Self-sufficient grandson

Rylan had a fever and cough, so he skipped school and came to my home.  As usual, he was self-sufficient and knew how to amuse himself:

Rylan 004-A

Rylan 003-A

He matched words in his workbook:

Rylan 002-A

And he watched a video on his iPad.  I can think of better ways to sit on the sofa, but this kid had no trouble balancing on the edge like this:

Rylan 006-A

He even knew how to take his temperature by clicking buttons on the thermometer and sticking it into his ear!  Then he told me it was wise to get a second reading.  He clicked a button and stuck the thermometer in his other ear.  He said the first reading was 99 degrees and the second reading was 99.5.  Not bad.

My 4 year old grandson is so smart.  I’m impressed.

    He is definitely a sweetie, and very smart and self-sufficient. I am sure we will be hearing great things about him.

    Little ones are so flexible. He’ll be better tomorrow, I know.

    I never worry for low-grade fevers…he sure is growing up fast!

    He must have been sitting next to a heater … hence, one ear .5 degrees warmer than the other. Okay, bad joke. Anyway, I’m impressed too!

    He’s a quick learner and obviously very observant too. Oh to be that flexible again!!

    Quick learner indeed!
    Did he not once come over to you looking for a cuddle? Some 4 year olds fluctuate from being ‘a big boy’ to ‘grandma’s baby boy’ at the drop of a hat lol

    Such a cute and smart little boy. His position on the sofa made me smile.

    You do have a smart and sweet grandson, Gigi. And it was wonderful to see that he did his schoolwork before watching the video.

    Children can perch as comfortably as monkeys. Love tales of your grandchildren.
