So Mom sent me this email the other day and she'll probably be upset I'm broadcasting it but it sets the mood so to speak:
"I read your blog (as I always do) and saw 'We decided to wait till next Saturday to celebrate when Grandpa could watch the kids.' I often read things like 'Grandpa took us out for lunch' and 'Grandpa met us' and 'Grandpa said', etc. Okay, so where's my equal time? Where's the blog about how much you all miss MiMi and how every day McKayla asks 'When can we see MiMi again?' or 'When will MiMi come visit again?' or John says 'Remember when MiMi.......', etc.
But the thing is, McKayla does talk about MiMi (I always spell it Meme LOL) quite a bit. Meme takes trips with us all the time, they spend hours on the phone together and she comes for visits. Of course, Meme doesn't know this, b/c it's always in McKayla's head.
If she's on the phone (play phone) and asked who she's talking to, 9 out of 10 times, it's Meme. Meme comes over to fix our hair and then we go out to eat. Meme calls b/c she needs our help and we have to go to her house. If we're going "shopping" or to the park or wherever, Meme is going with us. Sometimes McKayla just "calls" Meme to see how she's doing.
Everyday, there are little things that pop up that are Meme related; McKayla sees an elephant and says, "Meme would like that." or if she falls and hurts her butt, we ask her if she cracked her butt like Meme asked her when she fell one day....it always gets her laughing. She'll see a Dodge Durango and ask if it's Meme's. She'll point out to people that the 3D tree and rainbow in her bedroom were made by her Meme.
So while I may not blog about Meme trips (b/c sadly there aren't any lately with her away from home), she's always with us.
