grandma's chuckles - "I Look Reediculeeous!"

Eight years ago I shared the following with you - it brought a smile to my face this morning when I remembered it, so I'm sharing it again.

"On Wednesdays I pick my grandsons up from school, hang out with them, and then take them to my church for the mid-week children's program . . . Kids 'N Action. This program has a bit of a Western 'flair' as children work through the Book of James in five years (one chapter a year) memorizing each chapter and learning about how they are able to put their faith into action.

My middle grandson was four years old, so he was in the 'Little Kids 'N Action' group; this particular Wednesday, each of the children in this group were given a cowboy hat. As we walked to our car after I picked him up, I told him, 'You look cool in your cowboy hat!' To which he replied - in a flat, serious tone - 'I do not look cool. I look reediculeeous.' (I tried to spell it like he said it.)

It took every ounce of self-control I had to not bust up laughing, but I calmly said; 'You do not look ridiculous, you look very nice and cool.'

At this point we were outside and he said; 'I do not look nice or cool, I look reediculeeous; and my shadow looks reediculeeous, too.' His shadow!!!! I smiled (laughing my head off inside) and said; 'Well, I think you look wonderful and definitely not reediculeeous!'

Apparently, my sweet grandson was not a fan of cowboy hats, but his grandma was - and remains - absolutely a fan of him! He makes my heart happy!

What are some of the things your grandchildren say which makes your heart happy?
