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.

 

 

JP:  Nana, can I play a game on your tablet?

Me:  Sure, in a sec.  Nana just has to finish this word with your daddy in Words with Friends.

JP:  Daddy is your boy, right, Nana?

Me:  Yep, he’s my big boy!

JP: Then it should be called Words with Mommy, right?  And if Uncle Dave plays a game with Daddy it will be Words with Brothers!

Me:  How did you get so smart, my little pumpkin?

JP:  Nana, you’re silly…

I think I see hope for the future of our country after all ❤

    1. So funny, we often thought his dad might! One of my son’s teachers in grade school said she could see him being a judge one day cause he had the art of debate down so well! Justin is so much like him sometimes ❤

        Yes! When my older son was 3 or 4, I had told him that bathroom words were only allowed in the bathroom because I was at my wit’s end (preschool considerably upped his vocabulary) so he would run into the bathroom and let loose all the potty talk he knew. It always made me laugh. 🙂

    1. Wendy, I became a grandma to my husband’s first grandchild in my early 30s. Hubby is a bit older than me 😉 You will adore it, but, yeah, kids are waiting longer to get married and start families 😦

      1. My oldest 28, he’s enjoying bachelorhood. My brother didn’t marry till he was 45…….my mom was beside herself.
        In all fairness, I think babies come along when they are supposed to. I will have to enjoy nieces and nephews, and the enjoyment my friends have in their grandchildren. Thanks for sharing yours!
