I had a very cute conversation with my oldest son yesterday, that reminded me of a play date he had recently.
One of Jaec’s best friends is a young lady called Taylah. Tay, has a great little personality and is a great friend to Jaec. About 2 months ago or so, Jaec wanted to have Tay over for a play date. He said “We can go shopping, I think Taylah would like to go shopping”. We invited Taylah shopping.
Rewind 2 months
One of my favorite things I like doing is listening to the kids conversations and when you through another child into the conversation (and a female at that), it makes it even more interesting. I was driving the kids to the local shopping centre (mall) and a conversation started on hair colour. Taylah noticed that all our kids had different coloured hair.
“Yve has Blonde hair, you have Dark hair Jaec and Kaine’s is in between”. Tay remarked.
“Yeah, and Mum has all the colours” Jaec responded. Mel has a bit of a multi tone thing happening. :D
During the play date, Tay went into every second shop, and took her time. I had to explain to Jaec, that ladies like to take their time shopping and like to look at lots of things. Jaec wasn’t too happy about that.
We dropped Tay home and I discussed it further… he understood, but wasn’t too happy about it. “Next time I think we will do something else”.
Fast forward back to present day
Jaec pulled me aside “I’d like to have another play date with Tay. I am OK if she wants to go shopping, I know that she will look at more stuff and will buy more stuff than me.” he said.
I’m pretty sure he just wants to buy the latest Ninjago Lego, but he is willing to endure the torture of a days shopping with a lady to get it ;)
