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…
This is my usual Me & JP page and a special bonus A to Z Challenge story. JP is our youngest grandson who turned five in September. He 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! JP loves to talk about how old everyone in the family is all the time, which, frankly, can be depressing, LOL…
But he’s only five and I’m sure everyone seems so much older than him, even the other grandchildren. His two grandpas are a little more than a year apart in age and my hubby is the older of the two.
So naturally, his other grandpa, Papa B., likes to tease because he is younger. Here’s how one of those talks went recently…
JP: You’re kind of old, aren’t you, Papa?
Papa B.: Well, maybe a little old. But you know who’s even older than me?
JP: Is it Jesus?
(Bah bump bump!)

Today is the last day of the Blogging A to Z Challenge, because, hello, we’re on letter Z! I want to thank you all so much for following along and I hope you enjoyed my stories. I have had such fun pulling these together and in some ways, I’ll miss the challenge of posting daily. Special thanks to the new people who’ve signed up to follow my blog and I promise I will be around to visit everyone soon.
JP: ZUKA ZAMA!
Me: Is that from Lion Guard? Who says that?
JP: Bunga. He’s a honey badger. I love Lion Guard. Look, Nana, I have my Lion Guard shirt on!
Me: I see. I love that shirt. (FYI, The Lion Guard is a cartoon on Disney Junior television, a follow up to their wildly successful Lion King movie. Zuka Zama means “pop up, dive in.” Yes, I looked it up at the Disney site. Who thinks of a honey badger as a character anyway? Other than those incredibly smart, incredibly rich Disney people…)
I’ll leave you with some of my favorite pictures from the last five years!
