Join us for a month of writing!
First thing in the morning, this is all I heard.
"Are Grandma and Grandpa here?"
"Will they go in the driveway?"
M. moved the heavy blinds to peek out the front window. "What are you doing?" I asked.
She looked out at me, "I'm going to wait here until Grandma and Grandpa get here."
Then she looked back out the window, "Are they here yet?"
An hour later, this is all I heard.
"Are they still coming?"
"I don't think they are coming."
M. looked out the side window this time. "Mommy, Grandma and Grandpa aren't coming."
"They are coming. They will be here after lunch. Remember, it's a long drive," I reassured her.
"Oh, not yet?"
A couple hours later, while running some errands, this is all I heard.
"Will Grandma and Grandpa be there when we get back?"
"Is Grandma at the library now?"
I questioned M.'s thinking, "What do you mean?"
"You said she would be at the library."
"No, honey, I said she will go with us on Wednesday again to the library."
After lunch, this is all I heard.
"I want Grandma and Grandpa to come."
"Are they here yet?"
"You said they would be here."
M. saw someone walk by the window. She jumped up and looked. "Who's here? They are here?"
"Hi Grandma and Grandpa!"
Grandma and Grandpa are finally here.
