Conversations With My Grand Son

My grand son did not have school on Friday and he wanted to come for a visit with grandma.  My daughter went to his parent-teacher conference on Thursday.  He is doing very well in third grade.  He has rather amazing math skills.  He wanted to tell me all about it.  He said, "And there was some not so good stuff in there, too."

"Behavior stuff, like not paying attention sometimes and being a bit silly?" I asked.

"Yeah."

"Well, you are getting your work done and it's good work too so don't worry too much."

After my friend picked on me for doing a cleanse, I asked at dinner time, "So, do you think I am crazy for eating this cleanse food?"

He made a thoughtful face. "Yes, actually I think a cleanse is crazy...But I'm a kid!  You're a grown-up.  I say go for it!"

On the way back to his home, he commented, "Grandma, you have your seatbelt on.  That's good.  Do you always wear your seat belt in the car?"

"Yes."

"I do too. but some adults don't.  I am glad you are safe."

Maybe he was worried about saying the cleanse was crazy because then he said,
"I really love you.  I am glad you do things that are so healthy."

I would have given him such a big hug just then, but I was driving so it was not safe to do so.  But that guy just warms my heart.

  1. He's a boy, so he'll have the occasional "behavior problem." That's not a sexist comment; it comes from my favorite children's librarian. So, not to worry. Btw, how cute is that photo!
