FaceTime and GRAND Social link party No. 109


Does this ever get old? Do long-distance grandparents ever get tired of connecting with grandkids on FaceTime? Or Skype? Or Google+ hangouts or any other high-tech ways we have of staying in touch?

I think not. Not even when the kids on the other end don't quite yet have down the center-yourself-on-the-screen-so-Gramma-and-PawDad-can-see-you-all-the-way technique.

Jim and I especially enjoyed our weekly FaceTime session with Bubby and Mac a few days ago. The highlight of the talk? Both Bubby and Mac — who talk to us separately, taking turns so each gets special time with Gramma and PawDad — told us at length about the new diapers set aside in the nursery for Jak, how when the line on the diapers turns green, it means Jak a new diaper.

Both were greatly intrigued by the diapers and the magical method by which their baby brother will let everyone know he needs changing. Of course, both were adamant they will not be the ones providing a clean booty for their brother.

Ah, the deep discussions between grandparents and grandchildren. Truly, there is nothing more enjoyable.

(Oh, and Jak has not yet arrived. Any minute now... any minute.)

GRAND Social link party No. 109

Welcome to the link party for grandparents! I look forward to your linked-up posts!

link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
