Conversation With Baby Boy


Telephone.
Ringing.

"Hello?"
"Hey," said a meek little voice.


"Hey Baby Boy! How are you?"


"Fine. Can I come over tomorrow and play with you?"

 
There is no amount of anything in this world that would make me say "no" to him.
But I had to say no.


"I'm sorry, sweetie, not tomorrow.
My friend is coming over to have dinner with me at 5:00.
We'll have to do it another day. "

Silence.
Did he understand?

"How about the day after tomorrow? Next week?" I asked him.
 
Silence.

 How do I explain Mimi-needs -adult-time-and-cannot-watch-Bumpety-Boo-tomorrow without hurting his feelings?

"You see, Baby Boy,there won't be any little girls or boys here to play with.

"OK. I'll come over and play then."
Click.

Dinner for three.
Sigh.

Even tho' it be a threesome, I'm sure that Baby Boy is a worthy, even great guest. And greater conversationalist, wouldn't you agree??

Mimi Lenox said...

Ralph - I won't get a word in edgewise. And I might as well go ahead and rewing Bumpety Boo.
Sigh.

The word 'NO' doesn't exist Mimi - well as far as grandchildren are concerned it doesn't!

Mimi Lenox said...

Barb - He thinks he is a big boy indeed. Sometimes when he needs something from me (like reaching the milk in the fridge) and I let him "be a big boy" and do it himself he'll say "Mimi! I need help. I'm just a little kid ya know."

It cracks me up.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - Taking notes....

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

You always "glow" when you speak of him. I'm sorry I never got the chance to meet him...

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - I regret that too. He would have loved your zaniness.

Patti said...

Aaw, your grandson is so cute.

I'm sure you had a great time with him, as always. ;-)

Mimi Lenox said...

Princess Patti Thank you. He is something else.

Travis said...

Now that's a little man who knows what he wants and how to get it.

We can all take lessons.
