Looking Pretty Good!

It’s time for another installment of No Filter Friday.  This is the time that I love to share things that Skylar has said or done that have left us red-faced, laughing, and sometimes speechless.  If you are new to my blog or missed previous posts, you can click here for a complete list of No Filter Friday stories.

Last week we went down to Tucson to spend Thanksgiving with my mom’s side of the family.  My aunt and uncle are always so gracious to open their home and host our crazy crew.  There were about 30 people there and 16 of them were kids.  This was our 3rd year to go and Skylar tends to do pretty well while we are there.

Chris and I were sitting at the dining room table eating and visiting with my dad when my mom came in and said “You are NOT going to believe what Skylar just said to Pa!”.   Pa is my mom’s dad.  He will be 80 this year and he is still very active.  He and my MeMe don’t ever stop going!

Pa was sitting on the patio visiting with my mom when Skylar walked up.  The following conversation happened:

Skylar:  Hi Pa!  You are looking pretty good!

Pa:  I am?

Skylar:  Ya, you know, you are definitely older but your voice isn’t all scratchy like an old person?

Pa:  What do you mean all scratchy?

Skylar:  Oh you know how old people’s voices usually sound!  Hmm…what’s the word I’m looking for?  Oh ya….CRANKY!  You don’t sound cranky!

I should have known when I heard the laughter from the porch that it probably involved Skylar!  But honestly, I think this conversation with Pa was a vast improvement over how she handled my dad’s mom.  You can read that story here if you missed it.  I love listening to the way Skylar describes things!  I wonder why she thinks that all older people sound cranky.  It could possibly be that her current movie obsession is “Up” and that the older gentleman, Mr. Fredrickson, most definitely has a cranky voice!

Either way, I love that she searched for the word she was looking for and she found it!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
