We all know how much Itty Bit loves his Grandma, right?
(Grandma pretending to be a robot. Yes, she’s going to kill me. Yes it was totally worth it).
Anyone else have a kid who behaves better for Grandma?
Cuz, Grandma is just fun. All FUN.
So the secret of having a better-behaved kiddo is just to have FUN?
Well, this woman ROCKS the fun stuff. So he should be a peach for her, right?
To his delight, she swooped in and kidnapped him for an afternoon of fun.
Meaning: shopping for toys – you know, for a little Angel-Boy (no kidding, she calls him that… I am completely blaming her for Itty Bit telling perfect strangers his name is Angel-Boy).
And Grandma apparently has not been reading the “Shopping With Kids” PSA’s on this blog…
They score an awesome train set, then head over to the Christian Bookstore.
Itty Bit hauls in his newest Thomas the Train character, Kelly.
Kelly (who I haven’t figured out is a boy or girl yet), sports an appendage that swivels, raises and lowers, and of course, EXTENDS.
Itty Bit walks around the store, carrying Kelly like a weapon, pointed straight out from him. A female employee begins to round the corner near Itty Bit.
To this point, my mother swears that Itty Bit was angelic. But even she couldn’t resist a smile while telling of Itty Bit’s bewildering misstep into delinquency.
(look close, the infamous double eyebrows make an appearance!)
Suddenly Angel-Boy falls to the floor and yells out “HEY!” with a scowl.
The well-nourished woman looks down at him and says with a straight face,
“He poked me”.
Oh help me.
My face is already red as my mother continues…
Itty Bit looked down at his toy, then up through his furrowed brow. By that point, both he and the toy looked every bit guilty.
“I’m sorry I poked you in the butt.”
And you know what that precious woman said to him?
“Are you four?”
