My mom came to visit and help with the kids while I was away at Alt last week (more on that tomorrow I promise!). She goes by Caleigh instead of Grandma which reflects both her Irish roots and her sense of humor (Caleigh means "old woman" in Gaelic).
The kids had not seen her in six months, yet Matilda kissed and hugged her constantly from the moment she walked in the door until the minute she said goodbye. Matilda is so sweet and lovable, but I also have to thank FaceTime for making long distance relationships a bit more palatable.
Thank goodness for technology and, most of all, for wonderful Caleigh's willingness to travel for those priceless hugs and kisses.
