We don’t see each other very often; wish we did. Sadly, the distance between us is too far for frequent visits. When she and CC do come down, however, the lively conversations quickly begin. No time for being “proper” and reserved although I can’t see that happening with either one of us anyway! One big hug and we pick up where we left off at the last visit.
We talk about hair color and style, comfortable clothes, keeping up with our reading glasses and so much more. We laugh; sometimes we shed tears; sometimes we just sit but no matter what we are doing or saying, we truly enjoy each other’s company. I think that speaks volumes because Mimi and CC are “the other grandparents”! There is no jealousy, no comparing one against the other, just mutual respect and admiration for each other. Actually I prefer to think of it as love. It is hard to believe that less than ten years ago we had not even met. My, how time changes things…
Last night was so much fun. The grandsons did not disappoint in their antics, the food was delicious as always, and watching Wesley and Jarren (next door neighbor) make s’mores was the best. Their excitement was contagious!
Perhaps the best time though, was golf cart sitting, watching cars drive down the street and turn around in the cul-de-sac in front of mommy and daddy’s house. Was it the aroma of the wonderful s’mores, the music, or all of the smoke generated from the fire pit? I prefer to think it was the s’mores. 🙂
Our visit with Mimi and CC was too short. I am so glad that the weather cooperated most of the time that they were visiting Caitlin, Robert and the boys. I know that their time with Mimi and CC was much too short and I know 4 people who are going to miss Mimi and CC when they leave tomorrow. Why does time seem to fly by so quickly when you don’t want it to?? On second thought, make that 6 people…😪
Take care and safe travels tomorrow, Mimi and CC and please hurry back. We have more golf cart sitting to do. ❤️
