Ane Speaks – her deprived childhood

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day, thank you. The kids gave me all the projects they’d made at Sunday School, Cubbies, and preschool, and then I got a silver heart pendant from the Webmaster and the kids. I also got to take a nap, read my library book, and eat at Red Robin for dinner with Grandma, Gichan, Auntie, Obachan, and my grandparents.

We had a spot of ice cream at my parents’ house after our Red Robin meal, and Gichan turned on The Flintstones – he had just found it on one of the kids’ OnDemand channels. “Have you ever seen this before?” he asked Ane.

She shook her head.

“What about The Jetsons?” he demanded.

She shook her head again.

“What kind of childhood are your parents giving you?” he asked in mock horror.

Ane shrugged. “They don’t love me,” she replied seriously.

I can tell that Gichan is glad that Ane is old enough to joke around with now.

    That’s too funny.

    When you think about it, that is quite a concept for children to grasp. And some never do. I have a neighbor that doesn’t understand teasing and gets quite upset if you joke with her.
    Congratulations Ane!

    I fully concur with Gichan, what are you doing?
