Finding this interesting, surprising and quite funny, I asked him why he thought he was allergic to them. He said; "They make me grow, grow, grow all the way to space and I hate them!"
Apparently he had been listening to the story, Jack and the Beanstalk. Of course, since I prepare food for him when he is at my house, this was important information for me to know. I am able to assure you, magic beans have not been on this grandma's menu!
I am sure you have wonderful, precious, sweet things your dear grandchildren have said; memories which continue to bring a smile to your face as well. Consider doing the following with them . . .
- First of all, be thankful. Grandchildren/children are gifts from the hand of God. Take time to thank Him for blessing you with these sweet gifts.
- Then, enjoy them. Enjoy the time you spend with them and when they say or do something which brings a smile to your face. These times are also gifts from the hand of God.
- Record them. Write them down, so you will remember.
- Remember them and tell your grandchildren/children about the things they did/said when they were younger. I do this with my grandsons and they always enjoy hearing about these things - plus it gives them the opportunity to see how they are treasured by us - we recorded what they said/did, we remember and we still treasure these memories - and more importantly, we treasure them.
