Yesterday, I met my daughter and grandchildren for dinner at Panera in Pewaukee. As we were sitting there, enjoying our dinner, I decided to let them know how much I enjoy going out to eat with them, as long as they behave themselves so well. "In fact, when we were in Boston Store a few days ago," I said, "a gentleman congratulated me on having such well-behaved children". I told the kids, "I had to thank the man twice. Once for letting me know how well behaved you kids were, and again for assuming I was your mother". So Ahnna said to me, "Well, you do look young." It was wonderful to hear from a 6 year old, and so I let her know that she would be getting a very nice gift from me for her upcoming birthday. Then her brother, the 5 year old said "Ahnna wants a Barbie doll that looks like you". I replied "really Ahnna, you want a Barbie Doll that looks like me?" She retorted, "Well, they don't make old Barbie Dolls"! Her mom and I laughed so hard, I thought we were going to choke!
