Hands and Knees Playing ~


My son just exchanged this little story with me and I thought it was so darned cute that I just had to share. First I must say that I love the fact that he gets down on his hands and knees and actually spends TIME playing with his son.  Not in front of the television or playing endless hours of electronic games, but good old fashioned hands and knees playing.  He just shared this exchange with me:  


My Son: "The kitchen is officially closed due to the railroad coming through and kitchen wide town construction. Including a barn yard, space station, parking garage, hospital, race track, sea world, two separate rail yards, a port, an airport and zoo. The 5 yr. Old mayor has ordered out for pizza because I don't have a permit to cook in his town !!!!!!"

Me: "that grandson of mine sure does remind me of his daddy! lol"

My Son: "Ha, not only is he mayor he has also taken the roles of sheriff, vet, doctor, pilot, fireman, race car driver, ship captain, conductor and everything else that I wanted to be. Making me a mere tax payer !!!!! Sure do love working for the man."

Also.. was going to say those grandloves of our sure did get the "use your imagination" gene from our side of the family. Also... if you don't have it and can't buy it but really want it ... make it or make do with what you got! I think we've all done right by our kids and now they are doing so with theirs ~ makes you kinda proud :)
