Auntie S2. We really love you!
Auntie S2 lives far away in the land of politics & the Pentagon. That damn Pentagon interrupts our daily chat everyday. Stupid. That and AT&T…that sucks too.
We’ve known each other since about 1988…and we’ve been best friends since. It all started with a thunder-storm and some Goobers, and in a whirlwind, I was borrowing her car sweater. Really – a knit wool sweater with cars on it. Why did our parents think sleep away camp was the place for knit wool sweaters?! Anywho – from then on my mom was driving me for weekend play dates and sleepovers at S2’s house.
Even though we’ve never lived too close to one another, we’re like sisters. She’s a great best friend and I feel very lucky to have her be an auntie to my A. She handmade A’s first blankie and its beautiful, she came up to spend the weekend with us when we brought A home from the hospital, she talks me down from my ledge every time I feel overwhelmed, and in general she’s my lifesaver!
Since my brain has not returned to full functionality since A was in my belly, I completely forgot my camera when we had our most recent playdate with Auntie S2 and Uncle B, so my photos are out of date, but even without photos, this Auntie is a very special person and A is a lucky girl to have S2 to love her!
(oh yea – and she has a new pup Boo….who is freaking adorable….he’s a good boy (any boy poodle is a good boy if they so graciously let my T try to hump their head 🙂 )
