A phone conversation with Chase, our 4 year old grandson…
Who is this?
This is Chase Hardwick Matthew.
Well hello Chase Hardwick Matthew.
Do you know what I did?
I colored all over myself.
Mom took all my toys out of my room.
Do you know Goodwill?
She’s going to give them all to Goodwill.
That’s what happens sometimes.
I colored all over.
Do you think that was a good decision?
What are you going to do to fix it?
I could color on paper.
That sounds like a good choice to me….
Do you want to talk to Raun now?
A year ago, Chase was walking up our stairs and I heard him say, “Well that wasn’t a good decision.” I never figured out what he had done, but obviously the kid has a handle on decision making – even if it isn’t always the right one.
