Olivia and my aunt Pattie (a.k.a. Pabbie) have always had a very special relationship. To be quite honest, anyone who has ever known Pattie has had a special relationship with her, but this one is SPECIAL. Olivia loves going to Pattie and Alvin's house for a few days here and there and becomes quite the little "farm baby." The last time she was headed down there to spend the night, Olivia and I had a little conversation that went something like this:
Olivia: Mommy, you need to have a talk with Pabbie.
Me: Okay, Olivia, what about?
Olivia: Well, Pabbie lets me do anything I want at her house. She lets me eat as many popsicles as I want and she doesn't make me go to bed until really late. Maybe you should talk to her about how we do things, I don't think she knows.
I almost fell down on the floor I was laughing so hard, then I realized I was in the bathroom at a Cracker Barrel and tried to contain myself. But she's right. Olivia definitely rules the roost when she is in Spring City. And I would never tell this to Olivia, but I love it!
