HA! I just talked to my little 8 yr old niece on the phone. She told me....
"I don't want to tell you this but, I'll whisper it.
A boy on the bus smiled at me"
Me: "He did?"
Me: "What is his name?"
"I don't know"
Me: "What color hair does he have?"
Me: "Just like your daddy huh"
Me: "How old is he? Is he the same age as you?"
"No. I think he is in (teacher's name) class"
Me: "What grade is that teacher?"
"I think 7th"
Me: (Heart Attack! HA!) "7th grade?!!!!" "Ask someone what his name is & what grade he is in" (Just like her Auntie...older men! Ha!)
"Ok, he is a couple of inches taller than me!"
Me: "Did you smile back?"
Me: "Grandma & Grandpa are at their house in AZ"
"They stopped in TX for 2 days!"
Me: "Ya, that is right. Oh we have to go get a balloon & let it go to send it to them. We can go to the Card Party Place & get one"
"I know where we can get one!"
Me: "You do? Where?"
Me: "HA! That is a great idea. It will be FREE! :-) Is that why you like Applebees?"
"Yep & the Grilled Cheese!"
Hopefully I'll get to see her a bit tomorrow.
