Conversations with Maximus

[Maximus launched into this conversation today when he put a Lego in the china cabinet.]

Maximus: I will just put this Lego in here to keep it safe from Maggie. Hey, Mom, when you put these dishes in here, you do it very soft, so they don't break.
Me: That's true. Who taught you that?
Maximus: Gramma Cheryl.
Me: Gramma Cheryl is smart. She can teach you lots of good information like that. Did you know that Gramma is really, really good at art?
Maximus: [gasp!] Is she good at Legos, too?
Me: Yes (thinking to myself: yes, after raising six boys, I'm confident she is quite adept at Legos!)
Maximus: Is Gramma Cheryl good at building big blocks?
Me: Yep.
Maximus: Is she good at Star Wars games?
Me: Yep.
Maximus: Is she good at playing space ships, like Axioms?
Me: Yep.
Maximus: Is she good at playing soldiers? And Clone Troopers?
Me: Yep.
Maximus: Is she good at computer games?
Me: Well, she's not quite as good at computer games as your daddy, but definitely better than your mommy.
Maximus: Hmmmm.

[Maximus was quite excited to learn that his Gramma Cheryl is quite skilled at all the most important and essential life-tasks for a 3-year-old boy!]

So funny! We have had conversations about the smart Grandmas lately, too. ;)

Cheryl, I know you love this!!! Don't you love to see Max's little mind work!?! Does he remind you of Lucas at that age?
