Phone Call to Grammy

Calliope, picking up her toy phone, "Mommy, let's call your Mommy!"

Me, "Lovey, we can't call Grammy. She died, remember?"

C: "That's okay, I can call her." (I start preparing to get misty, wondering if she might really have some supernatural connection with my mother.)

"Hi Grammy, how are you?"

"Oh, you're dead? That's good."

And... cut. No mist after all.


  1. children see things in the most unusual way :-)

  2. Kids are amazing. Elena got me a few weeks ago...she was playing with the Maps app on my iPad & asked what she was looking for. She said, "Address" I said, "Oh yeah? Who's?" She says, "Daddy" I was thinking we were about to have the Daddy Question Discussion when she says, "Your Daddy". I did get misty & replied, "Remember, Grandpa died, he doesn't have an address" & she said, "I'll try." All I could say was, "Okay sweetie"
