The irony of spending Father’s Day with Matt’s family wasn’t lost on me. Especially when he called as we were sitting around visiting. High fives for not forgetting your dad though. The power of mother’s intuition is strong as just when I was going to holler for Braiden to get the ringing phone that no one could get to I froze, knowing exactly who it would be. Freak out on my part averted heh. He did not however, want to speak to B – due to calling from work (double five). I would’ve suggested that over my dead body but his mom is a kind soul. Really believing previous conversations and “what should I say”s as fact not fantasy. It is always heartbreaking to see her deflated by this stuff – I’d rather talk about colonoscopies but I know she needs to and I guess with me because I’ll understand. They all do, apparently the statute of limitations on me not being able to utter his name has ran out and it’s a free for all to discuss with me. Sure I do understand without you having to “explain”, but I don’t want to remember, y’all.
But I digress…It was a really wonderful weekend, spent with all our family really with several different functions. Little MK had no trouble digging into her gifts at her 2nd party, what a girl! She gave both her brother and grandpa (neat freaks) a fit digging into her cake – up the nose and all. No asking for a fork like her brother!
Ending such a busy weekend sitting outside on the back steps watching the kids run and play (and scrape the knees, be covered in grass stains…) was a perfect cap. Why can’t they all be like that!
