06:19 pm: this one's for you, Mum & Dad
Teddy told Peter today that the only old people* he likes are Grandma and Grandpa, because "they don't talk like old people. Old people talk like this 'Oh! you're so cute! You're such a cutie!' Grandma and Grandpa don't talk like that."

He pulled his pants up over his navel, hunched his shoulders forward, and shuffled around like an old man.

Then he laughed his wee little ass off.

In truth, one of the many, many great things about Mum and Dad is that they don't condescend to kids. They have real, thoughtful, meaningful conversations.

...about trucks and trains and dinosaurs and new underpants and life in his world and all the rest.



* Keeping in mind that anyone over 12 is old to Teddy, including the LITs at camp (I assume LIT = leader in training, but don't know for sure).

Such privileges! (To count as part of Teddy's world and to catch up on your blog -- which, oddly, wasn't bookmarked on either Tootie's or Janis's computer.) And the nicest anniversary present imaginable (which definitely WAS NOT THERE ON THE 27th!) So, thank you, Teddy! Thank you, Kate! You, Teddy, have the cutest wee ass on the planet, as my grandmother might have said were she born when I was. But I promise I won't say such a thing in your presence lest I jeopardize your only relationships with old people.

Teddy is honored, I'm sure!

And I must say, biased as I may be, that he does indeed have the cutest wee ass on the planet. :)
