Communication

I know this doesn't seem like much to most, but you have NO IDEA how much it means to our family to hear Claire cry.  Why, you ask?  Because for her, this is a rare occurrence.  I can almost count on two hands (OK, maybe three...) the TOTAL number of times in her life -- 10+ years! -- that I've heard her cry.  It doesn't happen very often, and I'm not sure what triggers it.  Trust me, we've evaluated, over-evaluated, tried to deduce a jillion scenarios which would explain this elusive phenomenon, but we have arrived upon a total of *ZERO* explanations for what makes Claire cry.  All I know is this... it's COMMUNICATION, babyyyy!  And whether it's "positive" or "negative," we.  will.  TAKE IT.


I toooootally love how my Mimi can turn that shit off like a switch.  My girl's an actress, yo.   And you can bet your sweet ass I smothered her with smoochies after her big crying debut on film (which I've tried for YEARS to catch!).  It was short lived, thank goodness. And I got some Buggy-grins shortly thereafter, so it's all good. 

SO in love with my girl!

My heart hugged her so deeply ~ truly touched infinitely. Somewhere I felt a giggle and yet my eyes just had to shed a tear of compassionate communication!
