Me & JP, P is for Pterodactyl…

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.

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 and JP, Conversations with a 3 1/2 year old…

J20151005_103457P is my now 3 1/2 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.

 

A few quick JP updates.  He is fascinated with the bathroom lately (still!)

 

JP:  Granny sits in a chair a lot.  (That is his great grandma, who is in her 90s.)

Me:  You mean a wheelchair?

JP:    Yes.  And Granny goes potty anywhere she wants!

Me:  Really??  (I found out later Granny has a portable commode, lol.  So anywhere she wants to put the commode…)

JP:  Nana, I have on Mickey underwear.  There’s a big Mickey on the back side of my butt and a little Mickey on my man stuff.

Me:  Good to know, thank you!
