Traveling parents are mobile in more ways than one: We are by definition on the move and we're also almost sure to be carrying a mobile phone.
Those two facts create another neat opportunity to stay connected to the kids while traveling. Did you know that many blogging sites (like Blogger) have tools that allow you to post to a blog from a mobile phone?
There's a good reason to blog from your phone instead of using it to call. We all make that promise to call home, but sometimes things come up that make that promise impossible to keep. That causes a big problem at home because it can add to the anxiety of disrupted routines and rituals. In a way, not calling is better than saying you will and then being unable.
So if you're not confident about being abe to connect via phone call, use your smart phone to connect via blog while you're waiting to take off, sitting in the back of a cab, or waiting for a meal. It's easy, fun and it may help the kids.
