Sometimes as much as a Grandma wants to make her little Cami happy...
A big sister is better at it.
I can't exactly climb under the table and pop up, like Elora can.
Or say things like, "So Cami are you ready to become the middle sister?" (Violet will be here in just 4 weeks!)
And I don't notice cars in the parking lot like Elora does.
Giggling she says, "Grandma Honey look at that 2 person car!"
Grandma Honey is amazed! "Are you kidding me?? What's the name of this car? Can you read the name on it Elora?" I squint with my Grandma eyes and read what I think I see on the back of it, "I think it's a SNORT."
Dennis looks closer, "No, it's not a SNORT! It's called a SMART."(I then heard Elora say in a sing-songie voice from the back seat, "Introducing the 2011 Toyota Corolla SNORTS!" ....not that Toyoto makes these, she just came up with that.)
We sing on the way back to our house. Elora loved the song so much that we played it at least 6 times which means we kept driving around.
Finally we had enough of that song and actually drove into our driveway.
Home at last.
So while Cami played.....
Elora went right to work journaling about the miniature car.
I know the day is fast approaching when Elora won't want me to share her journal on here.
I'm totally good with that. But for now, she offers it to me.
My favorite memory of the evening?
It was the next morning when I woke up to find this on my counter.
Elora had been helping me clean out the cupboards in the bathroom after her little sister had gone to bed. When I found these 2 containers I remember mentioning that I need to run them through the dishwasher. What I didn't realize is she had grabbed a sticky note and left this reminder to "Clean two pails" for me!
I guess she figured since her Grandma can't quite read the names of cars, that I would also need a reminder to clean.
We love our little grandgirls.
