All week, we've been waiting to hear whether Mer would be able to snag a spot on the over-crowded flights out of Frankfurt, Germany to Kolkata. The news is in: she is on her way!
L. has been pretty distraught anytime I have even mentioned the possibility that Mer might not make it. She told me how wrong I was in my earlier post: "Mommy, I just don't care about presents at all. I just really, really miss Aunt Mer."
This is going to be the best Christmas ever!
