Welcome back to Thoroughly Modern Mimis! Mimi, Grammy, Nana, GiGi, Oma, Grandma . . . they’re all terms of endearment for one of the most important roles in life’s second act: grandparenting. And what a grand act it is!

Having grandchildren two states away, virtual grandparenting is a must. We use FaceTime all. the. time. From reading stories, to showing TV clips, to seeing silly faces, we find ways to keep in touch via technology with our favorite little Seattle-ites.

Love these sweet faces!

What about you? I’d love to know how you keep in touch with your grandchildren who live far away?
