To Caca...with love

When my Sister-in-Law Heidi became pregnant with my niece Sidney 3 years ago, my dad loved to talk about what he would be called. The Big V. The Boss. He didn't want to be a typical grandpa. All that talk ended when one day Sidney looked adoringly at him and said "Hi Papa" in a soft dreamy whisper. "Papa" it has been ever since. Well, until Ella started talking. She has renamed my dad "Caca" and she says it with a little gleam in her eye. Although Drew can say Papa, he now calls him 'Caca' as well! My screen saver is a picture slide show and whenever Caca comes across the screen, Ella yells "Caca" from across the room!
