Our Toys

From my cell phone

Even though Benjamin, my grandson-the-car-thief, lives in Switzerland, he and I communicate on Skype.


Again, wheels.


He has his toys, I have my toys, and they converse.  Benjamin still tries to reach through the computer screen, but give him time.  He'll figure it out someday.  Then, maybe, just maybe he will talk with me without me using a stuffed animal or a car conversing with his own frog or truck.

He wondered today why the wheels did not turn on my new Disney Pixar car. He loves the wheels most of all.  I could not give him a clear answer, which amused his father.

  1. Could just see this happening, and how puzzling it must be for him. Thank goodness for Skype.

    1. So far, there is no confusion. Maybe another year?

    1. I change my voice, and now he does as well. It is a leap in development.

    1. I wish I could reach through the screen, grab him, and cover his face with kisses.

  4. Toys can do lots of talking. One day they won't need to talk though.

    1. Hoping he will talk with me instead of ignoring me soon.

  5. How funny. Then one day he won't have any idea that talking through the computer was a newfangled technology. It'll always have been for him.

    1. My gr-daughters have the perception that iPads have always existed, even for me as a child.

    1. Hope all is well in Arkansas. Will you be having any of the cold weather predicted for midwest/east?
      Kids can figure anything electronic. They have not fear.

  8. My grandkids are the same way. I need to figure out how to set up video chat so I can visit better with them. I used to have it, but then something happened where it stopped working. I wish I was better with computers. Or that I was a little kid playing with toys. Ah, what a life!

    1. Well, we had Lincoln Logs. Being able to watch him grow up, with new developments almost every hour, is amazing. We have Skype, which you can find and install, fairly easily. If you can't figure it out, convince a neighborhood friend to send over one of their kids.
