Me & JP, S is for Sleepover…

JP is our youngest grandson who turned five in September. IMG_1763He and his mom and dad lived with us while they were building their house a year ago. Though they’ve moved into their new house now, we still get to pick him up from preschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays and spend the afternoon with him. Next year he’ll be in kindergarten all day. He’s so full of fun and remarkably wise for his years!

For Blogging A to Z, I’ll be sharing some of our many conversations over the last few years.  I hope you enjoy.

JP:  Nana, can I sleepover pretty soon?  I haven’t been over for a sleepover in a really long time.  I’ve only had like three sleepovers.  And one time I threw up!  (He did and you can read about that here!)

Me:  I know you’ve stayed over more than three times!  And what about the time you stayed here while your house was being built?  That was like hundreds of sleepovers and you even had your own room!

JP:  Nana, it’s not a sleepover if Mom and Dad are there!

(So, of course, he’s sleeping over tonight because who could say no?) 🙂

JP:  Let’s play soccer, please, Nana, please??  Nana, Nana, don’t you want to play?  What are we going to do?  I want to do something!

Me:  Okay, well, what if we’re quiet for just a little while?

JP:  I can’t, Nana, I’m a wild boy!  (Running around and trying to kick the soccer ball).

Me:  (Rolling the soccer ball past him).   Oh, look, I got a goal!  I’m winning!

JP:  Nana, no!  It wasn’t your turn!

Me:  (Teasing)  Oh, boo hoo, don’t whine.  I got a goal, I’m winning!

JP:  (Pouting)  Nana, let’s be quiet for a while…

Me:  What are you cooking in there?  

JP:  I’m making pterodactyl and apple rice.  Now that’s my idea of a delightful lunch!

Me:  Oh, darn, and that’s what I was making for dinner…

JP:  Nana, where do pterodactyls go potty?

Me: Um, like birds, I think, you know, maybe they sit on a tree branch?

JP:  No, I think they use the pterodactyl bathroom!

Me:  Well, okay…

Me:  Justin, please stop making that noise!  You’re making Nana’s head hurt.  (He’s making a siren noise over and over…)

JP:  I have a great idea, Nana.  How ’bout you cover your ears?

Me & JP, M is for Man Parts and Mailboxes…

Today is a two-fer.  This is the first post I made about Me & JP, back when he was just three years old…

JP:  Nana, do you have man parts?

Me:  No, I have lady parts like mommy.  You know, girl parts.

JP:  Do you have a butt?

Me:  Yes, everybody does.  Even animals do.  Like Chief and Inga and Tank (our dogs.)

JP:  They have tails, too, Nana, right?

Me:  Right, and bunnies have tails (glad for the subject change.)

JP:  And horses have tails and bunnies have little tiny fluffy tails, right?  (In that high-pitched, squeaky voice)

Me:  Right.

JP:  And I have man parts, right, Nana?

Me:  Yes, you do.

JP:  Right here (grabbing himself proudly, ala Michael Jackson…)

And this is from one of my favorite days when you have to turn away before laughing…

Me:  Guess what?  Before Mommy left for work I saw a skunk crossing the street in front of our house this morning.

JP:  What was he doing?

Me:  He just came across the street and sat by the neighbors’ driveway.  Then I went to tell Papa and the skunk was sitting right by our mailbox.  And a minute later, he went behind Papa’s car!

JP:  But, Nana, why was the skunk by the mailbox?  Was he checking the mail?
