Do you need a break from the daily KBR crap?? Here is a conversation I had with my 5 year old grandson last night after his bath. I had to share it. It is just too adorable.
Let me set the stage. Keelen has just finished his bath and I am trying to get him out of the tub so I can get him into bed.
Me: Come on it’s time to get dried off and get your pajamas on.
Keelen: Grandma I don’t want to wear THOSE pajamas!
Me: OK…which one DO you want to wear?
Keelen: I want to wear my Army Camo ones!
Me: OK (I head off to get the “Camo ones” thinking what in the hell is the difference!)
Keelen: Thanks Grandma. I really need to wear these ones tonight.
Me: Why? (Now I’m curious)
Keelen: Cuz I am going to sneak out later and get ice cream and I don’t want you to see me.(He’s as serious as a heart attack)
Me: You think so huh!! You do know that Grandma can see right through Camo!! (I am trying so hard not to laugh because he is so serious)
Keelen: That’s just not fair. How am I going to sneak around and get away with stuff? (Tears welling up in his eyes. I wanted to say, “Oh I’m sure you will figure it out.” But didn’t want to encourage him. )
Me: It’s not OK to sneak around try to get away with stuff. Now, It’s bedtime…
I got him dressed and sent him off to bed.
I was impressed and concerned at how thoroughly he had thought this whole thing through. He was totally serious!
If that doesn’t put a smile on your face…you’re just not human.
