so i’ve mentioned before how uncanny jovie has been. people who know us in person knows about the time she read my mind and asked “mommy, is gum healthy?” at the moment i thought about gum- even though we don’t chew it in our house; and at that time she had never had a piece herself….
but a couple of weeks ago she did it again. it prompted me to ask if it’s ESP if my mind is blank.
to be fair- i don’t believe in ghosts or ESP or anything like that. however, i am documenting a lot of stuff jovie has done through the years just in case she gets her own TV show in the future.
so for who knows what reason she asked me about MY grandparents. she asked what they were called, and i told her i had a Gramma Gursey, a Nana, and 2 Papas. I explained that i never knew either of the grandfathers. and for some reason that wasn’t what she had in mind. she wanted to know their real names. so i ran down the list. i said: Ida, Catherine, Julius and……. ummmmm hmmmmm uh oh how do i not remember my grandfather’s name? wow. ……… ummmmmmm
just as i was about to pick up the phone to text a sis, jovie said “Charlie??”
at that exact moment i remembered his name was Charles. and i freaked out a little.
