I am rarely away from my children long enough to have to speak to them on the telephone. I can't even remember the last time I had to talk to them. This weekend my mother in law was kind enough to keep the kids over night while Frank and I stayed up at the old house and got some packing done. It's hard to pack with the kids around.
Sunday morning I called to see how everyone was doing. First I talked to Ciaran who woke up in the night and was crying for me. My kids NEVER wake up in the night. The next thing I know I was talking to Cormac. When I tell you his speech on the phone was crystal clear. I could understand every word he said. He didn't even sound like a child on the other end. I was surprised at how surprised I was at listening to him. At one point he said "Ciaran, can you quiet down I am trying to talk on the phone and I can't hear with all your talking" LOL It sounded so familiar.....But good for him for speaking up for himself!
Still after all this while I am amazed by certain little things that most people take for granted.
