There is a person I know who says often, "If my grandchildren want to talk to me, they can call me on the phone or write me a letter. I'm not doing that email stuff." And he means call him on his house phone, not on his cell phone that's in a drawer somewhere. Text messages are not even in his vocabulary. On the other hand, I'm happy to hear from my family any way they want to communicate.
Baby Sister had her own big day---her car seat was finally turned around to the forward facing position. In a two-year-old world, that's a big step, too. Thanks to Mommy for emailing me a photo. Personally, I'm thankful for all the technologies that let us keep in touch.
Note: If you wondered about the text message above, yes--I lead a ukulele band. The Yesterukes band is made of mostly grandparents who primarily play for audience filled with more grandparents. You can learn more about us here.
