I can't believe that it's already Wednesday! Where does the time go? I can't see a thing I've accomplish. OK, that's my gripe. I'll lay it down and move on. Whew!!
Jesse, the oldest grandson, spent a little while with me this afternoon while his brother was at music class. He and I ran a few errands and I was blown away at how much help he can be. He asked me to tell him what we had to do and read my list to him. I did. I thought he was just making conversation but I was wrong. At the grocery store he remembered everything on the list - 12 things - and knew where they were. He didn't ask to stop at the toy aisle nor did he ask for anything from the junk food aisle. I asked him to select the ice cream and he selected a half gallon carton rather than Popsicles "because grown-up folks like real ice cream and kids do too."
We went to another store to get things to re-stock the treat cabinet. He made some excellent choices - well excellent choices for junk food. He also reminded me to check labels so we wouldn't get things with "too much MSG." We made a couple of other stops and he proved himself a real help there as well. When we got home he was front and center to help carry things inside.
This child won't be 6 until October but he's becoming a little gentleman and a honest help to Nana. Did I mention that he opened doors for me?
Yeah, I know. Nana loves to brag but believe me today Jessee deserves it.
