Grammy on the Go


In the age of technology, living far away doesn't mean that you can't be involved with the ins and outs of daily life. We have found this out lately when we are talking to our parents on the phone.

Because we have been using Skype, Senia Mae is used to being able to see them as well as hear them. Yesterday I was talking to my mom on the phone while we were outside playing on the deck. Senia Mae had a fit when she grabbed the phone and only saw a still shot of Grammy. This was completely unacceptable and we had to pull the laptop outside to solve the incompatability problem. Of course, Grammy loved this.

Today in my office, Senia Mae was a little bit crabby, for she chooses not to nap during work hours. You know how it is...too much going on. Sometimes it is difficult to work on patients when she is whining and clawing at my leg and just as I was about to give in I thought of a fantastic idea.

I pulled out the laptop and connected with Grammy on Skype while Senia Mae relaxed in her stroller. I set up the computer so they could see each other and Grammy started singing the age old bedtime hit "Way down upon a Suwannee River". I don't know why I hadn't thought of it weeks ago...it was a total win win situation...and Grammy only had to sing for about twenty minutes and the little one was a gonner!

If anyone else is in need of a Grammy on the go...I'm sure she wouldn't mind me handing out her number!!!! Thanks, Grammy!
