I take my kids to the park almost every weekend because #1 it’s free, #2 it gets the house quiet for my hubby because weekends are not his days off, #3 it burns off energy and gets them out out of the house. Pretty good reasons right? Many weekends we run through Sonic during happy hour and I get the kids slushies to cool off after playing and they look forward to that.
Today was no different. Off to the park we went. After about 10 minutes there a lady came with her little one, maybe 2 years old. All the kids were pretty good with her. Lincoln was kind of “in her face” a little bit but he kept his hands to himself. Adrian on the other hand wanted to pat her head every time he walked by. I kept telling him to keep his hands to himself, it didn’t seem to bother her and he did it only a few times being that he was mostly preoccupied on the slide.
After we left the park we were waiting at a stoplight on our way to Sonic. There was a lady at the stoplight next to us who was probably about my mom’s age. Here is the little conversation I heard:
Adrian: Hi Grandma! Look it’s grandma! Hi Grandma!
Me: Adrian that’s not Grandma.
Adrian: Hi Grandma…Grandma! HI!! (knocking on the window)
Sanura: Adrian that’s not Grandma, that’s a stranger.
Adrian: Hi there stranger! Hi stranger!!
Wow, who would have thought I’d be hearing all this from my Adrian?
