Yesterday I got to spend the day with my youngest granddaughter. Mia turned three last month and is going on 300. Yes, I said three hundred. This child has a very old soul as they put it. I’ve never been really sure what they mean by that, but I know what I think it means.
Already she is a very opinionated individual who will let you know really quick how the cow ate the cabbage as my mother used to put it. This becomes much funnier when this three-year-old has the vocabulary of a child over twice her age.
For the most part she is an extremely well-behaved little girl when she is with me, but she does have her moments. When she decides to dig in her heels about something, the fight is on and I suggest you don’t take bets that she is going to lose when she does this. She can be quite tenacious when she gets like this. Yesterday she pulled one of those moments with me, but I know I’m bigger and a hell of a lot more stubborn, so it was a short contest. I won. Outside of this one moment the day was awesome. She was a total delight.
The fun started however in the early afternoon when I told her she could get the hose out in the front yard and pay in the water. I know have a fairly large mud flat where earlier in the day there had been a nice patch of green grass. Oh well, it will grow back. Below is a link to a video on YouTube showing a little of how that happened, and I was fortunate enough to catch one of those moment when a kid does something that makes you lose it. I mean funny. So, I hope you watch the video and enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the moment and the whole day with this awesome and very funny little girl.
She was definitely a few pieces shy of a complete Erector Set.
"Nice equipment." said Alison.
"Don't I know it."
Would someone please make him stop excreting humanly body fluids?
