The Coolest Phone Call


ring. ring.

Me: Hello?
Little voice: Hello Auntie Madeline?
Me: Hi!!! Who's this?
bigger little voice: It's C.C!!
Me: Hi C.C!! Wow! Thanks for calling! Whatcha up to?
CC: I just wanted to know if there was snow in the mountains.

...well, the conversation went on for a good 4-5 minutes and pretty much all we talked about was the weather. But this brilliant boy asked about the temperature, told me about the weather at his grandpa's in Illinois, how much it's been raining in San Jose and about the power outages and trees that fell down during the storm we had a couple of weeks ago. But this was the first time I've gotten a totally unexpected phone call from one of my friends kids...just to talk about the weather! And he was so animated and full of little stories and bits of information.

I can't tell you how much it warmed my heart.

Kiddo, I love ya! You rocked my day.

I always think the gkids sound so much younger on the phone, I've saved so many of their messages on the answering machine that we're running out of room!

Oh I can hardly wait until my grandchild is old enough to phone me.... of course it will be a while, as the child isn't even born yet, but I'm excited about the phone ringing! hehehe

How old is he, Mad? We LOVE it when we can talk with Nicholas on the phone because he usually has so much to say! How fun.
