This story made me tear up a bit. I think it would be wonderful to have Mrs. Robinson in the White House. The girls have had a close relationship with her during this interminable campaign. Logistically that would be almost impossible to maintain were she to remain in Chicago.
And, I guess in a way I am having my own vicarious thrill at the notion of these little girls being in the same household with their last living grandmother. I wish with all my heart that I could give that to Luke. Or for that matter to me. My mama is gone as are all my grandmothers. All before he was even born. When I look at this picture of Mrs. Robinson I just ache with that special loneliness I suspect that only those who have lost our mothers feel. I think this family should enjoy the time with her to the fullest, and hope they choose to do this.
