Never a dull moment in our house when the little people are around. Lucy spent the night with us tonight and these are just a few of the funny things we experienced.
While watching a Lady and the Tramp video we came to the scene where the grandmother is watching the baby. She thought the dogs were going to hurt the baby because the grandmothers Siamese cats had tried to get up where they smelled the milk and the dogs of course chased the cats and tore up the room. So the
grouchy old bat grandmother kicked the dogs outside. Of course I hear "why" for the millionth time as most of you know only a four-year-old can ask. I explained that she thought the dogs were going to hurt the baby because she didn't know what had happened with the cats. Then Lucy says in a matter of fact voice while looking at me..."yeah, because old people don't know anything, right Grandma?"
Blink, blink! I just didn't know what to say as I tried to smother my laughter. She was so serious and didn't say it in a mean voice but rather a voice that sounded very sorry. Well!! What am I? Chopped liver?
On to Grandad. In a game of hide and seek which she forces him to play for hours it came her turn to hide. She tells him to count and decides to hide in the pantry. In the middle of his counting she hollers "Grandad I need you to shut the pantry door". So he shuts the door and continues to count. After walking around pretending to look for her, sitting down to watch a little television, he finally opens the pantry door and "surprise" finds her. She asked him if he had looked in the bathtub. He told her no and she told him to go look for her in there. He said "but I already found you" and she said "but you didn't look there so go look". So off he went to look for her in the bathtub. This is the only way she could be found. I love how he still went to look in the tub....what a softy.
The last thing....after reading her a bedtime story I gave her a kiss good night and she told me that "this makes my heart happy". Blink!
