Two first grade boys just came to visit. I had to stop and write to capture the cuteness of the moment. Being a young forty-year old, I found this exchange to be amusing and wanted to share.
“Mrs. Gensch, is that you in that picture?” Kyle asked, pointing to a portrait of my husband and I.
“Yes, it is,” I responded.
The six-year-old stared at the picture a while with a quizzical look on his face. “You sure did look different back then, Mrs. Gensch,” he finally responded.
“How so?” I inquired, wondering what was buzzing in his mind.
“Your hair was longer. I don’t know. You just look soooo different back in them olden days,” Kyle stated sincerely. He smiled and left for class.
“Them olden days,” I thought. I wonder what he would say if my mother was here.
