My own recent visit to the dentist brought back a great memory of the day that our three year old grandson visited the dentist for the first time. He was so enthusiastic about the visit that my daughter suggested a Skype visit so he could tell us all about it.
He was smiling broadly when he appeared on the Skype screen. He chatted about every detail of the visit. How the office looked, and the earphones he wore to listen to music while his teeth were cleaned. With glee he showed us the the toy ice cream cone that he received as gift from the dentist as he excitedly popped the ice cream – a foam rubber ball – from the cone several times. Lastly, he showed us the Hulk tooth brush (one of his favorite characters) and the floss that he had received in a “goodie bag” from the dentist.
This was one of our favorite Skype visits because our grandson shared a first experience with us as we sat back and enjoyed listening. We are fortunate that our children often suggest a video call when one of the children is especially excited about something special, a new activity, or a new accomplishment. It can be some of their art work, a gift received, a trip to the park, or the first trip to the dentist. We have watched first steps and listened to first words – Skype has given us great memories to enjoy. Video call with apps like Skype, FaceTime or Google video can do the same for you.
