You know how you’re supposed to grow up, go to college, fall in love, get married, and move away from your home town? Well, it didn’t work quite like that for me – instead my parents moved away – but the end result is basically the same. Fast forward five years and my little boy doesn’t get to see his grandparents anywhere near as often
as I would like.
As much as I would love to drive to visit my parents every weekend, I don’t have the time or money to do that. Phone calls are nice, but they’re just not the same as seeing someone’s face (especially for 2 year olds).
Thankfully, Facebook has an option for video chat! Unlike Skype, which can confuse technology challenged grandparents, Facebook video chat is just a button away. Have you noticed the little video camera in the corner of a private message window?
Open up a private message on Facebook with someone you love and give it a try. Instant grandparents when my little man just can’t take another moment without them, and it didn’t cost me a thing!
