grandma's chuckles . . . "I Need a Break From Children . . . "

From the title to this post, you may be thinking I, or another adult, said this statement, but no . . . it was uttered by my four-year old grandson, Caleb! The boys spent Friday here at my house, had a sleep-over and then Saturday afternoon, we took them home. On the way we discovered their parents were thinking about having a bonfire at our house (we live in the country with plenty of room for bonfires and they live in the city - not so much bonfire room!)

So, we asked the boys if they wanted to go home and then come back later with their parents, or return to our house with us. Caleb wanted to stay with us and his brothers decided to go home - (Josiah was hoping to do chores to earn points to get out of being grounded). As we pulled up to their home, Caleb sighed and said, "I need a break from children." He then smiled at me and said, "Adults are okay."

I will be laughing about this for some time!
