The younger, Lauren (age 4) wanted me to play Barbie with her. Now, Lauren is very insistent that some toys are boy toys and some are girl toys. So I asked her if grandpa, being a boy and all, should play with Barbies.
“Grandpa, you’re just an old fuddy-duddy, ” Lauren exclaimed.
“Lauren, what’s a fuddy-duddy?” I asked.
“Then why did you call me a fuddy-duddy?”
“’cause grandma said you are.”
Well, I can’t argue with that!
So, I played with Barbies. But I got to be a prince!
Life is good, especially with the blessing of grandkids!
