During a discussion with a co-worker about this week's topic she said, "You haven't written about your daughter in quite awhile." That got me thinking. Why haven't I mentioned my little princess lately? Oh! Maybe because she NEVER calls her mother!
There was a time when she was in college I could entice her with food, money, stories about her little nephews or threats of a personal visit, all of which would result in a "home visit."
These days I believe I must become more creative. Here are some ideas I've come up with
Email her a picture of my mail order groom.
Win the lottery and mail her a copy of the newspaper announcement.
Call and leave a voice mail that I'm pregnant ... and it's a girl!
Text message that I heard a rumor she's been removed from Grandpa & Grandma's will.
Move downtown to a condo in a wealthy 20 something neighborhood, complete with a built in kegerator. Hey! This just might be a win-win....
