Me & JP, Conversations with a Four Year Old…

20160816_12453220160816_12440020160816_124417_001JP is my 4 year old grandson. He and his mom and dad and their English bulldog lived with us while their new house was being built.  One of the best things about having them here was spending time talking with him.  It makes me hopeful for the next generation.  He is so wise and so much fun!   You can find all my Me and JP stories here.

Oh, how I’ve missed babysitting my little JP! He turned four at the end of September and started preschool a few weeks before his birthday.   And we haven’t had a chance to babysit him because of all my health stuff.  But we’re back to our Tuesday and Thursday schedule for now.

Yesterday we picked him up from preschool and went to the park for awhile. He was full of information about school and the good day that he had.  He’s learning to count and the colors in Spanish.  He can already count to ten in Spanish without any help.  I’m pretty sure he will do something totally fabulous with his life, like cure a dread disease or lead the Free World 🙂

###

Me: Did you see Ella at recess? (Ella is his cousin who goes to the same preschool)
JP: Ella was playing dinosaurs and roaring really loud.
Me: So did you play with her?
JP: I played with Mahir. His name starts with an M. You remember him, right, Nana?
Me: I’m not sure.  Did I meet him before?
JP: He’s kind of a little guy.
Me: Ah, well, what did you do with Mahir?
JP: We played dinosaurs and Ella chased us.

###

JP: Nana, what sound does H make?
Me: It makes a ha sound, like hippos.
JP: Or horse?
Me: That’s right!
JP: Well, Hassini starts with an H.
Me: Yes, I think it does.  Is Hassini in your room?
JP: Yes, Nana. She looked pretty today.
Me: She did? What was she wearing?
JP: Her ballet outfit.
Me: She was? Was it pink or purple?
JP: It’s pink. And she put it on all by herself!

###

JP: Nana, want to hear a song?
Me: Sure.
JP: Rain, rain go away, come back another day. It’s the weather.
Me: That was nice, are there more words?
JP: I don’t know.  I don’t think so.
Me: Well, maybe when we get home we can look on the computer.
JP: Or we can just ask my Dad.

    1. I was so excited to spend time with him again. It’s been very confusing for him, the whole nana is sick thing, cause I don’t look sick but I can’t pick him up, etc.
