Ode To Kiki
Well the day finally came.... I finally got to meet Kiki in person! You know Kiki... the sweetest person in the blogosphere! And let me tell you Kiki did not disappoint. If you can believe it she might have been even better live... you kind of forget how important gesturing and facial expression can be when you're in bloggerland.
#1 Kiki was kind enough (and generous enough considering the price of gas) to drive 2 hours each way to meet up.
#2 Kiki didn't mind having to talk over the sound of Baby crying into my shoulder while she pushed the much-too-big-for-a-stroller Kid... this can be a stumbling block even amongst people you know very well (ahem... Mr F).
#3 She stepped right in and won Kid's little heart right over... which is saying something as my mother can attest as she is not always so smitten with new adults. She was willing (and seemingly happy) to play with Kid for hours in a much-too-short-for-Kiki faux castle (which was worth the trip alone, people... the castle... not Kiki having to stoop over for hours that is)
#4 Kiki is surely the greatest aunt on planet Earth. Kid even told me that she "loves her".
#5 Getting the opportunity to have some adult companionship on a day that could have involved me both carrying a sobbing toddler and pushing a giant 5 year old in a stroller on cobblestone roads was the greatest gift of all!
