Candy Snatcher

**An honest to Goodness conversation held between me and my 5-year-old son, Russell. Backstory: My Dad is home from a stint in a SNF, for a few weeks. I am now his devoted caretaker and he (Russell) decided to go next  door to say hello because he missed him…

Me: You can go see Abba (what Russell calls his Grandpa). I’m sure he would like to see you.

Russell: Ok.

(He heads out the door and walks across the drive way to my Dads apartment)

3 min later…

Me: Russell, did you even say Hi to Abba or did you just steal some candy and leave? (he has a handful of candy)

Russell: No. I said “Hi”, and he said “Hi”, and I said “How are you?”, and he said “good” and I said “OK”…and THEN I stole some candy and left.

At least he was honest. And cordial.
