Awww, How Sweet!

So here I was yesterday, on my way to have lunch with one of my preschoolers from last year, and he asks me the sweetest question. He, his mom and gramma were to meet me at the girls house and then we were to drive my van to lunch. We had no idea where to go and then it was settled on Applebee's, I think I now have got them hooked. But first we had to find the place. I remembered it was a little ways toward the end of town, that there really wasnt anything around it much. We went down one street and I immediately recognized it as the way to the restaraunt. They weren't sure but drove a ways anyway, trusting my judgement...and sure enough I was right!
Once we were seated, Joseph wanted to sit by me. As we waited for our food, he would disappear under the table and interact with Alehe. I gave her a small bowlful of water with her collapsable bowl and Joseph insisted he give it to her. Coming in and going out, he even helped his mom push my chair, sometimes doing it himself.
I feel like I talked more to his mom and gramma than paid attention to him. But he didnt say much either. At one point in the conversation with mom and gramma, he pipes up and asks me if he could spend the night at my house. Awww, how sweet! His gramma mentioned to me that we ought to do this lunch thing at least once a month. We are talking about the four of us takign a day to go snowskiing at Discovery (its where they ski). I just have to find out where I can rent a ski and for how much. Not even five yet and he snowski's, WoW!
