Dinner date

After work today I met up with my favorite kid (and his mom) for Mexican food. It was so good to see them both!





In the middle of dinner Little P. said to us, "You two sound just like the girls at my school. Talk, talk, talk....about other people!" I replied, "Are you saying that your mom and I are gossiping?" and he said, "YUP!"

Haha!

I love that little boy to bits. He always makes me laugh!

    1. He sure is. His face is losing some of the baby roundness and he's getting very tall.

    1. He's a smart kid, too. His mom told him the total of their bill and asked him to calculate a 15% tip. He did it in his head, lickety-split. And he's only nine years old!

    1. Thank you Meike! He's growing up fast; he's already as tall as my chin and he's not even 10 years old yet. He's going to be a tall man.

    1. Ha! We mostly talked about coworkers. She's now the guidance counselor at the alternative school in our district, so I heard all about that and I filled her in on the people she worked with last year at my school. We're now thoroughly caught up on gossip! (Which little man had to suffer through!)

    1. That's true! He's gotten so tall and he's looking older in the face, all of a sudden. Why do kids have to grow up so fast?!

  9. I think you two have a great connection. I had a teacher in 6th grade, Mrs.Harmon I got close too. She even used to visit the house for lunch and all. She was the one who helped break my shyness. And even stayed in touch for years till she sadly passed on. But I still think of her all these years later, much like Little P will to I suspect.

    1. He is. His mother is doing a great job. When the waitress brought the check he pulled a $20 bill from his pocket and tried to pay. My heart! :) His mother had him put his money back in his pocket but I thought it was a sweet gesture.

    1. He's a sharp kid and notices everything. And he has the beginnings of a great sense of humor!

  15. If you ever take your favourite lad to England tell him not to make that sign with his fingers here. It will be misunderstood.
