Love It

I just called my Mom's house to check in on my son. He got on the phone and talked a million miles a minute about something they had done. I couldn't really tell you what it was about...I didn't catch most of it. If I were there in person, I know I would have understood everything, but over the phone...I missed most of it. Then he blows me a kiss and hands the phone over to my Mom.

"He totally got that story exactly right...he didn't miss a thing!" she tells me. And I LOVE that. I love that she knows him so well, and totally gets him, and that she understood all of that rapid rambling as a true account of their afternoon. I'm filing this away in my memory under All the Reasons I Love My Mother.
