Our oldest grandson Thomas is nearly four years old and is as curious as ever. On a brief road trip he began to touch My Beloved’s purse. He calls her Mama (his mother is “Mommy”).
“Are you supposed to be touching Mama’s purse, Thomas?” his Mama asked.
His head jerked up in surprise, and he pulled his hand from the purse. Thinking quickly, he announced, “I’m the Mama” and again began to reach for her purse.
Without skipping a beat, My Beloved started asking him a barrage of questions and making statements: “Mama, may I please have a cookie?” “Mama, I’d like some of that!” “Mama, Mama, Mama!” “Mama, I don’t like that!” “Mama…”
At this point Thomas had had enough. He let out a big sigh and said, “I was only kidding.” He sat back and didn’t touch her purse for the rest of the trip.
Your beloved is one smart mama Russ! ❤
She sure is! Thank you for commenting, Diana.
Good quick thinking, it is good when we manage to think quick usually I am a bit slow on the thinking of something that would be a good come back, I have problems with Leo touching phone but thankfully not my bag
I too tend of think of things I could have/should have done after it’s too late.
this is so great – what a wonderful lesson on the spot!
I thought so too. Mama doesn’t mess around when she wants to teach a lesson!
I’m sitting here laughing. Appreciating your smart grandson, and wise Mama. 🙂

One smart Mama.
She sure is!
