Conversations with Jonathan (21 - 30)

I began to publish Conversations with Jonathan on Facebook, toward the end of his pre-school experience. J's a talker, a bit of a smart-ass and always has that sparkle in his eye! On most days, I pick him up from school and we have a chat on the ride to Baba's. She lives on a mountain you know. He calls it Baba's mountain.

Over the summer, we look after him daily. He never stops asking questions and happily offers analysis of various things in his life. He certainly is entertaining.

Here then is part three of Conversations with Jonathan.

He just found out that his Baba has a twin and that means they have the same birthday.
J: Deda, guess what?
Me: It's raining.
J: Deda......guess what? We have the same birthday.
Me: Yes we do Jonathan, and that makes us special.
J: Are we twins?
Me: Yes J, you and me. Twins forever.
J: Deda.........
