Out of the mouths of kids - 4 flash 55's
The boys race into the house, slamming the door.
“Grandma, we’re bored,” they say in unison. “We used up the caps in our cap guns.”
“Why don’t you ride your bikes?” I ask.
Tyler replies, “Grandma, my feet are too tired. After all, they’ve been walked on every. day. for the last seven years. "
In the downstairs bathroom, the shower curtain kept getting pushed to the side.
After pulling it back in place a number of times, only to find it pushed aside again, I finally realized it was the potential of boogeymen hiding behind it that was causing Tyler to open it each time he used the bathroom.
Unbeknownst to me, Cris jokingly told the youngest grandson, “Grandma falls
asleep when she drives, so you had better help keep her awake if you ride with her.”
I wondered why he talked to me the whole 30 minute ride home.
