Conversations with a grandchild.
The Perfect Gift
What are you going to get Mommy for Mother’s Day?
She’s your Mother not mine.
She’s your Daughter though.
When it’s Daughter’s Day I’ll get her something.
Grampa you’re being prickly.
That’s what Daddy says
When everybody knows you’re being a butt.
Watch your language.
Everybody says that and
Don’t change the subject.
I think you should get Mommy a new i-Phone.
Oh? Gee who would get the one she has now?
For a lawyer, you’re having trouble staying on point.
You have to get Mommy a present and
I’ve just given you the perfect gift idea.
You should be grateful.
I should be appreciative that the bandit
Only took my wallet?
No. You should be thankful to have
A loving granddaughter
Who understands you.
What color i-Phone would she like?
