"LURK mommy! A Robin!"
Someday she'll say look, but in the meantime, when she says "lurk" I giggle at the vision of us tiptoeing around.
"Who told you what a robin is, Willa?"
"Oh.... Dwamma P..."
"Grandma is pretty smart, isn't she?"
Like I said yesterday, we spent the weekend at my parent's house. It was the first time all 4 of their grandkids were in the same room. It was chaotic and loud and absolutely wonderful. My Grandpa joined too, for 4 generations of fun.
It's a big job, I have: being a conduit between my parents and their grandkids (W. Michigan campus). Ensuring that the kids know they're being thought of by my folks, telling the grandparents what the kids are remembering from visits, how they're being spoken of in absence, keeping everyone up to date and know that they're loved. In person, it's easy. My dad gets on the floor with the kids to play. My mom takes them for walks... This distance and increasing communication... important stuff.
