My precious little niece is just over 2 years old.
Every time we see her she reaches for our phones and chants "Gia, Gia, Gia" because we have the wallpaper set as a picture of Gia. It's so cute! Kids really soak up more than we know. Anyway, it never occurred to me that this "Gia spotting" would happen outside of her seeing our phones. But it did!
Recently, my MIL had E (my niece) in Walmart, where an Asian woman was standing in front of them in the checkout line. E begins to point at her and say "Gia, Gia." E thought the woman was Gia...ha! The woman, not knowing what was going on, cooed back at her. My MIL then explained to the cashier that E was talking about her cousin halfway around the world whom she'd never met.
I'm anxious to see how the real life meeting will go down.
