grandma's chuckles . . . Poppa is Great, but the Pilot is Necessary!

Eleven years ago a couple from my church hosted an event for our Sunday school class which included airplane rides. I ended up staying home with our younger grandson - we forgot to get his car seat, but my husband was able to go for awhile with our older grandson. Being three, he wanted his poppa to go up in the airplane with him. While the pilot was getting ready to start the plane he was joking around by saying he wasn't a pilot, but he was sure he could figure out how to fly the plane. My grandson gave this some thought then said, "Poppa, maybe it would be a good idea if you get out of the plane, so the pilot can get in your spot!" (He didn't ask to get out himself - just thought a pilot would be a good idea). Of course his poppa told him our friend was really a pilot and was just joking around, so then our grandson was ready to fly! 

He may have been three years old, but he knew while having poppa in the plane with him was a wonderful thing, something he would like, having the pilot was NECESSARY! :^)

I love how memories of times like this continue to bring joy to my heart. What memory do you have of something your grandchildren said and/or did which brings joy to your heart?
