Yesterday, I asked Brayden what he did during recess. This is a common question for us as Brayden will often not hang with the kids we would think he would, but rather play alone. Kind of odd for a social kid. So, I was pleased when he responded that he had been asked to play soccer by a buddy and had a lot of fun with him. (This is Tanner, a kid I just love, but one who lost points at church on Sunday, by boldly coming up to me and asking, “WHY did you dye your hair?”…..)
I called Tanner’s mom to see if she set Tanner up to asking Brayden and was impressed when she said she had nothing to do with it – good for Tanner. However, after hanging up with Nancy (Tanner’s mom), Brayden informed me that he would NOT be playing soccer the next day (today). Here’s that conversation:
ME: OH, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO INSTEAD?
BRAYDEN: WELL, THERE’S THIS GIRL NAMED TRISTYN IN OUR CLASS, DO YOU KNOW HER?
ME: (UH-OH) NO-
BRAYDEN: WELL, ANYWAY, SHE’S GOING TO CHASE ME AROUND AT RECESS AND I NEED TO BRING A COAT TOMORROW, BECAUSE IF SHE CATCHES ME, SHE’S GOING TO TIE ME WITH THE COAT TO THE POLE…..(BIG GRIN.....I DO BELIEVE HE INTENDS TO BE CAUGHT.....)
I quickly called Nancy back to inform her that Tanner should not be expecting company tomorrow on the soccer field….. Brayden has other plans……
He just cracks me up-
