What is a pawpaw? September 5, 2008

Last night at church was children’s emphasis night. We sang lots of children’s songs at the opening of the service and it was great fun. At one point, I was describing to the kids a song that I learned as a small child in the nursery called Picking Up PawPaws and Putting Them in My Pocket. I asked the kids if any of them knew what a pawpaw was.

My niece Emma raised her hand and I asked “Emma, what is a PawPaw?” She pointed to the back of the room at my Dad and said “There’s Pa Pa!” Out of the mouths of babes…

For those of you who don’t know that a pawpaw is not another term for Grandpa, here’s a photo. It’s a fruit that grows around here in central Missouri and has a flesh that is similar to a peach.
