Not a Fun Fish

Our 6-year-old grandson was with me this week in the gap between school and summer camp. It was a week of non-stop chatter.

On Friday, he was telling me about an episode he had seen on ANIMAL PLANET.

"This man was trying to catch an alligator gar. It's a huge, monster fish!"

"Sounds like an alligator gar must be some kind of game fish," I replied, absently.

"Oh, no, Grandma!" he protested, "The alligator gar is NOT a game fish. It's a SERIOUS fish."

It is so very fun hearing young kids and their extrapolations about what is meant from words/sayings. Most of the time it is because they are just learning the literal meaning of words, and have yet to fully understand the nuances that so proliferate our language.

A three-year-old in our household also has many similarly fun ways to look at the world.

Thank you for your advice about my feelings of sadness. I appreciate them greatly and likely will try out your suggestion. And, thank you for stopping by my blog!
