Hi blog world! As my grandkids (with their parents) have gone off to visit their other grandparents, I suddenly have found the time to blog.
I have had some interesting conversations with my four-and-a-half year old grandson. Recently, before he left to go to his other grandparents (for a week) he asked me--

GS: "Will you miss me?"
Me: " Of course I will. I love you."
GS: "Will you love me even if I was a Tyrannosaurus, or a crocodile?" (This--I think-- relates to his wish to believe in reincarnation after he heard about it).
Me: "Well I guess if I know it's you I will".
Gs: "I promise I won't do anything to you. Supposing I'm a biting black ant, will you still love me?"
Me: "Supposing you forget me and bite me, I might get upset."
Gs: "Never!! How can a grandson forget his grandmother!'

End of conversation :-)

My youngest likes to be reassured. Our script goes like this:

Youngest: Mommy, what if I was a strawberry, what would you do?

Me: I would build you a little strawberry house. I would tell everyone, "Do not hurt my strawberry. His name is (youngest's name), and I love him very much."

He varies what he is, and I vary the house size and type accordingly, but otherwise the dialogue never varies.

Esbee, yes normally the conversation goes along usual lines. It was that last sentence which was totally unexpected!
Thanks for the Christmas wishes all. Season's greetings to you all too.
