"Walk Me Home?"

My grandson has a serious crush!  He can even tell you the exact time he met his crush.  She only lives across the street from us.  Now usually when my grandson is here visiting, they get to play together.  Recently they had a "play date".  This is meerly an innocent way to get together and play at a specific preset time.  The 'date' was a hit and had a great time.  They played a game of "Frog" and laughed and giggled.  It was a delight to hear their laughter.  Then it was time to go home.  Well, when my grandsons little friend asked if he would like to walk her home to which he replie, 'no thanks'. (he is very polite!)  However, he missed his opportunity to see his 'crush' to the door.  As my husband overheard the conversation, he pulled my grandson aside and said, next time a girl asks you to walk her home, you seize the opportunity and walk her home!  Such innocence ~  did I mention he's six years old?  Well that will someday be advice I'm sure he'll listen to with all ears but for now, this Nona is perfectly content to know that he is polite and knows how to say 'no'.  (snicker-snicker!)

Grace For Dinner

As we sat down for dinner last night, we had some good laughs.  My daughter drove to our island house for an overnight visit with our grandsons. The boys had spent the day crabbing and exploring the beach and the island with us as usual. 

Dinner was homemade lasagna. Everyone was plenty hungry and ready to eat. Before starting dinner, I asked my 5 year old grandson if he would say Grace before we started our dinner. He shyly responded that he didn't want to, he was just a little embarrassed in front of the family. 

My daughter turned to our 2 year old grandson to ask if he would say Grace. His response was “Grace”! We all burst out laughing! What a character! Of course that would be his take on Grace. How can a 2 year old know how to be so funny! 

Now my 5 yr old grandson wouldn't be outdone by his younger brother so he did say Grace. His 'Grace' was, “God thank you for our food, a good day, my family and everything.” 

I love my little boys! They are the best and they always leave us laughing!
