Grandpa Knows All...

This is a funny story:
My father reads reads our blog. He wants to keep up with what's going on with our family and our adoption. He wants to go with us to China when we go to bring Sophia home. My children don't read the blog so they have no idea what I tell the people in blogland about them.
Well, remember the post a couple of weeks back about Zach's girlfriend issues? I guess that my Dad read it.
Zachary was talking to me in the car last week and was blown away by some text messages that my Dad sent to him. He had no idea how Grandpa could know that he had a girlfriend or girl issues. To this day he is still wondering how in the world my Dad could know what is going on in his personal life.
I guess my Dad responded to his question by saying "I'm your Grandpa, I know everything!"

Heh. Good for Grandpa!

I'd love to have seen the expression on Zach's face when he talked with his Grandpa.

My DH and one of the boys check my blog every day. I couldn't write anything about them without getting "caught"!
