17/30: Greema and Grandpa

When Seth was a baby/young toddler, we couldn’t get him to refer to Jim’s mom as anything.  Not Grandma, not Nana, not Memaw, not any moniker you can imagine for grandmother.

But for about the last 9-12 months, the way he says “grandma,” in his Ohio-meets-Tennessee accent, comes out as gree-maw.  And we’ve waited and waited for it to change, because it just sounds so backwoods and hick-ish, but…..

Greema it is.

And he loves her like no one else.

Normally, we wouldn’t encourage pouting under any circumstances, but it was just so hard to scold him for his sourpuss face after church, when it was so clearly due to John and Linda’s departure.

Not too much longer, and we’ll be together again.  We love you guys, and we’ll see you in a month!
