24 Jun When Bop needs to shave…
Grandson Rowan blesses us with giggles every day. Each moment is a new experience for a child who is almost two years old. Playing with toy trucks, toy dinosaurs, blocks and more give him joy. Sharing the day with cousins allows time for lessons in learning and caring. From counting to cuddling his stuffed animals to running and looking in the sky for airplanes, this boy is full of love and laughter and tons of energy.
Rowan loves everyone. He has a special relationship with my husband. I am thankful for this bond between Rowan and Alan. While visiting son, daughter-in-love and Rowan, “Bop”(Alan) reaches down and gathers this sweet boy in his arms. Sweet snuggles and conversation between Rowan and his “Bop”. What a tender sight!
One of the recent chats between Rowan and “Bop” caused me to laugh out loud. “Bop” tried to snuggle close to Rowan for a hug like usual. This time, Rowan paused, looked at Alan’s face and said, “Bop dirty.”
What could he mean? Did he think “Bop” needed a bath? Hmmm……
No, “Bop” was not stinky or in need of bathing. Rowan was referring to the slight whiskers on Alan’s face. Yes, the whiskers are black with a little white sprinkled in here and there. If you look at those whiskers closely, they do resemble dirt.
Rowan is smart. We did explain how his “Bop” was not dirty, just needed to shave. Whether he understood about shaving or not, the conversation soon changed to other things.
The thoughts of an almost two years old changes quickly. One moment, he was worried about “Bop’s” dirty face. The next moment, he is running through the house chasing the dog.
Ahhh… the life of a child. Love and laughter. Just make sure your face is clean if you want a hug. 🙂
I am reminded that we are washed clean by Him. Have you asked Him into your heart today? Do you need to “shave” and get rid of the dirt in life? Ask Him for help. He is listening.
Have a blessed day,
