Traveling Mommies

traveling-mommiesOkay, I’m going to admit I dread long international trips for work.

As I’m looking at my travel calendar for August and September, I have a whirlwind couple of weeks ahead of me. So I decided to explore this Skype thing.

I’m actually in Japan now for the week and did my first Skype call this morning with my girls, LoveBug and Bear.  Needless to say the better Skyper of the two – is our baby girl (pictured above). She loved it.

Our call did start a little sad though – LoveBug was crying and clinging to Ali (our Dreamer & Believer) because she didn’t understand why Mommy was in the computer. But once she got the hang of it, she was totally into babbling and waving.

I know there are a lot of ideas on how to stay close to your family while you are traveling – I rank Skyping at the very top!

    I can totally relate to the long distance parenting thing! My daughter is living in France and we yearn to connect in time and space and VIDEO. This past weekend was Bunny’s Baby Shower for grandbaby #1 and we tried to Skype Sweetpea in! So disappointing, that we did not have WIFI in the banquet room. Poor Sweatpea was on the phone, however, for much of the duration, talking to all of friends and fam.

    I’m lucky because now they are grown up, but I did travel a good bit when they were young, most notably when I relocated and lived 4 months in a hotel while they were still back “home” as very young girls. You are lucky, because you work for one of the most family-friendly companies I have ever experienced.

    Congrats on your recent promo! You go girl and so do your girls!
