Last Thursday evening Dom and I had the unusual pleasure of babysitting our grandchildren on a “school night”.  We did all the things grandparents do to try and make a school night visit special.  We made pizza, had strawberry shortcake, and rented a movie.  We even allowed them to play in Dom’s 20 year old sport’s car that is stored in the garage.

CAR

The next morning started with a laugh from a very a very early breakfast conversation.  Dom had left for the gym which is what he does every day.  Lucas asked me why Pop Pop goes to the gym every day.  I replied that Pop Pop likes to stay fit because a long time ago he was fat and he decided he would never be fat again.  I said, ” Lucas you should ask Pop Pop to show you his picture from those days when he was fat.”

Well Lucas looked at me in horror and replied, “I don’t think so MeMe.”  “I think that would be too disturbing for me to see.”

I think I am still chuckling over the thought of Dom’s old pictures being rated PG.

Like old Art Linkletter used to say, “kids say the darndest things”.

Wishing you loads of innocent chuckles this week,

Bernadette

These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. Children are using more sophisticated language these days. The word “disturbing” is a complex word, and it makes us wonder how children pick such words up. I suspect the media has a lot to do with it, but not always. Sometimes their parents are great role models (and grandparents, I might add!”
