But I can chew gum!

Sorry it took me so long to post today…I took the day off with Grandpa and Nonni and ran them around North Fulton County.  We did the circuit – lunch with Demetrius at school, lunch with Maya at Johns Creek United Methodist Church.  Two chicken sandwiches in two hours. 

I want to tell everyone a story.  Last year, about this time, Maya was in the 3-4 year old class at Johns Creek.  She was very upset because the 4-5 year old girls were out on the playground, and told her that she couldn’t play on the tire swing, because she was a ‘baby’.  Maya was so upset she cried in the car on the way home from school.  She told Kim, “I’m no baby, I can chew gum.”  Adorable!

Well, today, Mom, Dad, Kim and I were watching Maya’s 4-5 year old class out on the playground, and she, well, she kicked some 3-4 year olds off of the tire swing. 

Well, Kim and I looked at each other, and I went over to her and whispered that she needs to be nice to the little girls in the 3-4 year old class and she says to me, “Why?”

I was a bit taken aback, and then she said to me, “Do you have any chocolate?”  Since I didn’t she went back to playing…and I went back to standing by Kim, thinking to myself….she’ll be fine in a sorority…..
