All this wedding stuff sort of made me nostalgic, so, I’m reaching way back in my memory to a time when Annie was probably about 4 years old.
I had taken a really fun cruise earlier in the year and someone I’d met on board ship had invited me to Miami to spend a few days. I had talked about it with the adults in the house and hadn’t really realized that any of the kids had noticed or were listening to those conversations.
After one of the discussions had taken place about whether or not I was going to do, Annie came to me crying. She asked me if I was really going to go to Miami. I said I didn’t know. She said, “I want to go to Your-ami, too!”
It made me smile. It still makes me smile. Now, any time we need to make reference to Miami at our house, we call it Your-ami, in honor of a toddlers unique use of the English language.
