Something Nice on the ‘Net Saturday – on Sunday

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 23080 – 1105

Here’s the haps:

The fact of the matter is that your kids will do what they see you doing a lot quicker than they will learn by all the pontificating you can do. If you preach or teach something and say you believe in it, they will show whether you do or not. Especially at the younger ages. Our one-year-old (one-and-a-half-year-old?) grandson was here, whose dad is a mechanic. Some way, somehow, this little character got ahold of a bobby pin. We don’t allow little ones like that to have them, of course, and where he found it is a mystery but he was doing something with it that had us cracking up and shaking our heads. We have a collection of Duplos and one of them is this sheep:

He had the sheep held upside down in the air in one hand and the bobby pin in the other and would stick the pin into the hole on the back of the sheep and turn it a few times. Then he’d remove the pin and inspect the sheep. He was adjusting something very seriously and he repeated the process a few more times before allowing Grandmama to coax the bobby pin away. Of course, the fact that we were laughing so hard didn’t help. “I wonder what his dad does for a living?”

6-year-old Luke Flerlage in today’s story has been coming to do volunteer work with his mom at a place called Allelujah Baskets in O’Fallon, Missouri since he was 3. This place provides Easter baskets for kids and their families that are below the poverty line, living in various shelters, and seniors as well. Each year he has tried to bring stuff and this year he brought 12,221 items to help with the project. He learned to be like this from someone.

        I am pretty sure you are like his mom in some important ways.

    He is probably trying to check out if the sheep feels the pain. Hmm, he is either a biologist or an engineer.

      lol. I never thought of that. He sees his dad fixing cars and car parts all the time.

        My favorite car mechanics, Mahaul, has sent his two kids to college, one doing something medicine related and the other an engineer. I guess being the son of such a dad can really motivates him.

    He looks to me like a veterinarian in the making. Now, say “sheep surgery” 3 times fast.

      I’d rather say it than pay for it.

    So very true, the littles learn from the adults. I loved watching little Alex dance in Pueblo, NM at a Pow-Wow. A relative told me he was learning from his cousins by watching. It was a beautiful sight.
