Dealing with little ones



Recommended Posts

This is uncharted territory, this WLS stuff, when it comes to most people in my family. So far with one notable exception, it has all been good. But dealing with my grandsons has been a bit challenging.

"Why aren't you eating very much food, Papaw?"

"How come there's no bread for your ham and cheese?"

Then when snack time came, and they started circling me like jackals on the Serengeti, I told them it was my special food. They wanted to know if the doctor told me I had to eat it. Then they wanted to know if my peanuts were made of Peanut Butter.

Simple answers are working well, with the occasional outrageous one thrown in for spice. At one point when they were all determined to wrestle with me, I told them I had to sit quietly and "digest". The oldest, who is seven, disappeared, and returned shortly thereafter with a drawing he had made. He said it was my stomach and the food going down. It took me aback somewhat, but if he doesn't end up as a mechanic (like his father) he just might become a surgeon.

Really cute, I'm an art teacher and that was creative and precious!
