The Friday night that Grammy arrived, Meg had just been diagnosed with pnuemonia. Meg and I were supposed to pick her up at the airport, but Grammy decided to rent a car instead, given the circumstances. She pulled into the driveway late at night, but Meg woke up shortly after with an upset tummy. We let Meg crawl around a bit and get reintroduced to Grammy before we all headed back to bed. On Saturday, we ate lunch at McAlister's (Meg adores their Mac n' Cheese) and went to the grocery store. By Sunday, Meg was feeling better enough to go to church...but by Monday she was running a high fever again. That morning, Grammy babysat Meg while I got FOUR cavities filled and then got to accompany us to the pediatrician's office. Tuesday was a school day for me, so Grammy watched Meg again and during the rest of the day while my group finished our presentation. Grammy took Meg to two of her favorite places - Steinmart and Talbot's - so that we could have more room in the house to spread out and work.
Meggie started doing this funny thing while Grammy was here: in her jumparoo, she started jumping with both hands up in the air and then would fling herself backwards - what a rascal!
I love this video that Grammy took with Meg on that Tuesday. These two have a sweet and enduring bond and I love having a little piece of footage with Grammy's voice on it to show Meg when we talk about her grandparents. We love you, Grammy, thank you for sharing your vacation time with us - come back soon!
