Eric and I are blessed to have 2 incredible nieces. They are the cutest girls ever (and not that we are biased or anything.) When we first talked about moving to Brasil one of our first thoughts was the nieces-it would be so hard to be away from them for 2-3 years! Madison (the older of the two) will be in school when we get back! While we miss all of our family and friends, it is hardest for us to miss out on watching the girls grow up. Apparently though, Madison is not having as much trouble with the whole situation as we are.
Last night we called and talked to Eric's sister for a little while. Madison wanted to say hi to Uncle, so she got on the phone. The conversation went a little something like this:
Madison: Hi Uncle!
Eric: Hi Madison! How are you?
Madison: Hi Uncle. Guess what? We went to Chuck E. Cheese's yesterday with Nena and Papa.
Eric: Is that right? Did you have fun?
Madison: Yeah. You don't live near my house anymore because you moved to a place far away in Brazzzzzil. But that's okay, we don't need you anymore. There are some kids coming over to my house today and they are my age. There are some older kids too and we are going to have fun playing. So it's okay you aren't here because we don't need you Uncle.
At this point Eric had to hold his hand over the microphone because we were both about to die laughing! She was so matter-of-fact about it all!
So in case you are feeling important or worried about someone missing you too much, well, just call a 3 year old. They'll let you know where you stand in the big scheme of things! Hehehe
We love our Madison and get such a good laugh every time we talk to her!
