Me & JP, I is for Introduce…

JP is our youngest grandson who turned five in September. He and his mom and dad IMG_1765lived 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, grandsons can’t marry their grandmas, right?

Me:  No, honey.  But you wouldn’t want to anyway.  Your grandmas are a lot older than you.  And we’re already married to your papas.

Someday you’ll meet a nice girl and want to get married.  And when you do, I hope you’ll bring her to my house and introduce her.  You can say, “Nana, this is my girlfriend and we’re getting married.”  And I’ll be so happy for you!

JP:  I should probably say Diane, cause not everybody calls you Nana, right?

(That’s my boy, always thinking, LOL)

Me:  I’m going to make ham for dinner on Easter.  You like ham, right?

JP:  Yes.  I like ham that comes from cows.

Me:  Well, honey, that would be beef.

JP:  Okay, I like that.

Today is a “Guest Post” from my darling daughter-in-law, JP’s mom, that she shared with me recently.  Everyone in the family knows that anything that happens in their lives is fair game for the blog!

Mom:  You really like Ms. Nicole and Mr. Bob, don’t you?

JP:  Ms. Nicole is pretty.

Mom:  She’s very pretty.

JP:  She and Mr. Bob are just good friends, right?

Mom:  Well, no, Ms. Nicole and Mr. Bob are married to each other.

JP:  Oh.  

 

(Sorry, no, I don’t have a picture of Ms. Nicole…)

JP loves going to Bass Pro, a hunting, fishing, sporting goods type store chain in the U.S., 20160223_123029to ride up and down in the glass elevator and to visit the huge bear statue that is fascinatingly anatomically correct.  He also likes all the fish.  There’s a big freshwater tank of dull brown and gray lake and river fish, a huge tank of tropical fish by the restaurant and fish forms stamped on the walkways to the parking lot.  This was our conversation on the way to the car:

Me:  There’s our car.  We need to walk where the fish are on the street.  That’s called the cross walk.  Do you see the fish?

JP:  Nana, say, “Justin, do you see the fish on the street?”

Me:  Okay.   (Playing along.)   Justin, do you see the fish on the street?

JP:  Settle down, Nana.  I see the fish.

Me:  What?

JP:  Nana, do you know what they say in church on Easter?

Me:  No, what do they say?

JP:  They say, “He is risen.  Booyah!”

Me:  I think you mean, “He is risen.  Hallelujah.”

JP:  No, Papa B. said I can say Booyah!  Booyah, booyah, booyah!  (Giggling.)
