More conversations with Emily

We are back from vacation and have just been recuperating from busy-ness these past five days. We had a great time visiting with Holly, Mike (and Frank their new dog) and working our way through as many Paso Robles wineries as possible last weekend. Awesome.

While we were out there, they reminded us of a conversation they had with Emily last Christmas. I don't recall all the circumstances but the best part is Emily's punchline anyway. I'll try to do it justice.

Emily came into the room and had been crying.
Holly: Oh honey, why are you crying?
Emily came up with something, probably about what Mommy wouldn't let her do or what Lucy was doing.
Holly: Oh, wait, there's a tear here.
Emily, nodding sagely: Yes, there are always tears on my face.

This past Saturday morning we met Erin at the local mall to give the girls back. There's always plenty of hoisting in and out of the van giving last minute kisses and hugs.
Me: Oh Em, I forgot to give you a kiss!

Emily: Oh Grandma, I think you did it wrong. Wanna try again?
Suitably corrected, we smooched again on the lips.

It's truly a tough life she leads, what with the abuse and all.
