Well they arrived from the USA. My elder son, his wife and my 2 year old grandson. He was tired and kept saying "Daddy Home" as he has reached the age of understanding he was not at home in any sense of the word. SKYP works for the Global family as to say we have only physically met when he was 6 months old, 14 month old and now the connection is strong.
WIthin half an hour he was on the floor playing trains with his "Maka" just the same way we do over SKYPE. He sat and to the amazement of his parents cuddled into his "Maka" as she read him Mr Magnolia both saying he had gone off books and would not sit like that anymore with them. He went to bed [it was 2am UK time] and when he woke this morning and Mom said to him up shall we get dressed and go out to play ....he said "Nooooooo....I want to go see Maka.
We drew on the chalk board, we played parking the car and did some Thomas tank games and this little guy is better than I am with the touch screen Ipad.
He has always copied me over SKYPE so now he is rapidly adding to his vocabulary going round saying "Golly gosh" and putting his arms out for effect. Mind you i think i prefer being fed over skype as i do not actually have to eat it.......YUK to cold pastinie and scrambled egg which I got fed today. Tonight we laid and double decked with me on the settee [couch] on my side and him laying on top of me...just the way his dad used to do 28 years ago,... as we read another book.
