MANNERISMS: Recently I went out to lunch with my daughter and her son - who just turned two years old. At the table my grandson picked up a napkin and began cleaning his hands. He carefully went between each finger and the back of the hands, the palm and then again. This went on for at least three minutes. Of course I was amazed and asked my daughter how long he had been doing that and commented that most kids hate to wash their hands or barely do so. She laughed and said he hates dirty hands and is obsessed with cleaning them. I of course wondered what his past life might have been that would make him be so diligent about clean hands and my first thought was "I wonder what happened." Great-grandma is very clairvoyant and when I told her about this she began to ask me to ask him what happened. Then she said "Oh my - he was a surgeon, his hands had to be clean." Needless to say I intend on buying him a toy doctor kit - just to see how he handles it. It is also interesting to note that my daughter is going back to school to be a nurse and in a conversation with her a year ago - she said "One of my boys better get a law degree or become a doctor!" Which of course makes me wonder if this is what drew him to her. :cool THINGS CHILDREN SAY: When my son was seven (he is now 23), I went along on a school field trip with him and 30 of his classmates. At lunch time, the children all sat on the picnic benches eating their lunches. I had finished mine and was just sitting near by .... listening to them talk. A little boy got up from the table and yelled to his friend at the other end. He said - "Come on Brian....let's go play. We have our lives to live all over again." Needless to say - I was speechless...and could hardly believe what I had just heard. Yet , there was no doubt - it was as clear as day. Does anyone else have mannerisms they have noticed from their children or heard them say little things that make you wonder?
