Mom came to stay with us for a few days while I recover from my gall bladder removal. (We're still not using the "S" word...surgery.) Lee has been in full entertainment mode. While they were in the waiting room, Lee announced to the entire room that his mommy works at Dairy Delight. Matt said, "Lee, she does not." And he quickly rebutted, "Except she does!" Maybe he wishes I worked there, so he could get ice cream any time he wants. He and mom were waiting on the back porch for us to get home. Mom saw a white SUV coming down the road, and she said, "Lee here they come." He looked up and said, "Mawmaw, that isn't a Nissan!" And it wasn't. I'm sure there are many more funnies from the day, but my favorite is about our neighbor's dog, Little Jake. Little Jake is a barker, and he usually runs when he sees Lee. Lee desperately wants to pet him, but he just runs away too fast. Today, they were outside playing, and Jake came over to play. Lee told me later how he wished he could pet Little Jake, and maybe when he is a 12 year old, he won't be scared of little boys anymore.
