I’ve known this Mama for a long time. Perhaps, for both our sakes, I just saw over two decades. We were in school together, and while she’s been working in DC she occasionally comes up for school and family events. She called a few weeks ago to set up a family portait. She would be visiting her grandfather, with her husband and son. And her dad would be in the country for a visit too. We had a few days where they would all overlap – so we made a plan to connect on Memorial Day.
I love that she has such a close relationship with her dad and her grandfather. We had a great time chasing her toddler around the park. He had a great time getting tickled and playing with his trucks. It’s a good day when you get to hug the people you love.
