Phone call from the road

“Hi Mommy!”

“Hey buddy, how’s your trip so far? Where are you guys?”

“Granddaddy says we’re just south of…Tipton? And, also, Mom? I got pink lemonade!”

“Just south of Tifton – won’t be long until you’re in Florida! Oooh, and pink lemonade – no regular lemonade for you, huh? You go for the good stuff! Did you have lunch already?”

“We went to Chick-fil-a. And they had a playground!”

“Awesome. Whatcha been doing in the car?”

“Mmmm, I read some books. And I tried to color, but the car was making me scribble scrabble. What are you doing?”

“I’m putting dishes in the dishwasher. Not as fun as pink lemonade and Chick-fil-a, I guess. Rosie’s taking a nap. Hey, guess what Rosie said when I picked her up today?”


“She said ‘Where’s Noah?’ She misses you already!”

(laughs) “Oh, Rosie. Mom, maybe you should find a toy that used to be mine and let her play with it. That way she’ll remember me.”

“I think that’s a great idea, buddy.”

“Ok, Mom, I’m going to watch my DVDs now.”

“Ok. Have a good rest of the trip. I love you.”

“Love you, Mom.”
