My 6 yo GS #2 has figured out the art of fine dining, Al Fresco style. He loves to eat every meal on the patio or as he calls it, “out in the open.” I guess that’s because it’s open for God and all the neighbors to see. You’d better bring your best Sunday manners when you come to eat with us!
My soon-to-be 3yo GS received a great suit of armor for Christmas (he’s very into castles and knights), plastic, of course. He also received a lovely cape with his initial stitched on. One evening, he came downstairs dressed in full armor with the cape wrapped around him. At the bottom of the stairs, he announced, “I am a cold knight!” and then went on about his business! No further explanation needed!
Several years ago, I was standing in the kitchen talking with Gramps and Big Boy, my son. GS #2, who was then about 3yo, was on the floor busily playing with a truck and paying us no heed. I don’t remember the exact gist of the conversation, but I do recall saying to Big Boy, “How many times do I have to tell you?” Without a single second of delay, GS piped up from around our feet, “Thirteen and a half!” That answer has been a standing joke in the family ever since!
