Max’s Musings

Driving home on Friday with Max in the car.  He is talking about Oh Canada Papa and,he sounded a little down.  Mahmaw and Papa were in Portland to visit his cousin, baby Ginny.

“Can I call Papa?”  (Poppa Gardner dials the number and hands Max the phone.)  He talks to Papa and Mahmaw and Aunt Megan.

me:  “Max, you miss your Papa and Mahmaw, don’t you?”

a little boy sigh, followed by a quiet “yeah”.

me:  “Max, do you miss Nana when I am gone?”

“I dunno… you never go anywhere!”

I need a vacation.
