I am not a big fan of phone calls. It's just not my thing. It's not what I do. It's not how I roll. And that's talking to adults. So you can imagine how much I really do not like talking to kids on the phone. You cannot understand them; they cannot understand you. To me, it's painful.
Macey, on the other hand, really enjoys the phone. And, luckily for her, her Grammy calls her several times a week. They do not talk for more than 60 seconds, but it means something to Macey. I did not realize how much until Saturday. Grammy had not called for a few days and I had not noticed -- but Macey did! She called on Saturday morning and when Macey was done talking to her she bounced over to me and shouted: Grammy is back! She came back! She came back, Momma!
So sweet what kids notice and take in.
