This post by a young mother got me thinking about my own little grandson who is becoming more proficient in communication. Every day he comes up with new lines that make life very interesting. Yesterday for instance, he actually pushed away the iPhone placed in front of him while eating ( yes, we know it’s bad but frankly we think it replaces the traditional story of the crow and the sparrow which our grannies used to entertain us with while we were eating) saying that that was not the App he was looking for – IT’S BORING! he averred. We were shocked that he actually knew the word and more astonished by the proper use and intonation!
Children have the most adorable things to say and as one granny told me, her own grandson was quite put off by the constant cuddles and kisses she gave him ( he was a BIG BOY AT THREE didn’t she know????) and actually said to her ” Granny, if you love children so much, why don’t you get married and have children of your own!” Granny whose husband was standing close by, didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
