I have numerous grandchildren in numerous states so I write letters to keep in contact, but I dont just write letters I write stories.
I tell stories about giants who poop, sea monsters who scare people and who pick their noses and when Santa visited. I lie to them relentlessly and hope they like it. Boogie picking seems to be a popular topic and Easter Bunny was a hit.
I want them to use their imaginations and to think of us occasionally even if they dont get to see us. How do you keep in contact with people?
