Oster, are you there?

Due to the heat wave being over, my mom just left this morning to go back home. She was here almost a week and (because of the heat) we stayed indoors the majority of the time.

We pretty much spent our entire days together: cooking, cleaning, playing, reading, etc. There were times Oster and I did some of our daily routines: language class, library, grocery store, etc.

One thing that my mom really enjoyed participating in was the Skype-ing we did with my mother-in-law and my dad (on separate occasions). My mom doesn’t have a computer, nor does she want one. So you can imagine how excited she was to see Oster babbling with his grandpa and gram during the week. She was amazed at how clear the audio and images were.  She even got in the background to do a dance and add to the conversation.

After we “hung up” each time, my mom really wanted to get involved with the Skype-ing. I offered her our computer to Skype with our other family members but she said she wanted to Skype with Oster.  “How can you do that?” I asked.  “He’s right here…we only have one Skype account.” 

“Well,” she said. “I can use his laptop”. She picked up his plastic toy, put it on her lap, looked at the “monitor” and said, “Oster, are you there?” She talked to the laptop screen while Oster was standing right next to her. I wish I had my camera to take a photo. Both she and Oster had so much fun pretending. My mom had a giant smile on her face the entire time.  What a precious moment.
