I thought I would share another cute story from my other sis.
SCENE: Nana and Pop are leaving after a long visit and it’s not going over very well with almost four-year-old A.
NANA: But we have to go home.
A: (in between wails) Why?
NANA: Because Pop has to go to work tomorrow.
A: (snuffle…snuffle) You stay…Pop go.
NANA: That might hurt Pop’s feelings.
A: (shakes head) Pop’s big boy. He says.
NANA: Pop would be very lonely.
A: (holds out arms) Pop take this.
(A. gives Nana her sacred blankie.)
Now how does one refuse an offer like that?
