I Am a Skype Ambassador: Send a Video Message To a Mom In Your Life

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that I have been selected as a Skype Ambassador. I am so very grateful for Skype because it has is a means of communication between my husband and me and my children. My husband has one year of schooling left, to get his Doctor of Chiropractic degree, which is another whole year of living apart from our family, during the weeks. Hubby comes home on the weekends, but to go 5 full days without seeing him, every week, would be torture. We use Skype to stay connected, and so the kids can look at daddy, and tell him about their day.

Not only do we use Skype to catch up at the end of every day, and occasionally in the middle of the day, but we use Skype to share in special moments. Since my husband has been in school for the past 2 years, away from us, there have been some holidays and special occasions that we have had to spend apart. My kids have gotten in front of the webcam to open up presents, for daddy to see. When my children have received certificates in gymnastics or school, they have been able to share those with daddy, via Skype. As much as my kids and I love to get mail, and birthday cards and such, it doesn’t compare to Skyping with daddy, and to look at one another, and have him sing to me or the kids. Because children grow and change so quickly, my husband loves being able to watch their personalities and facial expressions via Skype. You can’t get that in a greeting card! Having a face-to-face chat across the web, has made a world of difference in my life, and the lives of my family.

Skype currently has a very cool Mom You Rock promotion. You can get onto Skype’s Facebook page and send a video message to a mom in your life. This is free, so don’t pass up the opportunity! a greeting card.

Be sure you are a fan of the Skype Facebook Page, too!


“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Skype. I received Skype credits to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”
