Having Influence Where It Matters

My mother had all three of my nephews (her grandsons) at the house this week, working on gifts for Father's Day. She called to tell me about the following conversation she had with the middle one (who is 6 years old) about his report card grades.

...and I got an A+ in art! he told her.

My mother said she showed enthusiastic interest, asking Oh really, and why is that??

He said, I told my teacher that the reason I do so good in art is because of my Nana's "art room".

"Isn't that great?" she said to me, proud that her interest in art has been passed on to her grandchildren.

"Yeah, it is," I replied. "It's a good thing Nana doesn't have a pot smoking room."
