I’d like to give a shout out to our favorite Gramma in OH! How wonderful is it to be in driving distance to all grandparents? I absolutely love that my kids will benefit from close relationships to them. It is lifesaving to have Lissa a two hour drive away to visit and play and help me out in innumerable ways. Here’s why:
1. She is awesome, all-around.
2. She brings food when she comes.
3. She is up for any type of play: outside, inside, upside-down.
4. She stayed with the kids, solo, while I was in the hospital with Emmy. That’s amazing!
5. She is so interesting!
6. Refer to #1.
Today she arrived and because it is the most most most beautiful day, we were outside for much of the time. Lily and I led her to the stream (Emmy was along, too), then she and Lily did puzzles and now everyone is jumping in leaves. We all love you, Lissa! xoxo
