At our recent family reunion camping trip we had some really funny moments of “things kids say”. My favorite one was Lego Boy yet again. He’s at that age where he’s still figuring out how all the family relations work together. Like last time “I don’t have a mother“, so we’re working on it.
At the reunion we were sitting around the fire the first night and Lego boy asked where G’ma was. Since we LIVE with my husbands parents he’s used to one set of G’ma and G’pa P already. But we don’t get to see my folks very often so he was confused.
So I pointed to my mom and said “That’s my mom, so she’s your G’ma!”
He said (enthusiastically, because he says most things that way) “OHHHHHH, that means she’s your mother”
Then I asked him “That’s right, so if she’s my mom then WHO is my dad?”
He pointed immediately to my dad, very proud of himself. Then he said the best thing EVER, in a slightly shocked and matter of fact voice “That OLD man is your Father!?!”.
The rest of us busted up laughing, and we couldn’t stop laughing. The best part of this is my parents are actually quite young. They are only in their mid-50′s, and my dad esp looks pretty darn great for his age. But it was a great moment, that the rest of us enjoyed for the rest of the weekend.
OLD man… HA! I just hope I look that great when I’m in my 50′s! Considering how much I look like him I’m guessing I have a really great shot!
