On the eleventh day of Christmas,
My grandparents shared with me
Terrific tales for telling. . .
In our family, we have a tradition of making up bedtime stories. My grandchildren remember my father's tales of Oscar the blue-eyed turtle. My own bedtime series centers around a neighborhood cat. The biggest problem I have is getting sleepy and losing track of my own narrative, or even falling asleep mid-story. With Skype or FaceTime, you can tell a story to your grandchildren even if you are miles away, although you won't be able to snuggle. If you're not confident in your own creativity, you can always read a book. Long-distance grandparents can share stories in multiple ways these days.
