I hope you guys find some humor in this, or let me know if my son (and /or me for posting this) need psychological testing!
First of all I have to tell you that my son who's 5 is a major trip,as far as the things he says.Like most kids, he blurts out funny or peculiar thoughts .
Anyhow, we went to see my mom for a couple weeks,and during that time my mom started her Chemo. Not being sure if her hair would start coming out during the visit, my mom was telling him that she may be bald before he went home.
Well ,much to my dismay,this fascinated him, and every morning he would check her hair (!!?!!) My mom got a kick out of this. and much to my sons dismay, we had to come home before my mother was bald! She hugged him goodbye and promised a call (to my son) at the first sign of hair loss and a picture of her bald head when it completely fell out. This is all my son has talked about since we've been home! (I don't know if I should laugh or cry!?!)
I talk to my mom daily, but she called just for him the other day......I said "here honey, its grandma for you"........He ran for the phone grabbed it from me and said excitiedly "So, Gram, are you losing your hair from the chemotherapy?"
,,,,,,my mom couldn't understand what he was saying and kept asking him "what honey?" Well, after he repeated himself 3 times (he was frustrated - chemotherapy is a long word for a 5yr old). My mom finally understood what he was asking her and said " Yes sweetie grandma's hair is falling out"
...his reply? "Gee Gram, sounds like your losing your hearing too!!!"
I grabbed the phone from him, only to hear my mom laughing hysterically on the other end!! Then I had to laugh too. I am so glad it was my mom on the phone and no one else!
Needless to say, he is now checking the mail for his picture of his bald grandma! ;-)
