I checked in with Grandma Meg and Peepaw tonight to see if the kids were behaving.
My dad answered: “Hellllo.” He sounded in good spirits. The kids screamed “Hello” to me in the background. My dad put it on speaker and a cacophony of voices came across the line. Maria informed me that she ate spaghetti and meatballs and garlic bread at Theo’s restaurant. Mario informed me that they made a fort and dug for gold in the gravel driveway. Dad chimed in to confirm that they were being good and sweet. Meg informed me that dad and Mario lay in the Study together and look at the stars. Maria surely makes Mama Meg play barbies with her.
We meet them at noon tomorrow for the drop-off at Olive Garden. Jon and I are excited to see them. Maria and Mario do not know how lucky they are to have three sets of grandparents that provide them such unconditional love… and spaghetti and meatballs!
