Wow! That wasn't very nice, was it?
I'm sorry for gloating, but it's just that...
On Monday afternoon, little Miss Morgan and I were swimming and I asked her what she wanted for Christmas.
With no hesitation, she replied, "I want a back-scratcher, Grandma."
Hmmm....I'm liking the sound of this gift list. I'm going to get off super cheap this year in the four year old gift department.
I queried her further, though, just to be sure. "OK, that sounds good. What kind do you want, Mo?"
She thought. She thought hard. She put her finger on her lip and scrunched up her face. And then thought some more.
After great deliberation she finally answered me, "Grandma, I want a rainbow striped back-scratcher...hmmm... you know the kind?"
And I replied, "Well, I don't know if I could find one with rainbow stripes but I could try really hard."
"While you're looking," she continued, "Find one with candy stuck all over it. Then I could scratch my back and eat some candy. And scratch my back some more and eat some more candy."
So do you see what I mean? I told you she was mighty smart.
And just think, I'm going to have to file a patent for the "Snack and Scratch" soon before someone else steals this innovative and excitingly awesome idea.
So, what's that you say?
Can you say it louder?
Just a bit louder?
Yea! My Granddaughter's smarter then yours! I'm glad you understand now.
OK, OK. Don't get huffy. Your Granddaughter's really, really smart, too.
