A series that was inspired by the little talks I have with my granddaughters. They always have the cutest things to says, and kids say the darndest things!!
So for the past 3 weeks, I’ve been getting weekly calls from Elizabeth my almost 1-year-old grand baby. Sometimes I get 3 calls a night, it’s always so much fun talking with her. Well more like listening to her squeal, make little noises and laugh. She is such a cutie!
Two nights ago I got another little call from her, she normally makes a little noise when I say hello and I know it’s her calling. Not this time, she immediately started making all kinds of sounds. I think she really wanted to talk! I said hello Elizabeth, how are you beautiful baby. She said clear as day “Hello” I started giggling and got a little teary eyed. I have heard her say things like mama, dada, baba.. you know baby talk. But a straight up “Hello” was new. I talked to her for a couple of minutes, just asking random questions like how she was, where was Kayden, her mom, etc. She continued to answer me with her little noises and laughs, then she hung up and called back. I think she likes hearing me say Hello Beautiful Baby in my high-pitched squeaky voice. ( : I talk a bit longer and she hangs up, and yep you got it calls back. (this was a 3 call night)
Now here’s the thing, since long ago she has had a love for cell phones. As she got older she would pretend like she was talking on it. When ever she gets a chance she’ll grab anyone’s phone and play with it. The interesting bit behind my little story is, I know my daughter talks to other people, so my number probably isn’t the last one she called. But Elizabeth always manages to call me… Speed dial? or is it a sign Elizabeth just needed to hear grandma’s voice?
Have to ever gotten a call from a child, or grandchild that you knew wasn’t old enough to actually dial your number? Have you had a memorable conversation with your child or grandchild? Did you ever wished you had documented little things like this for them to later read?
Stay tuned for more Conversations With Grandma…
