More Conversations with Grasshopper (You Can't Make This Stuff Up)

On a recent evening, Grasshopper, JR and I were playing in the backyard together. Grasshopper is just starting to get into role-playing sorts of pretending...

Grasshopper to me: "You Daddy, I Mommy!"

Me: "You want me to pretend to be Daddy and you'll pretend to be Mommy?"

Enthusiastic nod.

JR: "If you're Mommy, and Mommy is Daddy, then who am I?"

Grasshopper: "You a girl!"

Takes in the aghast look on JR's face and the grin on Mommy's.

Grasshopper: "You a Big Boy girl!"

This is so cute! I think it's a compliment that he considers you to be a girl:)
