First off, sorry for not making the rounds lately. Sometimes I can get a bit overwhelmed here and need to find something I can take a temporary break from. Hope you understand.
So, technology. Is it good? Is it bad? A little of both?
I have found one benefit for our family. With Lineman working at a substation or line he can be gone for stretches of time. Phones are great and believe you me, he and I talk about a hundred times a day… not much of an exaggeration there, trust me. The kids talk to him here and there, but now we have this……. Skype! The boys, all of them, get a kick out of it. They get on there and start
making armpit noises, burps, silly faces chatting away about their day.
Then as shower time comes each boy gets one on one time with dad. Little Man usually
drives his trucks over the keyboard and loses the connection points to different body parts or tells what different animals say.
I don’t usually Skype with Lineman that much, seeing as how we talk a hundred times a day.
Oh, gotta run! My phone is ringing, guess who’s calling?!
