Out of the Mouths of Babes

langstons-to-xmas-decorations-0541Don’t you just love what comes out of the mouths of babes?  I just love a good conversation with my granddaughter Madeline.  She is 4.5 years old and she’s very girly and sensible and is careful about the  things she says and does.  I think she’s a model child if you ask me.    I said she is very pink and girly but likes to fish, and handle worms and skate and hang upside down  over the monkey bars at the park (quite unlike girly) and wrestle with her dad etc. 

Last night I picked her up to share a “girl’s evening” together.  Because I’ve been busy with this “spring” cleaning I thought we’d pick up a pizza and have that at my place along with a salad.   She thought the Pizza Pizza place was so different to the one she is used to picking up a pizza from with her parents.   She asked if I thought we should eat in the store.  I said sure if she wanted to and she said sure, did I want to??  That settled we did.  We decided as a treat to share a  carton of chocolate milk.  As she sipped from her glass she said that her mom wouldn’t be happy if she was drinking the chocolate milk.  Its full of sugar.  It doesn’t have protein!  She explained protein is full of vitamins and vitamins are good for you.  

In between the meal she had to use the lady’s room so I went in with her.  She was careful not to touch everything because its not that clean she said.  She washed her hands well and on the way out I opened the door.  She told me that door was dirty and that I should have used a paper towel…hmmm… now did I say she is 4.5 years old?

We baked chocolate cupcakes and while they baked we played Junior Kindergarten.  I was one student among 5 other barbie type dolls I have here.   She was the teacher.  She called me “Lea” so I called her Miss Rosemary.  *s*.   For being good we got to choose a special gift.   She has chicken eggs in an incubator at school so of course “our” school had a plastic egg getting ready to hatch in a little box under my lamplight.   We were in the middle of frosting and pouring on 1/2 a container of sprinkles per cupcake when her parents arrived.  Yum….we had a wonderful visit with a grand finale of sharing cupcakes… *s*…   I was so busy playing that I didn’t take any pictures  unfortunately.                            Enjoy your day……  Judi xoxo
