives with his wife and daughter in Spain. Every morning, my 4 year old niece calls my parents (her grandparents) via Skype from Spain. They share video calls and really stay connected.
My mom always knows when she hears the Skype “ringing” sound on her computer that it is most likely my niece calling her! It really is adorable.
When we were there, my two children joined in on the intercontinental Skype calls each morning. They told each other about exciting parts of the day, and shared details such as what was for breakfast.
My kids had been eating Capt’n Crunch Ooops All Berries, a variety without the little yellow pillow shapes in it, consisting of mostly colored balls.
When they told my young niece about this cereal, she said, “Why do you eat Poops All Berries?!”
It became a family joke for the week.
“Want some Poops All Berries?”
I love Skype and I can’t imagine my life without it. With family in Asia, Europe, and various corners of the US, Skype is the best we can do to stay connected. It makes it easier to swallow that we can’t afford to fly to visit each other with any regularity.
With Skype, the grandparents can still see their faraway grandchildren growing and changing each day.
Also, in the past month, I was able to do a Skype interview for a job on a different coast. I love Skype!
PS, Skype, please get me a job!
