But what we do have a choice about is what kind of far-away grandparents we will be. Early on we decided that we would invest time, money and energy into making sure that we had as good a relationship as we possibly could with all of our grandchildren. Here's a tip for those of you that have made that same kind of commitment.
Hallmark has made the most amazing books...recordable books that you can read and record your voice. This one is my favorite! I bought two of them and Dave and I sat down and personally recorded us reading them before giving one to Kai and the other to our Texas girlies. All of them love listening to us 'read' the book to them. It's one of Kai's favorite at the moment! While we were up there last weekend, he pulled it out several times and wanted to read it.
