Text message from Nellie, Mike, and Fiona:
“Where are you and Dad going to be this weekend?”
“Home. Dad’s working. Why do you ask?”
“We’re thinking of maybe driving up for a visit.”
Keep cool, don’t scare them off with over-exuberance
“Oh that would be great. Just let us know.”
… a few hours later
“YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!”
11:30am, Fiona, long overdue for naptime, finally fell asleep against my shoulder, my favorite Grandma position. Now she’s napping while Mom and Dad go find a swimming hole.
I like this job.
