We’ve officially entered into the holiday season, and thus “firsts” without my mom have started. Today’s festivity was one of her favorites — our annual Pancakes with Priscilla Breakfast. I expected it to be hard, but we had a good time, which I think she’d have wanted.
Me: Emma Vance, do you know what we’re doing tomorrow?
Me: Going to ride the Pink Pig!
E.V.: Yay! I can’t wait to eat pig marshmallows!!!
Me: Me, too. Yia Yia always loved the Pink Pig.
(pensive four-year old silence)
Me: Yia Yia said she’ll be watching us tomorrow.
E.V.: (wide-eyed) You can talk to people in heaven?!?
Me: Of course!
E.V.: Oh. Can I have regular marshmallows too tomorrow?
Me: Of course. ;)
