# facetime fun

Today was the last day of summer for my niece Lily and, while we “Facetimies” all the time, we do a special Summer-Send-Off session before she goes back to school. It’s tradition. This girl made me “Aunt NoNo” five years ago and it baffles me that she’ll start kindergarten tomorrow. Today she met her new teacher and I thought that’s what she wanted to tell me about, but she had other plans. Here’s a glimpse of today’s conversation with my favorite girl. (These quotes have not been altered to protect the innocent.)

Hi, NoNo, want to put on these glasses and look at my sharks?

Hi, NoNo.

Guess what? My new teacher has FIVE cats…

*sigh* I can’t wait to be a big sister. (Baby Boy arriving November 2013!)

Oh, NoNo…

Andguesswhat? Wanna come to my room and watch Love It or List It?? (Blair Witch Facetime now commencing)

Okay, let’s turn it on. Sissy with the Wings is the TV. Designer Hilary tries to make them love it, but David tries to make them list it. “List it” means they sell it. “Love it” means it’s their house. (Hahahahah! Turn off the HGTV, Booh!)

Andguesswhat? My Momma said it’s time for lunch. Want to watch me eat?!?!

Here’s some blue jello I made with my Daddy.

Now, tell me about your adventures, NoNo. I’d love to hear them. (She sounds just like Booh.)

**insert tales of Utah, mountains and skiing** Maybe I’ll ski with Daddy and Mikey Joe and you and Momma can stay inside and drink hot chocolate. (She’s on to something here.)

Momma: NoNo has to go, tell her you love her very much.
Lily: Bye.

Oh, Lily. I hope you have a great first day of Kindergarten tomorrow. …andguesswhat?… I love you very, very much.
