It’s the holidays and yesterday, “The Coach” and I spent some quality time with my mother’s side of the family; “The Jones-Medleys”. It’s funny how you can see yourself and your unique habits mirrored in your kin’s. For example, my 7 years old grand niece at one point took out her notebook and began to write her own observations of the event. My big sister her grandmother said that she always has her notebook with her and she enjoys writing.
At one point she asked us how to spell “freaking out”. All the adults in the room looked around and didn’t answer her. A few minutes later I said… ‘Wait no one answered Amiah.’ She in turn said “Auntie, I moved on and decided to use another word.” My fiancée shook his head and said that he could picture that being something I would do when I was her age. He knows me so well 🙂
