Is your Dad picking you up?

No card today...just a sweet little story. Well, it might not seem so sweet to Mr Scrappymo!

I picked up Little Mr P from kindergarten last week. His class was doing graduated entry so he was done about an hour before Little Miss C.
As we were walking home together, he asked me if my Dad was picking me up. I replied that Grandpa was picking me up. He said that is who he meant! I gently told him that Grandpa is my husband, not my Dad.

He looked a little perplexed for a moment and then asked "If he is your husband...how come he has grey hair"    lol

Thank goodness for my hair colour...that is all I can say!

This story really brought a smile to my face, Maureen.
I will share one with you too. My grandmother passed away when my nephew was about 3 years old, and he was coming with us for the funeral. We had explained that his great-grandmother now was in heaven, and he seemed very satisfied with that. During the service when the coffin was being lowered he burst out - and you know how a child's voice can be heard loud and clear in a church - "They're bringing her DOWN??? I thought she was going UP - to heaven!"

Teehee that is so cute.

Yep, definitely a cute story. My GP said when he & his wife were expecting their 1st child, a little neighbor asked his wife, why her "daddy" wasn't out mowing their grass! Kids come out with the darndest things...they are so honest in their thoughts. Refreshing isn't it? Bet Mr. P is glad you are home to pick him up once more. TFS

They say the cutest things don't they. My daughter was telling me today that her 4yr old son noticed her new pj's and asked who bought them. She replied by saying that her Mum & Dad did. He looked a bit perplexed by that and demanded to know who they were. When my daughter told him that they were his Nan & Gran he burst into tears and said "they can't be I don't want to share them with you!" hugs Mrs A.
