I have the cutest niece and nephews ever! I just love them to death, and they love me right back, and that is a great thing! I’m going to brag on one today in particular. My nephew, Micah. He’s four, and just comes up with some of the best comments. Here are two great stories.
Just the other day I was talking to him, and the conversation went like this:
Micah: Krissie, you know what?
Micah: We have marshmallows growing in our yard!
Me: Oh really?
Esther: (his older and wiser sister) MUSHROOMS! not marshmallows.
Micah: Oh yeah (laughing) I mean mushrooms. We have mushrooms growing in our yard!
Apparently, Esther is used to correcting him on this one, he has a hard time keeping those words straight. Now this next story got relayed through my brother, Micah’s dad. They were in the car together, and Micah was asking him lots of questions about space, and snakes, and whatnot, you know boy questions, and my brother was giving him answers. And the conversation proceeded like this:
Micah: Dad, you are sooo smart. How did you get to be so smart?
His Dad: Well, I went to school for a long time, like 16-17 years.
Micah: Well, I went to that one school (his preschool) and all we learned about was letters.
Apparently Micah is very disappointed with the education he’s been getting, and who can blame him really, snakes and planets are so much more interesting to a little boy then letters.
I love my nieces and nephews, they are the best!
