Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

Conversations with my children.

"Seth", said I, "look how handsome you are with your haircut, you look so wholesome and splendid, rather like a picture of a little boy in a church magazine, who has written in to bear testimony of the truthfullness of the gospel"
"Well" said Seth, "that is hardly likely to be true now is it?"
"Because I don't know the church is true, do I? I am seven years old, how would I know that?"
"Well, when do you suppose you will be ready to pray and ask Heavenly Father if the church is true?"
"hmmmmm" he said whilst scratching his head " just before I die I think"

" Hello, Elijah, how was school and where is YOUR coat?"
"Diss one is my toat"
"I think it isn't, your coat is red and most definitely not green and furry hooded"
"well, I hate nat toat, I want a brand new toat and I love diss one, I think I tan teep diss one."
" oh, well I'm sorry you hate your coat but this one belongs to someone else, you can't keep it, so you need to give that one back and put your coat on, OK?"
"no, iss not O-tay, tozz I really hate diss stupid toat"

"Hello mum, it's Dan, guess what? I booked you and H a hotel in London ( this one ) also, tickets to see the Lion King and train tickets, I'll stay with the boys. I paid for dinner both nights and I want you to have the very best time."
What can you say to that really? He's splendid.

Ok, I just saw "King" for a second and had a scary flashback. Yikes. "Lion King" is ever so much better. And what a boy you have in Dan. We should all be so lucky (or be such good mums) to raise such a boy.

As for Seth's comment, that's hilarious!

I think Seth may be smarter than all of us. :)

Too cute about Eli and the coat!

And Dan's huge offer, I'm jealous. I do hope you have a wonderful time Helen.

Wow, just wow! Seth sounds so wise beyond his years, that he would think that! Of course, I am sure that his words weren't exactly music to your ears, it shows that he is definitely going to be sure of things before he jumps on board with them and that will be great when he hits those teen years! His thought process is absolutely amazing!

Eli and the coat..don't they just have such amazing logic?! He didn't like his coat, so he will just take this one! So cute!

And Dan! He is just so great! I'd offer to adopt him, but well, we are a bit too close in age for that to be possible! So, all I can do is hope that my son grows up to be that kind and thoughtful! I hope you and H enjoy your time away!
