Avery and CiCi
The weekend is here and I'm beside myself with anticipation. Anticipation of sleeping late, doing a little housekeeping and then working on the taxes. But I hope to mainly just chill.
I have told my beloved David, we must make a dent in the boxes in the garage. With this cold weather it is crazy for us to be parking outside.
Avery (#4) grandchild spent the night Tuesday night. She is now almost 5, and she called me on the phone and asked if she could spend the night, I told her no, not until either tonight or tomorrow night. Well, according to David who was with her at the time, and I quote directly--"she threw down." Cried with tears dripping down her cheeks--honestly Susan Lucci couldn't do any better. Anyway, of course David brought her home, and of course she slept with me and of course she kept me up all night. You might wake up with her foot in your mouth, I swear she is such a restless sleeper.
Anyway, we got up Wednesday morning, and I was dragging. And this is some of our conversations.
Me: Avery, do you love Nonna?
Avery: Yes, but I love CiCi and Ginger the most.
Me: Somehow that doesn't surprise me.
We of course are late and I can't find my glasses. I am positive I left them on the nightstand. After frantically looking all over, it occurred to me that Ginger probably got them off the nightstand and had hid them under the bed.
Me: Avery look under the bed and see if you see Nonna's glasses. Do you see them?
Me: Avery put your glasses on, look under the bed and see if you see Nonna's glasses. Do you see them?
Me: Avery get a flashlight, look under the bed and see if you see Nonna's glasses. Do you see them:
I lie flat on my stomach, look under the bed and and see my glasses and of course they are just out of my reach.
Me: Avery see if you can reach Nonna's glasses. Can you reach them?
Avery: (lying beside me) No.
I get the flashlight and manage to move them just enough to get my hands on them.
We were about 5 minutes late.......The picture above is Avery and CiCi at the dogshow last night. The received a ribbon for third place in "Most well behaved." Hmmm
