It was so cute. The phone had been left off the charger, so it died mid ring and we had to wait for it to go to the the machine. Her friend was adorable. "Hey this is Alice's friend *****. She gave me her number to call her and I wanted to call her and see how she was doing and if she was doing anything and if she wanted to talk. She can call me back at 555-555-555. Oh 5555."
If you ever need proof that your 8 year old is still a baby, listen to their sweet little voices on a voicemail. Alice asked me "Mommy, why are you grinning like that?"
