As we were driving along, Den and I were busy talking,
while she was reading her bird watching book
she'd had in her purse.
expecting her first baby. How she and her husband, and her entire
extended family and friends (including me!) are just in awe over
excitement for this baby boy to arrive soon.
I told Den,
"Can you imagine the love that will surround this
baby!? He will have SO much attention. Oh my goodness.
They will probably never lay him down!!"
That's when I heard Téa come to life from the back seat. With a bit
of accusing tone, she asked me, "Well what about you Grandma?
What if you were to have a baby?"
"I'm too old for that."
"I know. But what if you did have a baby?"
"Uh...well...okay" (not knowing where we were going with this)
"Would YOU lay your baby down??"she slammed right at me.
"Uh, no, I guess I wouldn't."
Like we thought it was a bad thing to hold a baby so much. She was
trying to stand up for them.....which I thought was SO endearing,
and SO sweet.
Especially since she doesn't even know the people
we were talking about.
"Okay, I will try to remember that..." she quickly pulled out some
sticky notes from her purse
and waved them in front of my eyes and gently whispered to me,
"Grandma use this to write it down!"
sanitizers she also had in her purse,
On the other hand,
give a girl a purse and look what happens....
the thought disappeared when she wouldn't even consider being alone for a few minutes while I took a shower.
Nope, she decided to take her bird book down the hall
and hang out with Grandpa.
And later on when her sister Laurynn came by to pick her up...
the contents of Téa's purse were all over the floor.
I found that rather comforting.
There's still lots of little girl left in our Téa.
