Judy and I met Niki, Alexa, Gavin and Gracie at Wingers on 136th and
Bangerter for dinner. Niki’s three especially Alexa and Gavin were their usual
noisy silly selves.
came time to order dinner Niki started to tell the waitress what Alexa wanted.
Alexa shouted out, “I want to tell her” and repeated “I want a grilled cheese
sandwich.” Audrey, our waitress was very cute about addressing Alexa and
repeating back, “You want a grilled cheese sandwich.”
little later, Niki called her friend Gail whose birthday is near Christmas so
everyone calls her, Noel. Alexa asked her mom, “Who are you calling?” to which
Niki replied, “Saint Nick,”
didn’t hear her well and asked in a loud voice; “Satin; your calling Satin?”
got a good laugh over that one.
reminded Niki about a conversation she had with Gavin the other day in the car.
She asked him, “Are you going to go on a mission?” or maybe it was, “Where do
you want to go on a mission.”
He started bawling,
“I don’t want to go on a mission.” Niki asked him why he didn’t want to go on a
mission and he said; because when I get home I’ll have to get married and I
don’t want to get married.”
said he repeated it over and over again; “I don’t want to go on a mission
because I don’t want to get married.”
Tonight at dinner she
asked him again and got the same response. She asked him what he wanted to do;
“Stay home and live with us?” to which he laid his head on her shoulder and
said, “Yes, I want to stay with you.”
long time Gavin and I have been playing the game of me saying I am Gavin and
him saying he is Grandpa. I brought it up again tonight to which he said; “I
don’t want to play that anymore.”
is three and Alexa is six.
