When my mommy was little her mommy would always have lots of pom pon girls at her house during the summer months. One of those girls has been friends with my gramma for over thirty years - since before my mommy was born. Her name is Betsy and I had a chance to meet her.

One of her favorite stories is when she was babysitting for my mommy and mommy was sick and happened to upchuck all over her, the bed clothes, everything. This was Betsy's first introduction to that and even though she felt like getting sick herself she cleaned mommy up, cleaned up the crib and the floor and got my mommy settled down and back to bed. The two of them have a special bond and Betsy calls my mom "Mootie".

Today I spent the day with Lola because mommy went to substitute teach at Maple. We had fun, she watched me play at Movin & Grovin at the Y, we had time on the slide and when we went home we had more time together with reading, playing and even making pizzas.

Gramma was amazed at how much pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese I could get on myself while we made lunch. I loved tasting each piece of pepperoni before I put it on the pizza - gramma didn't mind - she figured it was only us eating it anyhow. Hope mommy can get the red sauce out of my clothes.
Her favorite story of the day - other than pizza making - would be when I moved my trampoline from one side of the room to the other side. I politely asked her help with "gramma - I need help", when it got stuck on the ottoman. I wasn't moving it to the middle of the room so I could jump, I was moving it behind the couch so I could get on it and turn on the light switch. I impressed her with my industriousness. She said I was a clever little girl.
Hope we have more days together like today.
