The Nephlet Goes Into Real Estate

I don't have kids, but I'm a nanny and I also have a two year old Nephlet. This story concerns the latter.

The Nephlet's mother, my sister, has been having a heck of a time selling her house...two people have backed out on it at the last minute and "selling the house" has been one of the two hot topics around recently.

When the Nephlet was at Grandma's house last week, the doorbell rang. It was Great-Auntie coming over for a visit. (The Nephlet doesn't see Great-Auntie too often, maybe once or twice a year.)

Great-Auntie: Hi, Nephlet!
The Nephlet: (sticks out his hand, as for a handshake) Hi! Want to buy a house?

My coworkers want to know why I am laughing so hard! I think this is in contention for funniest post on this site!

Aww! I'm honored. My first post, too.

Grandma tends to refer to the Nephlet as "a pistol". He's hilarious. I can't wait for the Proto-Nephling or Niecelet currently percolating to get born; that's going to be pure comedy gold, right there.
