grandma's chuckles - Apparently, I'm "Elderly", We Have a Reader & a Huge Hug!!!

It has been a fun weekend around this grandma's house! The boys came home with Poppa on Thursday to spend the night and hang out with grandma on Friday - my favorite day each week!!!  Thursday night we watched Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension. In the movie Perry bites Dr. Doofenshmirtz and Phineas says, "No, Perry! We don't bite the elderly!!!" Josiah asked me, "What is 'the elderly'?" I told him elderly means "old people", so he thought for a moment and said, "Oh. Like great-grandma and you?" I didn't really want to agree it meant "me", so I asked him, "Hhmmm. What about Poppa?" to which Josiah replied, "Yes, definitely Poppa!!!" Of course I had to smile at his answer!!! :-) I was also very pleased when Josiah showed consideration by offering to re-start the movie when Aunt Tiffany joined us part-way through and he learned she had not watched this movie before.

I had ordered the book, Go, Dog. Go! because besides being a "Seuss classic", it had dogs and cars in it which meant my sweet grandsons would LOVE it - which they do! So, Josiah sat down to read it with me and surprised all of us by actually reading a good portion of the book himself!!!! I didn't know he could read so many words!!! I asked him how he felt about being a reading boy and he said, "I feel really good! I LOVE being able to read! I want to read this book every day!!!" Since this grandma loves books and reading I'm very happy to see this sweet four and a half year old is starting to be a reading person!!!!

Then, Friday after supper when it was time for the boys to go home Momma put Caleb's shoes and jacket on him. Then he turned, looked at me, smiled a HUGE smile, ran to me with his little arms out and gave me a ginormous hug good-by!!! I'm definitely a very happy grandma!!!
