You Will Never Be My Best Friend
November 22, 2015 7:06pm CST
We were out at brunch this morning after church with our daughter, son in law and their youngest son Jack who is 4. I told him I was going to be his best friend. He looked at me and said Grandma you will never be my best friend. I looked at him and pretended I was crying. He looked visibly upset and said Grandma, Grady is my best friend. I started to laugh and told him it's okay grandma has a best friend too. But I like you!! I love the totally honesty you get from little children and I guess he let me know that I can't be a best friend, I think being his best grandma is going to have to do!!

Kids just have a way with words that you never expect what comes out of their mouth that just makes you love them that much more than you thought possible their gods little angels from above from the mouths of babes

They really are so cute at that age. And sometimes they take things you say literally. When my oldest grandson was about 3 or 4, his baby brother came down with a stomach virus. I was talking about how he had a stomach bug and my oldest grandson thought there was a bug in his brother's stomach.
