When Conn is at work during the day and on the weekends, we actually communicate with one another quite a lot. No, we aren't on the phone constantly, rather it be talking or texting. We, on the other hand, use our wonderful Macs ichat and ivideo chat. I leave my laptop open all day on the kitchen counter and he, of course, is on his all day at work. So, as I walk past it through out the day, I glance to see if there are messages or updates from him. If one of the girls needs to talk to him or they just want to see his smiling face, there he is! They love it!! Oh, and it works wonders when they will just not listen to momma during the day. It's amazing what a little "daddy time" will do! HA!!
If you are not familiar with a Mac, you can do all of these fun backgrounds when you are chatting. The girls love when he goes under the ocean!
And...there is the ever so popular special effects faces! HAHA!
