I have a longer post saved and ready to go, but I had to share this one.
Grandpa came over to day to watch our "hopeless" team play football. We were still trying to clean up the place when he got here. Alyssa was sleeping so we only had to keep an eye on one child who was extremely hyper and happy to see grandpa even though he saw him on Thursday.
"Build airplane, grandpa?"
So he ran for the Duplos, brought the huge box and emptied the entire contents on the floor that we are trying to clean. Grandpa got on the floor to build with him.
Chris and I were both busy trying to re-wire the receiver, cable box, speakers and whatnots when I heard a noise. I didn't say anything because I thought it was Christopher.
Then I heard Christopher say very loudly, "grandpa farts!"
I turned around to look at where they were both sitting on the floor and I saw my father-in-law silently chuckling. So I started laughing too. It was then Christopher really started. "Grandpa farts! grandpa farts! grandpa farts!" Oh my gosh I felt so embarassed. Then grandpa says, "sorry about that"
I couldn't stop laughing and Christopher had to say it one more time. Grandpa then tells him, "yes, everybody does it."
It was only then that I warned him. I said, "yeah, he likes to call people out." What else could I say? It was so funny. That's my boy.
