Me: There’s some cranberry juice left. Want some for dinner?
JP: I don’t think I like it.
Me: Do you want to try some?
JP: Okay. Ooh, Nana, it makes my face crumple!
Today is JP’s birthday and I know it looks like he had to make his own cupcakes, but the picture is from another time this year, lol. He’s much more grown up now, but every once in awhile he still cracks me up. This happened the other day.
Me: Is Thursday your special day of reading at school?
JP: Yep, we have to bring six books. And a pillow and blanket and flashlight!
Me: So you’re going to spend the whole day just reading?
JP: Nana, that’s silly. When we do math we would have to say “One plus once upon a time!”
Ba bump bump!
My grandson, the fashion critic, always looking his best!
Mommy: Guess what? When we were at Open House I signed up to be a mystery reader in your class! (Parents surprise their child one day and come to school to read a story.)
JP: Well, okay, but you’ll try to look your best, right?
JP: I mean, you always look nice…
(That boy! And, yes, the beautiful blonde in the picture is Mommy!)
JP: Nana, are you going to keep the Corvette now or are you going to sell it?
Me: I think I will keep it for now. That way I can take you for a ride in it.
JP: Papa let me drive sometimes.
Me: He did?
JP: Well, he let me put one hand on the steering wheel and help. But you don’t have to go real fast like Papa. It might make you sick.
Me: You’re so good to me! Did you like it when Papa drove fast?
JP: Yeah, we would yell “Whee doggies” and laugh!
A tough act to follow…
I’ve really been having grandchildren withdrawal symptoms lately! JP is in all day kindergarten now and does martial arts twice a week so we asked if we could pick him up after school Friday and have him overnight.
We had such fun playing games and watching cartoons, the requisite mac and cheese dinner and hearing jokes that only a kindergartener could appreciate!
Saturday morning he kind of strummed Papa’s guitar and sang a song he says he made up himself. If this is a real song from some television show, I don’t know it. And looking up “curious boys” online took me to places I didn’t want to go! Don’t look, just take my word for it!!
I asked him to sing it again so I could get the words down perfectly. He still cracks me up and I love him to pieces!
Once there was a curious boy
He wanted to know what the world was about
He asked his mom, he asked his dad,
And they had no clue!
This was a very short song but it stops right now!
