I have 9 grandkids, I also have 2 that call me grandma (my grandson's 1/2 sisters).  One grandson lives with me right now while the others live in 2 different states. We use Marco Polo, FaceTime, Duo, Messinger, text and old fashion phone calls to keep in touch.  When we get together it is a wide variety of stuff as the ages range from 2 months to 13 years old!  Dinners out, the park, whatever we can do.  I love video calling - I have helped with school projects, done art, played games, looked at mouths with missing teeth (the tooth fairy is coming), and sang songs while on video calls.  It helps make actually visiting easier because they all "see" me almost every week.

Well, my grandkids are of an age where they really would rather be with their friends or doing social media.  They don’t want to be around oldies anymore.  👴🏻👵🏼

@VoyagerVicki 

Thanks Vicki for the topic

I have 2 granddaughters who are 8 ½ & 7 my 2 married sons each have a daughter they are very close like sisters 

I pick them both up from their different schools once or so a month I take to them to eat their choice

I introduced them to Frosty from Wendy's which we 3 love

I also introduced them to eating at a cafeteria which can be costly but fun

I keep them on a weekend day on occasion usually try once a month 

I'm no longer a babysitter I kept my oldest the 1st 4 years of her life till she went to school & kept youngest some of those earlier years. 

I like to be a fun silly grandma letting the kid in me have fun too 

My oldest loves animals bugs and all I encouraged this so we all love kittens So we've had fun adventure few times going to SPCA near my home which is no kill Cats roam around freely really neato We visit the cats and dogs and Guinea pigs

then we go eat at Denny's which they love offers so many things both girls love eating

Also April 2018 I got my 1st Alexa Echoes was super great then in August I got Echo Show on sale That was awesome realized could video chat with others I ended up getting the 3 of us each a Echo Show so we can chat at times and they send me voice messages which are so sweet and they come up on my app so I can listen to them anytime I want.

I enjoy introducing them to new things & I'm amazed at all they can do at their ages and teach me to 

I recently brought a purple car for us ride in & my youngest son has my GMC SUV now 

I enjoy my times with them and just focus on them when they are with me.... being Grandma Ginger is truly a blessing in my life.... having my sons was greatest gift to be their mom... but being Grandma can be so much fun 

Enjoy your family everyone! 

Have a beautiful weekend 

Ginger  :  )

How do you spend time with your grandkids?

Grandparents are spending more time with their grandkids--and doing it in more creative ways: https://www.aarp.org/home-family/friends-family/info-2019/grandparents-survey.html

 

How often do you see your grandkids? How do you use technology to stay in touch?
