She's here

The Good Granny has arrived. It turns out she was on an aeroplane, which is good as I'm not sure where I would have gone to fetch her had she arrived by balloon.

Bambi leapt straight into her arms, the five months since they last saw each other floating away into the distance as they quickly reaffirmed their bond. Gifts were given, biltong shared, stories told and announcements made (Granny, when I grow up I want to be a tooth fairy).

And now they're curled up together on the couch doing whatever it is that grandmothers and granddaughters do after too-long separations. I have not been invited.

And all is as it should be.

Wonderful. It always made me smile when my mother and my daughter ignored me at the beginning of a visit. I always had Mama to myself after 8pm.

Ditto what Kaycie said! I let Grandma and the girls play and I'll make dinner in quiet peace and then she's all mine after the girls are in bed.

Time to give mom a call and see when he next visit will be!!
