Lunch with the little guy

I’ve been invited to join my grandson for lunch at his school today.  Oh what an adventure this will be! (I’ll probably have to follow-up with pictures of this event on another post!) 🙂

He’s in the second grade, an amazing little guy, and I love him with all my heart!

He’s always on the lookout for “treasure”. A reminder to me that I can find “good stuff” in the most unusual places, I just have to keep looking!

Below is a little story that reminds me so much of my grandson.  He didn’t say this….but he could have been who the story was about!

“I was out walking with my grandson. He picked up something off of the ground and started to put it in his mouth. I took the item away from him and I asked him not to do that.

“Why?” my grandson asked.

“Because it’s been on the ground; you don’t know where it’s been, it’s dirty, and probably has germs. Sometimes germs make little boys sick and not feel good” I replied.

At this point, my grandson looked at me with total admiration and asked, “Grandma, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.”

I was thinking quickly and said to him, “All Grandmas know stuff. It’s on the Grandma Test. You have to know it, or they don’t let you be a Grandma.”

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but he was evidently pondering this new information. “Oh…I get it! He beamed, so if you don’t pass the test you have to be the Grandpa.”

“Exactly,” I replied with a big smile on my face.”   – Author, Unknown

My grandson frequently brings a big smile to my face too!

I’m really looking forward to lunch with the little guy!
