A Message from Mom: It is mid afternoon and I am busy at my desk at work. Just as I started to leave my seat, I hear my cell phone ringing in my purse. Very few people have my number, so when it does ring, I know it is important. When I look at the caller ID, it indicates it is Sarah calling. My first thought was, "Hurray, she did it!!!"
She had mastered answering her phone, but we were still working on her calling out. It is more difficult as she has to scroll down through the numbers in the address book to locate who she wants to call and then hit send.
As soon as I said "Hello Sarah," she started talking so fast I could not understand a word she was saying. And the more she was talking the more excited her voice was getting. I started to panic. I said to her, "Sarah...Sarah...Sarah...stop talking and listen. "Are you hurt?"
"No mom. Didn't you hear me. I said there was a package on the porch. It's for me. I opened it. It is a blanket..."
