I'm afraid he's rapidly outgrowing me, Margaret, in more ways than one.

No I don't think so Sharon, he may outgrow you rapidly in stature, but not in wisdom, I will always remember the time spent with my grandmother. Smiling

He sure is a great little guy, we have fun but he somehow always needs to discuss serious things. Keeps me on my toes.

He's 11 inches shorter than I am, wears the same size shoes though.
And borrows my Tshirts.

Next time he's here I'm going to see if he will wear my ATP shirt. I bet he will.

What a wonderful conversation between grandma and grandson. His mind must be working more than 100% all the time. I too would love to see the painting of the Phoenixrising. You are so blessed with having such a smart little man to spend your day with.

Priceless! Sooner or later he's gonna ask about chickens and eggs, or ..... yeah, he'll sure keep you on your toes!

Reminds me of a story about a little girl who was warned about swallowing watermellon seeds because the watermellon would grow inside her tummy. And so, when she was at a gathering somewhere, and there was a very pregnant woman in attendance, the little girl put 2 and 2 together, and exclaimed quite loudly to the woman, "I know what you've been doing!"
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

He already keeps me on my toes, Mary; I just hope somebody talks to him about chickens and eggs before he asks me!!

He's probably already figured it out though!

Such a cute, bright & sweet little boy who won't be little much longer. I always get a little weepy when I read the conversations between you two.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

He already isn't 'little much longer', Anni. That's why I want to hold on tight to his words. Seems like he's growing up so fast. The thought of it makes me a little weepy too.

Weepier still when I see him wearing my Tshirts or a pair of my running shoes when his get watered down by the hose. Sad
