I thought I’d share with you something that happened this morning, that was very funny. Um, I’m really surprised that I am sharing this, because actually you would think this is really embarrassing. Most people don’t normally want to share this type of experience, but it was so cute and innocent and funny. I just had to share.
My grandson this morning, comes up to hug me, and then he stops, and he kind of backs away very carefully and he gives me a gentle hug, and trying hard not to get to close. Then all of a sudden he says,” Mimi, I’m going to be careful because I don’t think i should hug you to tight.’ Then I ask him “Why, why not? Go ahead you can give me a big hug!” and he says, “No, I don’t want to hurt your baby inside your stomach.” I step back for a second, with my mouth open wide and begin laughing so hard and then said, ‘I don’t have a baby inside my stomach.” and he responds, “You don’t? and he goes, Oh! and I looked at him with this huge smile on my face, giggling. I said, “No, Joaquin! That’s not a baby in there. Mimi’s just fat! I just need to lose weight.” Joaquin then asked me, “well, how do you do that?” I said, “I will have to stay away from cookies and cake, that’s how I will do that.” He then says, “Then you’d better stay away from those cookies and cake, so you make yourself not be fat.” I can’t even control my laughter. I must have sounded like jolly ol Santa, I was laughing so much. As I try to regain my composure, I reply, “okay, i’ll do just that!”
Kids say the darndest things! They can be so funny, at the same time so innocent and mean well. They’re not trying to hurt our feelings. They are just being honest as children are. But when he did that, wow! did a big light bulb go off in my head. Because, when your grand child comes to you, and thinks there’s a baby inside your stomach! Lady it’s time to get serious with WW!!! lol
I hoped you enjoyed reading this short story, as much as I enjoyed writing it.
