And now Grace has also taken to calling me at about 5:00pm. She asks if I've left the office yet. And she stays on the line until she sees my car in the driveway.
Mostly she says very little. She just holds the phone to her ear while she goes about her business around the house.
Yesterday she asked, "Mom! Are you bouncing?!" Bouncing? I was confused.
"What, Grace?" Bad question. When I say that, Grace tends to think I'm deaf.
"MOOMM!! ARE YOU BOUNCING?!!!?"
"Well, no Grace, I'm not bouncing."
"Well, don't you feel the phone bouncing?"
If only phones were so advanced that I could feel her bouncing it. Then she could have felt me hugging her back.
