I awoke to a card from David and Scarlett discussing my virtues. Sweet. And some freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Lovely. Simple. Sweet. This is the good chapter in life.
But, you want to know what Scarlett gave me that was my favorite? For months now she has been saying words. Complicated words like penguin, Caterpillar, Dank-you, and even two sentences. But, my little brat had never said mom or momma or mommy. Oh sure she had said Daddy a bazillion time. She even knick-named Daddy-Daddoo. But, no mommy.
Tonight at my brother's house where we prepared dinner for our mother Scarlett was crying. My mom had taken her from me when we walked in the door and since she had just awoken from her nap was crabby.
