Hello?

Summer 2008
Yesterday my four year old niece decided to call me. Not entirely weird but usually I'm the one who calls or my sister is the one who prompts the kids to call me. Not yesterday - Isabelle out of the blue decided we needed to chat. And chat we did - for an hour and 15 minutes! And what do you talk to a four year old about? Isabelle's pups, Daisy and Bo, Barbies, the zoo and our favorite animals at the zoo, what was the rest of the family up to, and of course she sang me a song or two. In order to sing the songs, she needed to change her outfit. The funniest part of the whole conversation is when she denied her older brother access to me.
J: "Can I talk to Aunt Kara?"
I: "Nope, I want to talk first."
J: "Please?"
I: "Nope."
and repeat.
This was after an hour of talking.
And the very best part of the conversation?
"I just wanted to talk to you."
