I know you might not believe this, and I know how ridiculous it sounds, but I want to share with you something me and Kaitlyn did. Kaitlyn and I would often do silly things that only she and I would do. Sometimes some silly thing we started in her childhood continued on to teenage years on into her adult years. We had so many inside jokes with each other that made being with her so much fun.
Since Christmas is coming on, it reminded me of something Kaitlyn and I used to do. There is this Christmas song that we would sing all the way through with her doing part, then me doing part, taking turns and so on. Only……..we didn’t sing it…..we meowed it all the way through in the exact tune of the song. Not just a little bit of the song, but all the way through.
The strange thing about it was, we rarely did it at Christmas time. Most of the time it would be some random time like in the middle of July or something. Just out of the blue, one of us would start the song off and there we’d go, meowing this beautiful song.
The last time I saw her this past April, I actually thought about this song and that we had not done it for a while, but I never took the chance to start the meow off, but I know for sure we had done it at least within the past year. We were always huge cat lovers, so we were just silly.
It’s things like this that endeared me so much to this wonderful being that I had the privilege of being her mother for 23 years. The special and silly things we used to do like this are endless and I will miss them SO much. I already do. Oh to meow with you once again Kaitlyn……
Wonderful, dignified, cultured, intelligent medical school student….meowed with me. That was my daughter.
I did not even know the name of this song, only the tune, but I searched on iTunes until I found it, got the name, and found this beautiful guitar rendition of the song.
Meow Kaitlyn, I love you.
