When I was in MO, we ordered pizza and I went to pick it up. Addie is quite attached to mommy but I had been there several days and she was warming up to me. When I started to go get the pizza, she wanted to go. I didn’t think she would do it but she did. We strapped her in and I was trying to keep talking and talking so she wouldn’t say “Where mommy go?” I started singing “the pizza song”. We’re going to get a pizza! We’re going to get a pizza. Then I would add in goofy stuff like “It’s gonna have pepperoni. It’s going to be so yummy!” And when I’d get to the “We’re going to get a pizza” part, Addie would sing with me. We did that all the way there, while waiting at the drive through and on the way home.
We got home and we sang our song for Nicole and Chad. Nicole called me the other day and she was cracking up. It’s been two months since I was there. She said she and Addie were singing and they sang every song they knew and she said “What do you want to sing now?” and Addie said “The pizza song!”
Made me want to get in the car and drive over there so I could sing along with her!

Just catching up with my blogs since thanksgiving………you can give Boots an urine acidifier. Check with your vet. I give Chloe the Smelly Basset DL-Methionine at night in her food. I can’t remember what we gave the cats. Not sure if a cat would eat it easily though, check with your vet for cat stuff they will take. It stops the infections almost totally. She gets one or two a year now, compared to 2 a month!
Your granddaughter is cute. I know you miss her.

Addie’s such a pretty little girl. It’s amazing what they remember sometimes. You will probably be “Pizza Grandma” from now on. Not such a bad thing.
I was happy to read in a previous post that Boots will be OK. We had a cat die of what I suspect was a blockage. He was fine on the Friday, hubby noticed him staying close to the litter box on Sat. afternoon, but I was at work and had to hustle to get to his brother’s benefit after work. Thought the cat was outside but he wasn’t anywhere around when I got home. He had died between the time hubby saw him in the afternoon and the time we got home around nine. I still feel bad about it, we let him down big time.

That is the most adorable story.
Love the pizza song! I’ll bet you’ll be singing it again the next time you’re there.

When my daughter and her husband where stationed in Japan 15 years ago.. my then 3 year old granddaughter and I recorded songs before they left… I sent recordings of books I read and the books…. when they came home after that tour of 4 years. She and I and my granddaughter born there never missed a beat… they ran to me off the airplane…. So different now with cell phones and facetime.. but I am so glad we kept so in touch during those years… now those girls are 18 and 15 and we are closer than ever… love those girls…

That is so cute. Did they record her singing ti for future reference when she is older? I hope so cause once she passes this age you never get that time again or those moments.
She is looking more and more like Chad each day. So cute with those eyes and hair. Makes you just want to love on her and give her kisses all over. I know been there and done that but would love to be doing it again. Cherish her she is a jewel.
You are always making such happy memories with Addie. Love this!! You are an awesome Grandma!
