A Little Deviled Ham
This is Parker, my great-nephew.Â He is not only a great-nephew because he is my nephew’s son, he’s a great nephew because he is a great kid.Â This one is all boy and all ham.Â He loved posing for the camera and having his picture taken.
At one point Parker and I were playing, and I reached out to tickle him.Â He has the most incredible laugh and you just can’t hear it without laughing with him.Â It is the sound of pure joy.
Well, I was tickling Parker so I could hear his great laugh and he said, “Stop.Â You’re not supposed to tickle me!”Â Well, because he asked I stopped tickling, but I had to know, “Why am I not supposed to tickle you?”Â He told me that when I tickled him it made him laugh.Â I explained that I knew that and I wanted him to laugh.Â He said, “No.Â Just, no. Okay?”
I was very sad and I gave him my “I am very sad” look.Â I said, “But Parker, if I am not supposed to tickle you, why do you keep your tickles right out here where just anybody can reach them?”
Parker gave me that exasperated look that only 6 year-olds have perfected and explained, “I have to keep my tickles right here because I am too short to hide them!”
Parker is adorable!! what a sweet little boy!
Mar — he really is as precious as he looks — but incredibly well-behaved and well mannered.
I LOVE kid logic! LOL
Susan — so do I.
H;ave got to agree the kid is pretty awweesome!!!!
Caryl — I was pretty impressed with Parker and his big sister.
I like that nephew! Can we borrow him some time?
I also like your Officer Justice. I believe there are still ones like him out there. Do you?
Quilly, you can join my choir! I am organizing for Heaven. It will be all those people, including me, who have been ASKED NOT to sing in a church choird. You weren’t formally requested not to sing but for a friend I will sign you up. 🙂
Tomorrow I am coming home from London. Mrs. Jim will stay until August 4. So I will be getting out my old bachelor cookbook (I wrote it myself) and dusting it off. My favorites I can’t wait! Split pea soup with sauteed hot dogs and onions will be the first item I ‘cook.’
Jim — I don’t loan out children who don’t belong to me and I am thinking that his parents would have to get to know you a lot better before they agreed to loan you their kid.
I do think there are still more good people in the world then bad, and I think that includes cops — even cops who wear mirrored shades and look scary!
Thanks, Jim. I know that my heavenly voice will be everything my earthly one isn’t.
Enjoy your bachelor days! Stock up on Gaviscon!
Oh my goodness! HE is adorable!!! Sounds like you and he were MADE for each other!
Melli — kids make great toys. 😉
Those 6 year old laughs are just the best — if you could bottle them and save them for a rainy day you’d make a fortune!
He’s so blessed to have you, too!
Kelley — I think Fischer-Price did that. They made the product bright orange and fuzzy and called it, Tickle Me Elmo.
He is the cutest little boy, and I can see the sparkle (mischief) in his eyes. 🙂
Glad you got to bond with him.
Betty — so am I. Parker and his sister are great kids.
I love the logic of little kids! Six is such a fun age. He’s darling.
Linda — I love kid logic, too. It never fails to make me smile.
He looks and sounds like a great kid!
Akelamalu — That’s because he is!
Wonderful. What a magical boy! Lucky to have such a good great aunt.
Raven — I think all boys should have a bit of magic in them. It makes growing up much more fun.
I love little kid logic, too. What a precious moment!
Barbara — that’s why I wanted to share it!
parker looks a real cutie and a lot of (mischievous) fun
Polona — that’s him, indeed!
He’s soooo cute!!!!!!!
Teresa — isn’t he, though?
I just love that name Parker. I’m glad you are enjoying him. I have a six year old neice and I adore her and her kid logic too!
CL — I think it’s a great name, too — and all 6 year olds have the best logic.
Oh gosh! What a sweetie! This is why I just loved teaching 1st grade.
Kay — they are precious and special at all ages, but 6 has a bit of extra magic, I think.
Oh he’s divine and almost as cute as my little Elijah.
