No matter what my Saturday will be like.. I can always bank on an early morning Skype call.. from my favorite little guy.. Jack.
We have been skyping since he was just 2 months old.. and he and I have a routine of wide mouthed funny face smiles at each other... some songs we enjoy together (If your Happy and you Know it Clap your hands, Itsy bitsy spider.. etc) and I even get to playpen babysit while Michelle is letting the dog out for a pee. He shows me all the toys in his playpen. I get tours of his books and proudly shown his fire truck, or a hammer... and I get to see the occasion temper tantrum and time out too..
When I am late for our date... I get a buzz or two from Michelle's phone... and that usually gets me up and off to my laptop (usually before 7 AM)
What is so fun, and so amazing is that from a very young age, Jack recognized the sound of Skype phoning me.. and makes a bee line to the computer to await my window to open. Michelle taped him waiting for me to call... I love knowing he knows me!
This morning I got a tour of his new book with all kinds of textures and page by page he showed me all the cool things that you can feel in the book!
