Laura Geer, who lives in New York with her son, captured a joyful moment between himself and his grandma on April 27 during a video chat where the pair played a game of virtual peek-a-boo.

In the video, Geer’s son can be heard gleefully laughing as they go back and forth playing the game.

The pair have this phone date everyday, according to Geer. Since New York has extended their stay-at-home order until May 15, this is a way for the family to stay connected.

“They each have a cup of hot chocolate while on their ‘date,’” Geer said. “They talk and play, and this was their game yesterday.”
