this moment was almost surreal to me yesterday. was i really having a conversation with my son about a girl on the way home from school? isn't it a little early for this kind of talk?
brady: mommy, so there was this grill (girl in brady talk) at school today.
mommy: oh yeah brady?
brady: yeah mommy. the grill asked me how old i was. i told her i was free (three in brady language).
mommy: did you ask her how old she was?
brady: (he chuckles a little) yeah mommy she was free and a half. (he chuckles a little more and then it is quiet for a minute.) mommy she asked me to sit by her for snack. (then a little more silence). i told her no and then i sat by sammy.
mommy: why did you sit by sammy instead of sitting next to the grill?
brady: yeah because i can.
i smiled and laughed the rest of the way home. i forgot that we will have the grills are yucky stage for a few years before we really get into the swing of things. this mommy feels a little relief.
