My children are so incredibly lucky that they have two great sets of grandparents. Jared's parents actually live next door to us, so we see them almost every day! However, my parents live 2 1/2 hours away. In fact, my entire family lives 2 1/2 hours away. I grew up in Rhode Island. Jared and I decided to settle in Connecticut, primarily because his parents offered us land to build our house. it was really a no brainer!
We now have a beautiful house, nestled in the countryside, as well as a wonderful school district for our children.
While we are so incredibly happy with our little life, we really miss being close to my family. Especially my parents. Both Lincoln and Avery are very close with their Grammy and Grandpa!
To see how CloudPets™ work, click here -- but basically, you download the free app on your smartphone, register your CloudPets™, and then invite family and friends to send messages.
When a message is received, the little heart will flash and you'll know there's a message waiting! Your little ones can even send a message back!!
My favorite feature of the CloudPets™ are the parental controls. Only people who are invited can send messages, which makes it super safe for kiddos.
My cousin is in the military, and was recently deployed overseas for 8 months. This will be a great way for him to keep in touch with Lincoln. There's a crazy time difference where he's stationed, so this is such a great idea!!
We found our sweet puppy at Walmart in the "As Seen on TV" aisle, but I also noticed they were located in pallets at the front of the store. While you're there, don't forget to grab three AA batteries, which are needed for your CloudPets™.
While CloudPets™ are available in select Walmart stores, they will be available nationwide soon!
How would you use CloudPets™ in your household? Which animal would your child choose?
