Out of the mouths of babes

My 4-year-old gdd has been visiting us for 2 months. She is going home next week.

Yesterday, I went through all of her toys to see which ones she wanted to take home with her. I couldn't believe how many she said to get rid of. For instance, if the toy didn't have all of the pieces or was just a Happy Meal give-away, she was very quick to say it should be thrown out. Since I'm the exact opposite, I found myself asking her if she was sure. She always said yes. I probably shouldn't be surprised since her mother has that gene as well.

That kid has the right idea.

RE: Out of the mouths of babes

Yep, I think you either inherited the gene or you didn't! My DM has it. I must have been standing behind the door when it was passed out! LOL

Smart kid! I have two DGDs that are sisters. One's like her mom (my DIL) the other one, sadly, is her Mamaw's child! LOL

RE: Out of the mouths of babes

Oh no! No more stuck marshmallows! I'm sure you've enjoyed having her. Good idea to have her help you go through the toys before she leaves. Especially, with your own style, you'd hang onto all of it "just in case." Now, you'll have room for toys on the next visit. Too bad I can't ship you some of these kids here. If school doesn't start pretty soon, I'm going to lose my mind.


RE: Out of the mouths of babes

I wish I didn't spoil her so much because even at that age she takes advantage. But we enjoy her soooo much and at least we've been able to spend a couple of months with her at a time so she can remember us and we can start to cement a relationship with her. It's very hard when you live on the other side of the country.
