My 3 year old grandson, Rylan, spent the day with me, because he had a fever the night before.  Normally, he goes to preschool.

He started with a nice breakfast, consisting of yogurt, waffles, oranges, and milk.  The mochi crackers in the bag were to be eaten later as a snack.

Then he watched a show on his dad’s iPad for an hour.  “Grandma, I’m smarter than you, because you don’t know how to use the iPad,” Rylan said.

He enjoyed playing with his toy dishes.  “Mommy told me I can’t play with glass, because it might break,” he said.

“Soup Day” was one of the books he asked me to read to him.  He had memorized some of the words and could identify the vegetables pictured in the book.  Could you identify pictures of zucchini and mushrooms when you were Rylan’s age?

He drew a picture with his many crayons.

This is Rylan’s Abstract Art.  He wanted me to draw a crab. I asked, “How many legs does a crab have?  Six?”  “No, eight,” he replied.  I told him I would draw a crab some other time.  This drawing is fine the way it is, and it is his work.

Rylan:  “Fruit Snacks don’t make a mess and crumbs.”  Me:  “Who said?”  Rylan:  “I made that up myself.”

Rylan is my favorite grandson.  Actually, he is my ONLY grandson.  Ha.

    I could identify veggies from our Victory Garden. I remember radishes, carrots, spinach, and watermelons best. I could read at age 3, but don’t know how many veggie words, I knew. I liked the story of Ferdinand the Bull best, so I knew matadors, picadors, etc.

    Ryan is a city boy, however, so he is doing very well to link veggie words with pictures. Now he must eat his spinach. Dianne

    It looks like Rylan’s mother packs a great day care bag for Granny to keep Rylan fed and happy. And I know he loves his grandma. I love no “mess and crumbs”!
