Preparing Selam

We leave Thursday!

We’ve been trying to prepare Selamnesh both for the journey and for being a big sister. Here are some of our conversations:

Grandma (AKA Moo): We’re going to get Dian and bring him to your house!

Grandma: We can take Dian swimming when he comes. Selam: Bring him here, and I teach him to swim.

Grandma: We’re going to take the train at the airport and then two airplane rides. Selam: No, just train.

Selam: What in here? (pointing to a box in the garage) Grandma: Dian’s car seat. Selam: No! Not Dian. My car seat.

Stay tuned for the conversation when they meet!
